The talk I'm giving tomorrow morning is primarily about my democratic process research project, but it's also the public announcement of new, very recent, results suggesting that information cascades, considered to be a dangerous avalanche that can make crowds act irresponsibly, can also be useful and make crowds smarter in some cases. Those results are in the last section of the slides I've posted.
