How to Harvest Collective Wisdom on Complex Problems: An Introduction to the MIT Deliberatorium.

http://cci.mit.edu/klein/papers/deliberatorium-intro.pdf

 

The Deliberatorium is a technology designed to help large numbers of people, distributed in space and time, combine their insights to find well-founded solutions for such complex multi-stakeholder multi-disciplinary ("wicked") problems as sustainability, climate change policy, complex product design, and so on.

See this video for a quick tour of the concepts underlying the Deliberatorium, and see this paper for a review of the project's contributions to date.

Follow this link to access the system itself, which allows many authors to collaboratively create deliberation maps.

A read-only map viewer, which can be embedded in any web site, is also available:

ARGUMENTUM – Towards Computer-Supported Analysis, Retrieval and Synthesis of Argumentation [PDF]

Abstract. Argumentation represents a fundamental intellectual activity and is,
furthermore, one of the central tasks in the context of every scientific discipline.


Developing new arguments and analyzing existing argumentation structures is
of special importance for the field of humanities and, thus, for jurisprudence.
The analysis of existing and the synthesis of new argumentation structures
comprise sophisticated intellectual processes which are, nevertheless, bound to the natural limitations of the human information processing capacity.

 

Against the background of the improving electronic availability of a growing corpus of jurisdiction, approaches and techniques from the field of artificial intelligence offer a considerable potential for an automated analysis, retrieval and synthesis of argumentation structures.

 

===> The project ARGUMENTUM aims at exploring the potential and limitations of computer-supported methods for the analysis, retrieval and synthesis of argumentation structures using the example of law. <===
