Dr. Hallin is an author, entrepreneur, and a thought leader in collective intelligence (CI) and hybrid intelligence (CI+AI). She is the co-founder of Mindpool and Head of the Collective Intelligence Research Group at the IT University. Hallin is also co-founder of the Academy of Management’s 25,000+ member community for Knowledge Integration, Synthesis, and Engineering, and was formerly the founder and head of the Collective Intelligence Unit at Copenhagen Business School, from 2015-2020.

She is a UNDP knowledge partner and an OECD moderator of their first collective intelligence symposium. Hallin has also been a keynote speaker at events hosted by technology companies including Microsoft and Novo Nordisk, a research affiliate at MIT Center for Collective Intelligence 2021-2022, and co-author of the collective intelligence books:

‘Routledge Handbook of Collective Intelligence for Democracy and Governance’ (forthcoming 2023), ‘Global Strategic Responsiveness: Exploiting Frontline Information in the Adaptive Multinational Enterprise (2018)’, and the Danish book ‘Et Netværk af Hjerner (A Network of Brains)’ (2018).

Her story

Dr. Hallin’s work includes tapping into our unconscious and tacit knowledge through the aggregation of our intuitions (predictions) in order to advance decision-making and policy making across organizations and societies.

Tech scouting

In 2003 Hallin studied at Cornell University, New York. One day when glancing at the Cornell Hotel School, she became fascinated by the idea of testing how intuitions of the hotel staff can be of economic importance to hotel organizations. As they accumulate tacit knowledge from their interactions with guests, managers, and people from the industry, they build a bank of useful, nuanced intelligence. These resulting insights are often kept in each employee’s mind, instead of being harnessed through employee predictions about the company’s future.

The idea set Hallin on a journey around the world to study tacit knowledge and intuitive judgments. She first travelled to the legendary Raffles Hotel in downtown Singapore to interview top management and employees to determine their ability to transfer their tacit knowledge over many generations. Then, she identified potential predictive variables that could capture the knowledge of employees. This was followed by a trip to Alice Springs, Australia to discuss with information scientists and hotel scholars in a research seminar. Her endeavor then took her on a 20-year journey to study collective intelligence and the wisdom of crowds across organizations, in collaboration with colleagues both in Denmark and elsewhere.

How can we build sustainable collective intelligence (CI) systems as global deliberation instruments?

In Carina Antonia Hallin’s latest co-authored publication from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), in collaboration with Shweta Suran and Vishwajeet PattanaikRalf KurversAnna De LiddoRobert Krimmer, and Dirk Draheim, we identify time-critical challenges and potential solutions from emerging work on diversity, transparency, collective dynamics, and machine behavior, that require urgent attention if future CI systems are to sustain their indispensable role as global deliberation instruments.
