"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."

Nooron is Web software enabling people to collaboratively capture, explore, visualize, organize, filter and analyze knowledge. It is an open, computer-aided think-tank. It provides a framework within which participants present ideas, connect them to other ideas, devise criteria for idea evaluation, and then evaluate them. The resulting storehouse of assertions and opinions can then be navigated, filtered and visualized in new ways. Nooron supports the capture or importation of conventional facts and figures, and is 'knowledge based,' meaning that it uses Knowledge Representation technology to store richly complex and interrelated information.
Nooron is intended to be a suite of free (LGPLed) software clients and servers which together would form a system for magnifying collective human intelligence. It can help a small team work smarter, or a large population to collaboratively manage, analyze and improve combined knowledge. It is designed to integrate users and their knowledge into an evolving system, capable of improving ideas, and even improving the software used to manage those ideas. Unlike the majority of collaborative filtering systems, Nooron is based on user-extensible criteria to facilitate self-organization and evolutionary improvements.
What if software got out of our way so ideas could flow freely? What if using the web was like reading each others minds? So we could think a mile in somebody's shoes. What if my work merged with your work to become ours? I think in pictures, you think in words, they think in numbers, but we all think together. Our knowledge flowing, filtering and improving to serve and enlighten us all.
Co-intelligence is emerging through new developments in democracy, organizational development, collaborative processes, the Internet and systems sciences like ecology and complexity. Today millions of people are involved in co-creating co-intelligence. Our diverse efforts grow more effective as we discover we are part of a larger evolutionary enterprise, and as we learn together and from each other.
