Collective Intelligence vs. The Wisdom of Crowds

Collective Intelligence vs. The Wisdom of Crowds | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The idea of using games to collect the shared wisdom of thousands of players seems a compelling one — especially if one can develop, as Edery proposes, mechanisms for linking game play mechanics with real world data sets. Indeed, Raph Koster — another games blogger who has been exploring these ideas — does Edery one better, pointing to a project which actually tested this concept:

Why Humans Took Up Farming: They Like To Own Stuff - NPR (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

For decades, scientists have believed our ancestors took up farming some 12,000 years ago because it was a more efficient way of getting food. But a growing body of research suggests that wasn't the case at all.

Skibb- a new collaborative problem solving platform, revolutinizing ... | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It all started when Lauri and Henri met while attending the Reserve Officer School of Finnish defence forces (in Finland, military service is a duty by law) a few years ago. They became good friends and kickstarted a startup and testing some ideas. Soon after, they founded together a successful web development company, Lamia. But something was still missing, they wanted to create something new and not seen before.

Fast.Co Design: Experience is everything in the sharing economy - Collaborative Consumption | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“We increasingly consume products and services through renting, sharing, and purchasing subscriptions. Being “socially connected” is no longer just about having a lot of people to share your news with; these days, it’s about having a lot of people to share your stuff with–either for free or at a fraction of the market fee. It’s about collaborative consumption.” – Lada Gorlenko, Fast.Co Design

Innovating Our Way To A Peaceful and Liberating Anarchy | Enthea

Innovating Our Way To A Peaceful and Liberating Anarchy | Enthea | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Below is a visionary and concrete proposal on how humanity can create a truly free and peaceful society without coercion of any kind. A decentralized, networked society of rising collective intelligence that transcends any need for laws, legal codes, lawyers, police, courts, prisons or military force. It presents the idea of how laws are not only becoming unenforceable, but eventually unnecessary given sufficient forkability, transparency and radical material abundance. There are others who have talked about similar ideas like polycentric law, Jordan Greenhall’s “liquid jurisprudence”, and Roderick Long’s  post-punitive restitution system.

Network Trailblazer: A Conversation With Chris Anderson, Co-Founder & CEO of 3D Robotics and Former Wired Magazine Editor - The Network: Cisco's Technology News Site | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine for most of the 21st century, Chris Anderson has had a front row seat to the technological changes that continue to transform our world. He's explored some of these changes in his books, The Long Tail, about the rise of niche markets, and Free, about the seemingly counter-intuitive strategy of giving away goods and services for free.  His latest, Makers: The New Industrial Revolution, is perhaps his most meaty topic yet.

What's Wrong With The Internet? - The Awl

What's Wrong With The Internet? - The Awl | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Internet, yay! Internet, oh no!—surely, it’s obvious by now that there is as much reason for hope as there is for fear from our technological future. A rational and nuanced criticism will seek to define our true circumstances, identify dangers, and encourage beneficial progress. Thus far, however, tech critics have tended to extremes, either for or against the Internet: wringing their hands á la Nicholas Carr (The Shallows), or busting out the pompoms in the manner of Jeff Jarvis (What Would Google Do?). This simple-minded stuff will no longer do. It's into the vacuum of a powerfully felt need that contemporary theorists like Evgeny Morozov and Jaron Lanier have been drawn.

The Twlight of the Sharing Economy—or the Dawn? - Derek Thompson - The Atlantic

This was the idea that, in the embers of the Great Recession, people were giving up owning things -- spaces to live, cars to drive, clothes to wear, appliances to use, entertainment to consume -- and building better ways to share fewer resources for a cheaper price. This was bigger than hippie-nomics come to life. It was the idea that the Internet had connected us all, creating a world of inventory that could be shared and discounted with greater ease than ever.

Jeremy Rifkin's Distributed Capitalism Scenario

Jeremy Rifkin's Distributed Capitalism Scenario | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Energy regimes shape the nature of civilizations—how they are organized, how the fruits of commerce and trade are distributed, how political power is exercised, and how social relations are conducted. To understand how the new Third Industrial Revolution infrastructure is likely to dramatically change the distribution of economic power in the twenty-first century, it is helpful to step back and examine how the fossil fuel–based First and Second Industrial Revolutions reordered power relations over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

When Diversity Trumps Ability

When Diversity Trumps Ability | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A little while ago I listed a few of my favorite readings and videos about collective intelligence. But since then I have been extremely bothered by the fact that I forgot to include in the list some references to Scott Page’s work. In my opinion Scott is one of the most important references for anyone interested in subjects such as collective intelligence, epistemic democracy, crowdsourcing, prediction models,and group performance. For instance, his book “The Difference: How the Power of Diversity Creates Better Groups, Firms, Schools, and Societies” is one of the best readings I’ve recently come across in the field
