This article addresses the advantages of knowledge sharing online, particularly the power of social media and an online business model. By sharing our online knowledge and working together, we achieve the highest amount of growth and customer satisfaction. As the author explains, "We can ask questions of our Twitter followers and LinkedIn groups, or we can search blog posts and white papers for what we need and adapt it to our own projects, saving time and money in the process".

The best part about this is that people are sharing their knowledge and ideas without expecting any immediate return on their investment of time and resources. Instead, there is a sort of unwritten rule to “pay it forward” because someday soon you will be the one needing advice.

Collective Intelligence

A slideshow describing the history, use, theories and conclusion on collective intelligence
Emily Rose Newton's insight:

1.

This presentation I found online I value the highest for someone who has never heard of the term 'Collective Intelligence". It goes through a brief, easy to understand history of CI and its varying uses in society, from politics to games and showing how the internet and Google are incredibly valuable resources for CI.

Being put together for educational purposes, the product is easy to understand making it a highly valuable resource for an introduction into the vast stretch of things influenced by CI. Furthermore, there is no bias in this slideshow - no one is trying to argue a particular way in which CI impacts the world, rather provide a definition and basis of understanding.

This interactive website provides a fun, different approach to CI by exploring the evolution of social collaboration. For those who can not stand to read long walls of text (such as the previous source) this website goes through the vast changes of CI, particular emphasis on the swiftness of developments since the introduction of the Internet. For assessment 3, this is a wonderful source in keeping things simple, entertaining and educational all at once. Furthermore, it does not try to push an agenda, rather explain the facts as they are.

What is Collaborative Intelligence?

How can we become more effective as a species? - what will it take for us to be able to work more cooperatively in teams?
Emily Rose Newton's insight:

5.

This short YouTube video offers a brief additional explanation of what collective intelligence is and why it is important. CI is our ability to harness the ability of groups of people, a skill that goes far beyond Intellectual intelligence and Emotional intelligence which are no longer sufficient for a modern society today. He very articulately explains how CI means smaller teams can have greater productivity and happier members. Business have become more streamlined and more effective. From an economical perspective, CI can only bring further benefits.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

6.

Continuing from the previous video, this YouTube video explains that some of the biggest inventions in the world were only achievable through collaboration. Furthermore, it is entertaining, light and educational. It explains that in every context in a modern world, a group is better than an individual.

This source is perfect for extrapolating further on the idea that sometimes CI occurs even when we don't realise it, and as a results perfectly fits into my approach on Assessment 3.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

8.

This slightly longer YouTube clip explains how our world is constantly changing, and the only way to ensure we keep up with these evolutionary changes is to work as a team. Created to accompany a Masters Dissertation for Effective Collaboration, As the creator explains, "Services and products are becoming more complex and the boundaries between disciplines are fading. However in many occasions the concept of interdisciplinary is misunderstood and not properly linked to collaboration. Currently there are many practitioners carrying out interdisciplinary projects at a very small scale, based on collaboration one to one. However this approach has big potential to be translated effectively into a bigger scale." In short, this video introduces us to the difficulties that can occur in interdisciplinary practices, from business models to the internet.

Abraham Hicks. Intelligence as a group and as an individual.
Emily Rose Newton's insight:

10.

A longer video, Abraham Hicks explores on a more specific level the difference between being alone and working as a team. The guest speaker uses the very apt explanation of a lone wolf versus the intelligence of a wolf pack. She also explains that everything we do today is somewhat dependent on previous collective intelligence. This solidifies the idea that continuing to work as a collective intelligence is best for everyone.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

12.

Working on from the last explaination that the internet has allowed us to be closer than ever, Jean-Francois Noubel explains that we need to continue to evolve. We need to build new collectives that emerge with new technology, social agreements with the help from the internet. Focus on start ups to build new collectives or societies capable of evolving and becoming smarter. Collective Intelligence has evolved from a concept to a social science. A group of individuals to build a society. He explains the "We" out of the "I" misses the invisible part - way to map reality. Every social code does not exist randomly, they perpetuate the 'We' through the 'I' making use of collective tools, such as language. He asks, how does the collective play within itself? How will this change in the future from the internet?

TheFree Shipping & 2-Day Delivery
Whether your company has 10 employees or 10,000, the office setup can inspire employees or inhibit their creativity. Employees identify the physical environment as a direct source of happiness in the workplace.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

14.

This article explains how the physical environment directly influences an individuals happiness, moving to another side of collective intelligence, collaboration and fostering that relationship from people. In order to be a successful group, one must be in a welcoming environment. Arguably why some internet webpages take off, and others do not. The community feel is just as important as the individual members of the group.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

16.

This video first introduces the idea of collective stupidity, and explains a group must have an open mind and respectful attitude in order to work successfully. One of the dangers of Collective Intelligence is a small mistake can have disastrous affects, such as failed shuttle launches. Hard to define, bringing together people with the use of technology in synergistic ways. Collective Intelligence is always greater than the sum of its parts.

