Collective perception or collective cognition is the common cogntion of a particular object by more than one agent or person. It is similar to collective action. In both cases, all agents are focused on a single process. The spectators in a sports game can exhibit both types:

  • Collective perception: spectators in a sports game who watch the game
  • Collective action: spectators in a sports game who cheer collectively

Collective cognition can lead to interesting forms of collective intelligence and swarm intelligence.
