How collective intelligence emerges

How collective intelligence emerges | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The Wikipedia, one of the richest human knowledge repositories on the Internet, has been developed by collective intelligence. To gain insight into Wikipedia, one asks how initial ideas emerge and develop to become a concrete article through the online collaborative process? Led by this question, the author performed a microscopic observation of the knowledge creation process on the recent article, "Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster." The author collected not only the revision history of the article but also investigated interactions between collaborators by making a user-paragraph network to reveal an intellectual intervention of multiple authors. The knowledge creation process on the Wikipedia article was categorized into 4 major steps and 6 phases from the beginning to the intellectual balance point where only revisions were made. To represent this phenomenon, the author developed a visaphor (digital visual metaphor) to digitally represent the article's evolving concepts and characteristics. Then the author created a dynamic digital information visualization using particle effects and network graph structures. The visaphor reveals the interaction between users and their collaborative efforts as they created and revised paragraphs and debated aspects of the article.

The Sharing Economy Under Pressure - The American

The Sharing Economy Under Pressure - The American | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Twenty years ago, government officials were trying to figure out how to get the solo driver commuting in his gas-guzzling car to share a ride, thereby saving some space on the road and helping the environment. In 2014, people in urban areas are clamoring to ride-share through technology applications that better utilize invested capital in individuals’ cars, reduce the number of vehicles on the road, use fewer parking spaces, and have the added benefit of giving ride-sharing drivers a way to make money on their own schedule. Government officials, meanwhile, are now saying no to the sharing economy and yes to old regulations that in many cases are a source of revenue for municipalities and that keep an artificial scarcity model in place.