IBM THINK Forum | MIT Professor Tom Malone on collective intelligence and leadership

Professor MIT Tom Malone talks about his research on collective intelligence and how it applies to leadership skills.
Emily Rose Newton's insight:

18.

To measure how intelligently a group acts, 'collective intelligence' has proven a bunch of smart people in a group doesn't mean the group will be intelligent, satisfied, motivated, coherent etc. For this reason, Collective intelligence needs to be monitored and actively engaged as not all groups will achieve the same outcomes. Example, Facebook vs MySpace when Facebook was first launched. Facebook saw exponential growth as the company worked with users to create the most seamless experience ever, while MySpace had remained the same format for some time.

Exploring further the idea of Collective Stupidity, this article makes us question why people make certain decisions, and how they affect us as a result. It explains that we must "help avoid unnecessary errors and disasters and to benefit from the explosion of new digital technologies". It is only through open and honest communication that Collective Intelligence will remain effective and continue to progress.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

2.

This article provides a more detailed and technical explanation of collective intelligence, perfect for a follow-on from the previously selected slide-show presentation. The article contains an embedded video for further explanation, as well as many sources and references in the article itself. Published through Edge, it is a well trusted organisation that aims to "seek out the most complex and sophisticated minds, put them in a room together, and have them ask each other the questions they are asking themselves"  proving to be a very reliable and trustworthy publication.

His article ends with the quote, "this approach to thinking about collective intelligence can help us to understand not only what it means to be individual humans, but what it means for us as humans to be part of some broader collectively intelligent entity" which I believe to be a very important thing to keep in mind when considering the power of CI and the internet.

Social collaboration improves team efficiency by 20% (infographic)

Social collaboration improves team efficiency by 20% (infographic) | Collective Intelligence (And Stupidity) Thanks to the Internet | Scoop.it

Social collaboration is becoming increasingly important within organisations and it’s easy to see why. Research outlined in this infographic demonstrates how collaborative software can significantly improve team efficiency.

 

According to a recent survey, online collaboration tools will play an important role in 75% of businesses by 2013. As we are already accustomed to social networking with friends, family and (sometimes) customers, using social software to collaborate within organisations seems a logical progression.


Despite this, it is astonishing to see how much time companies waste by using email for internal communications. Professionals send and receive over 300 business emails a week and spend an average of 2-hours a day reading and responding to them. Just as worrying is the number of documents we share using email – an average 15 a day. This makes it impossible for more than one person to make edits and it quickly becomes difficult to keep track of changes.


This handy infographic from Clinked (above) shows how social collaboration software can remedy this. Collaboration tools can help to reduce email volume by 30% and make it 33% faster for teams to draft documents. According to one study, 97% using of businesses using social software said they could service more clients, more efficiently.

By this source, I would assume people would have grasped the idea of CI, and its presence in an online world. This infographic explains through facts and figures the power that the internet has at impacting CI. These facts are somewhat astounding (although a few years outdated) as we witness how collaborative software and the internet are able to improve productivity. 

This infographic shows a more physical impact that CI has in a modern world as we begin to understand just how often we use it with websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, Gmail.

Published on a social media professionals blog, this is an explanation of certain insights in a way in which people who aren't necessarily tech-savvy can understand. Going through his other posts, I believe he is also a big online curator and find him to be a trusted and authoritative source.

Emily Rose Newton's insight:

Another entertaining clip from YouTube showing as example of collective intelligence in action, and the power different opinions and minds bring to problem solving to something you wouldn't have realized was possible. Furthermore, the fact that a TV show can be placed on YouTube to then be used to help describe Collective Intelligence showcases the power the internet holds in building a community online and in our every day actions. This pushes the idea, 4 heads are better than one. A group is always going to come up with more solutions than an individual.

Focusing more on the power computers and the internet hold on people, Mr Malone explains how collective intelligence has existed for a very long time, but in the last few years we have seen new kinds of collective intelligence enabled by the internet, such as Google. Google harvests knowledge, Wikipedia is completely created with almost no centralized control and without being paid. Their core question is, how can people and computers be connected so that collectively they act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before.

Going off the idea that a small mistake could have consequences, Collective intelligence also requires giving up a lot of individual privacy to work effectively in a modern society. If members are not okay with accepting this there may be issues in the future with collective intelligence. Using sensors and automated cars as a tool to explain, being a part of collective intelligence and giving up a small amount of privacy has benefits long term, if you are not a part of that CI, then you can't experience the benefits to their full capacity.

This video lecture explains how collective stupidity can hinder the environment. While we are intelligent beings, we are rather capable of quite stupid acts. Collectively, we engage in stupid acts as a group. In our every day lives are asked to make decisions about things that we have little understanding of, and make use of technology and gadgets with no knowledge of how they work. It is important to work as a group because otherwise we can't continue to progress.
