The emergence of collective knowledge and cumulative culture in animals, humans and machines image

Scientific discussion meeting organised in partnership with the British Academy by Professor Andrew Whiten FBA, Dr Ellen Garland, Professor Dora Biro and Professor Simon Kirby FBA.
This meeting will bridge between two research fields that have recently burgeoned, although largely separately. One field covers collective action and intelligence, the other cultural evolution. Through an evolutionary perspective spanning both human and non-human animals and extending to machine intelligence, the meeting will elaborate and deepen newly recognised intersections and linkages across these subjects and advance their integration.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recordings of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. An accompanying journal issue has been published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
