Collective intelligence is a shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals and appears in consensus decision making in bacteria, animals, humans and computer networks.

Swarm Intelligence: Is the Group Really Smarter?

Swarm Intelligence: Is the Group Really Smarter? | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it
Decentralized problem solving works better on some problems than others. According to an article from SEO Theory, swarms work in situations that involve discovery, testing, and comparing results. For example, ants finding the most efficient route to food, or iPhone users who use their Yelp App to find the highest-rated restaurant close by. By leveraging the volume of agents involved, you can act upon complex and rapidly changing sets of data. This works in situations where you are looking for the most efficient method of execution, or the most optimal process. Shipping companies, for example, use Swarm Theory computer algorithms to reallocate trucking routes based on up-to-the-minute energy prices. Swarm Theory works less effectively for creative processes like innovation, except perhaps as a broad directional pointer. A Swarm cannot paint the next Mona Lisa.

Gamers, their networks and collective intelligence

Gamers, their networks and collective intelligence | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

The next generation is growing up in a collaborative world and are instinctual in their use of collective intelligence and networks. We have become ‘informational hunters and gatherers” (Jenkins, 2006, location 2480) and while elder generations may still be isolated in old media, the younger generations, and especially gamers, are learning to work together in a way we have never done before. Games bring people together and allow for collaboration in problem solving, a skill that many of us could benefit in practicing.

Contributing to the Collective Intelligence: Blogs, Comments and Sharing | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it
Why do we write content? As a guest poster, I mean. Do we write content for acceptance? Do we write it for link bait? How about authority and recognition (completely different from acceptance)?

When we decide to write a guest post, we do it for the experience, support and ultimately the beautiful little traffic spike. We're prepared to engage the readers in their brutal honesty. As a guest blogger, the attitude should always be one of, "We're ready to see what the world really has to say."

Putting yourself out there is something we do daily as a company; especially since our bread and butter is content development. Therefore, as content developers, we love exploring and discovering a nice mix of international readers and, every so often, a thought provoking discussion ensues.

Building An Online Learning Community

Building An Online Learning Community | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

How can an instructional designer (ID) leverage social interaction online to engage learners, increase exchange and dialogue, and get better results, without losing the purposeful focus provided by an instructor or traditional course content and structure? Many IDs are intrigued by the potential of communal experiences online, but there is a great deal of uncertainty about how to proceed. Here are a couple of cases that you may find interesting. Afterward, I offer a roadmap for producing similar results.

Intentcasting - broadcasting intent to make something happen

Intentcasting - broadcasting intent to make something happen | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

Interest brings groups together, but intent is what brings teams together to actually get things done.

 

Intentcatching means connecting to an intent that has already been cast, in effect signaling, "I want this to happen too" or "We want this to happen too" and moving from a passive to an active stance towards the intent.

Twitter with a Dutch twist: immediacy and collective intelligence

Twitter can provide reliable news. It does not only do so at a random moment in time, but it is immediate as well. Searching for a topic on Twitter, or entering a query in Twitter’s own search engine, also expresses the idea of collective intelligence. Everyone knows (or experiences) something that all together forms a body of information that no single participant can contrive.

Not 2D one-way search, but 3D interactive exploration | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

That the internet lacks organization and structure to the point where it’s disorganization requires search engines to sift through countless numbers of pages to arrive at the sites whose interconnectedness is the most densest matching the search criteria is a problem that can perhaps be achieved spatially. Emergent systems, such as brains, cities, cells and ant colonies differ greatly from the internet in the fact that individual components (cells, neurons, people, etc) are able to organize and resiliently reorganize from the bottom-up. This bottom-up process...

The Climate CoLab: Crowdsourcing Goes Green

The Climate CoLab: Crowdsourcing Goes Green | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it
“Wicked problems are those for which no single computational formulation of the problem is sufficient, for which different stakeholders do not even agree on what the problem really is, and for which there are no right or wrong answers, only answers that are better or worse from different points of view,” explains Thomas Malone, Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor and founder of the Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI).

 

The intractability of the wicked problem is what first inspired Malone to dream up the Climate CoLab. Global climate change is a perfect example of the wicked problem. There is a deadlock of perspectives on how to address climate change, how severe it is, and whether it is even real. People with different political and economic viewpoints will answer these questions differently. Malone imagined a tool that would be able to represent these mutually contentious perspectives but guide them towards solving problems and generating strategies for addressing climate change.

According to Clay Shirky in ‘Information visualization: Graphical tools for thinking about data’ a good info-vis interface not only provides a visual representation of the data, but invites its users to ask questions about the data. When the interface supports the exploration of the data, the user will be able to form new questions, parallels and hypothesis.

As We May Think - A vision from 1945! Tagging, HTML and Google

As We May Think - A vision from 1945! Tagging, HTML and Google | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

As Director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, Dr. Vannevar Bush has coordinated the activities of some six thousand leading American scientists in the application of science to warfare. In this significant article he holds up an incentive for scientists when the fighting has ceased. He urges that men of science should then turn to the massive task of making more accessible our bewildering store of knowledge. For years inventions have extended man's physical powers rather than the powers of his mind. Trip hammers that multiply the fists, microscopes that sharpen the eye, and engines of destruction and detection are new results, but not the end results, of modern science. Now, says Dr. Bush, instruments are at hand which, if properly developed, will give man access to and command over the inherited knowledge of the ages. The perfection of these pacific instruments should be the first objective of our scientists as they emerge from their war work. Like Emerson's famous address of 1837 on "The American Scholar," this paper by Dr. Bush calls for a new relationship between thinking man and the sum of our knowledge. —THE EDITOR

Twitter is closer to emulate a Neural Network than Facebook

Twitter is closer to emulate a Neural Network than Facebook | Collective intelligence | Scoop.it

"[...] When you look at a Neural Network, you'll find that it is also an Asymmetric Network. Neurons have their axons that allow them to connect to other neurons, at the same time, other neurons have the freedom to connect their own axons back to the neurons connecting to them or choose other not connected neurons to hook up with.

It seems like Twitter is imitating nature's success in implementing this type of social network architecture.
The most common neurons in the brain (called multipolar neurons) process their in-coming and out-coming connections separately. On a neuron, dendrites are receptors for in-coming connections and the axon branches out-coming connections. [...]"
