Research in recent years has shed new light on the biochemistry and cognitive psychology of human interaction, with some startling and often counter-intuitive findings. Why does adding smart people to small groups not improve performance? Why are short-term, ‘Hollywood’-style projects so effective? How does sharing task progress lead to happiness? What are the benefits of having friends at work? Does Twitter make people smarter? Stowe will walk through a broad collection of research on social cognition, and show how social tools seem natural because they line up with the structure of our minds and innate social connection.
