Social Technologies for Developing #CollectiveIntelligence in Networked Society

Social Technologies for Developing #CollectiveIntelligence in Networked Society | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

The methodology will allow to identify and analyze conditions that lead communities to become more collective intelligent, but first following research questions needs to be answered: how to increase engagement of passive society into collective decision making process, how technologies could help to structure the information, purify the positions, reconcile different opinions and formulate the real society voice etc. To solve social challenges further research is planned in the field with the aim to show how existing social technology parameters might help platform developers to create new IT based applications fostering self-organization, collective decision making and learning etc.

Collaborative research and mapping for Nairobi’s Public Transit

University of Nairobi, Columbia University’s Center for Sustainable Urban Development , MIT’s Civic Data Design Lab , and Groupshot are working toward standardizing and opening transit data for Nairobi’s Matatus — the informal and de facto city bus system — and expanding our findings, tools, and processes globally. Building on past Kenyan-based digital mapping efforts and open source transit software, the group will produce a comprehensive framework for collecting, opening and mapping Matatu transportation data toward a mobile and equitable Nairobi.

 

Currently underway, a primary round of data collection and local student design workshops are growing the understanding of this otherwise misunderstood and complex system. The first series of tools will be entering development this spring to improve on data collection and transport information management in the decentralized Matatu system. This project uses Nairobi’s active mobile phone community to develop a standardized Matatu bus route for Nairobi informal buses. By developing crowd sourcing applications we hope people in Nairobi can develop, contribute, maintain and own their own transit information.

luiy's insight:

Citizen science is an innovative concept to involve the general public in scientific processes. One of the best ways to help people understand science is by letting them participate in scientific research and experiments. This is what citizen science tries to achieve.

Citizen science is an innovative concept to involve the general public in scientific processes. One of the best ways to help people understand science is by letting them participate in scientific research and experiments. This is what citizen science tries to achieve.

 

The SOCIENTIZE project will coordinate all agents involved in the citizen science process, setting the basis for this new open science paradigm. The project will promote the usage of science infrastructures composed of dedicated and external resources, including professional and amateur scientists. SOCIENTIZE will set-up a network where infrastructure providers and researchers will recruit volunteers from a general public to perform science at home.

Individual citizens will contribute to scientific studies with their own knowledge and resources participating in an active way. Citizens will be donors by connecting their own computing resources, such us smart phones, desktop computers or other devices to science infrastructure. But, citizens will also be actors when they actively participate in the scientific process, in different phases: from short and easy activities to the inception of new research lines, leading people driven developments or in the development of software components, similar to open-source communities. We propose to open e-science to the people, even considering the knowledge and the time of the citizen scientists as part of the resources that constitute the e-infrastructures, and call this enhanced citizen-based infrastructure “c-infrastructure”.

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE IN HUMANS: A LITERATURE REVIEW (2012) | #CI


Via Claude Emond
luiy's insight:

A sample of literature discussing the collective intelligence in humans was reviewed and the discovered themes were categorized into micro-level, macro-level and emergence-level phenomena. The framework is similar to the conceptual model of Luo et al. (2009), the gist of which is the question of how macro-level phenomena emerge from micro-level interactions. The framework proposed in this paper emerged from data collected from contemporary literature. Therefore, it is arguable that the scientific community has already implicitly divided collective intelligence to the aforementioned three levels of abstraction. Making this division explicit hopefully brings some structure to the discussion and helps in fitting the pieces of the puzzle together. The categorization of themes related to collective intelligence (Table 1) provides guidance for selecting topics for further literature reviews and suggests how the results might fit into the big picture of collective intelligence in humans.

Another paper from the proceedings of Collective Intelligence 2012 (http://www.ci2012.org/) . Good up to date literature review in English

very interesting comment Luis. I am learning quite a few things here
