Living in groups presents both challenges and opportunities. Group
members have to resolve potential conflicts and make joint decisions
on how to coordinate their activities if the group is to remain cohesive,
but they can also draw on each other’s knowledge to solve problems
better, passing these solutions down from generation to generation to
build animal “cultures”. In this talk, I will summarise my research which
investigates the cognitive underpinnings of these phenomena ? group
decision-making, collective intelligence, social learning and culture ?
in both birds and primates, and tries to pinpoint general organizational
principles that have interesting parallels in human society
