Collective Intelligence in International Affairs


Strähl Composite is an independent International Affairs start-up think tank that applies Collective Intelligence to assist leaders in the public and private sectors to make informed decisions, identify common ground, facilitate mutually-beneficial connections, find sustainable solutions to global issues and encourage present and future generations to leave the world better than they found it. 


Humans living in a particular country or region share customs, laws, and organization. Our collective intelligence is the shared or group intelligence that emerges from collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many individuals. It is evident in many disciplines in international affairs due to our innate ability to socialize and galvanize around common issues, and form decisions around those linkages that could affect many at the expense of a few or affect a few at the expense of many.

The world of technology is borderless and keeps expanding beyond imagination. Emerging technologies of the third and fourth industrial revolution coincide to assist us and themselves in making decisions. This artificial intelligence within machine learning, deep learning, and their many iterations, like immersive technologies, are modelled after how humans interact in physical form. This change in interaction fundamentally affects how information flows and has led to a form of collective intelligence that combines the best of what technology and humans have to offer. It also challenges our concept of metaphysics. This augmented ability of humans working together with computers (technology) means that we can absorb and process certain kinds of information at an alarming rate. This is a most interesting form of collective intelligence that can provide a variety of decision scenarios at superhuman speed. 

We have to be constantly aware of how we wield it.

Gen-AI: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Work, 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to reshape the global economy, especially in the realm of labor markets. Labor income inequality may increase if the complementarity between AI and high-income workers is strong, and capital returns will increase wealth inequality.

The Global Risks Report,


The Global Risks Report 2024 presents the findings of the Global Risks Perception Survey (GRPS), which captures insights from nearly 1,500 global experts. The report analyses global risks through three time frames to support decision-makers in balancing current crises and longer-term priorities.
