What is the Global Brain Group?
The Global Brain Group is a small assembly of people who are doing high level research about the GB, including most authors who have published papers or books about the concept. It was founded in 1996 by F. Heylighen and B. Goertzel, with Heylighen as chair. At the moment it basically functions as a “behind the scenes” steering committee for the Global Brain mailing list, but it may take further initiatives, such as organizing congresses or publishing books. Its main function is to provide an “authoritative” body that can make its voice heard when important decisions need to be made. As the GB will affect more and more technological, social and economic phenomena, it will become increasingly important for such a body to exist.
