Robin Good's curator insight, January 10, 2013 1:45 PM


Something quite revolutionary happened the other day, when Twitter official announced with this article, that it had introduced a "human computation engine" to more effectively identify topics and context belonging to their trending news themes and to what people search on Twitter.


To achieve this, Twitter has hired a small custom team of crowdsourced workers from Amazon / Mechanical Turk, and it feeds them in real-time with trending issues and topic they have to analyze on the basis of a specific set of questions. Here is a sample:


"What category does the query belong to? For example, [Stanford] may typically be an education-related query, but perhaps there's a football game between Stanford and Berkeley at the moment, in which case the current search intent would be sports.


- Does the query refer to a person? If so, who? And, what is their Twitter handle if they have one? For example, the query [Happy Birthday Harry] may be trending, but it's hard to know beforehand which of the numerous celebrities named Harry it's referring to.


Is it One Direction's Harry Styles, in which case the searcher is likely to be interested in teen pop? Harry Potter, in which case the searcher is likely to be interested in fantasy novels? Or someone else entirely?"


The article provides wonderful insight into how such a challenging task is carried out, and what measures have been taken to ensure highest quality results.


Check also what ReadWrite writes about it: http://readwrite.com/2013/01/08/watch-out-cnn-new-twitter-search-capabilities-will-rule-breaking-news


Pretty revolutionary. Insightful. Informative. 9/10

luiy's curator insight, January 3, 2013 6:02 AM
Stigmergy coordinates dumb agents like ants into seemingly intelligent behavior. It can also coordinate intelligent agents like humans. We're just beginning to learn how to design stigmergic collaboration environments. Howard

 

"Stigmergy is a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity.


Stigmergy is a form of self-organization. It produces complex, seemingly intelligent structures, without need for any planning, control, or even direct communication between the agents. – Wikipedia"


The future

A new system of governance or collaboration that does not follow a competitive hierarchical model will need to employ stigmergy in most of its action based systems. It is neither reasonable nor desirable for individual thought and action to be subjugated to group consensus in matters which do not affect the group, and it is frankly impossible to accomplish complex tasks if every decision must be presented for approval; that is the biggest weakness of the hierarchical model. The incredible success of so many internet projects are the result of stigmergy, not cooperation, and it is stigmergy that will help us build quickly, efficiently and produce results far better than any of us can foresee at the outset.

Social Media Will Play a Crucial Role in the Reinvention of Business

Social Media Will Play a Crucial Role in the Reinvention of Business | Content in Context | Scoop.it
Social media can bring ideas from the edge of the company to the core.
Jesse Soininen's insight:

Corporations, for the most part, aren't going to reinvent themselves by improving on the core competencies they've been honing for years. Instead, if they're going to change, they're going to do so from the outside in, allowing ideas from the edge of the company to penetrate to the core. Social media will be a part of that transformation.

Social Dynamics of Science

Social Dynamics of Science | Content in Context | Scoop.it

The birth and decline of disciplines are critical to science and society. How do scientific disciplines emerge? No quantitative model to date allows us to validate competing theories on the different roles of endogenous processes, such as social collaborations, and exogenous events, such as scientific discoveries. Here we propose an agent-based model in which the evolution of disciplines is guided mainly by social interactions among agents representing scientists. Disciplines emerge from splitting and merging of social communities in a collaboration network. We find that this social model can account for a number of stylized facts about the relationships between disciplines, scholars, and publications. These results provide strong quantitative support for the key role of social interactions in shaping the dynamics of science. While several “science of science” theories exist, this is the first account for the emergence of disciplines that is validated on the basis of empirical data.

See the interesting responses such as:

"

David Brin here. While Bruce S is right to growl and snap at the cyber-transcendentalists (I do it plenty) I think he is too blithe about ignoring how AI is likely to come together. If you knew anything about the area where the most money is being spent on advanced software, in total secrecy, programming the new entities to be utterly ruthless, parasitical and predatory... you would shudder and know fear.

I am not talking the military... but high frequency stock trading program systems. THAt is where "skynet" may emerge, suddenly and silently. Learn more... and be afraid!"

Brands have some new marketing opportunities as interest-based networks grow and add more mobile features.

Where Facebook organizes around one’s friends, or “social graph,” these new social media sites would organize around users’ interests, the “interest graph.” Interest based networks such as Pinterest, Quora,Mightybell, PandaWhale, Thumb and Fitocracy are just a few examples of companies we saw gain traction among consumers and investors in 2012.
