Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Curation in Higher Education |

Brief but thought provoking article, including ideas about 'future universities'... "Let's focus on the resulting element - the "collective intelligence". Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described "collective intelligence" as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into "collective intelligence"; far beyond what we have today."
