Pietro Michelucci, PhD

Pietro Michelucci received a joint PhD in cognitive science and mathematical psychology from Indiana University and has been a science advisor to federal research agencies since 2006. He has actively supported the advancement of human computation through many channels, including a Springer handbook, an open-access scholarly journal, various speaking engagements and workshops, interagency initiatives in social computing, and citizen science working groups. In 2014, he led the Human Computation Roadmap Summit, a Computing Research Association-funded activity at the Wilson Center with input from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, toward a national initiative in human computation. As an organismic computing pioneer, he is interested in developing new methods for augmenting group efficacy, and developing high-impact applications of the capabilities that will benefit humanity.
