False Wisdom of Crowds

False Wisdom of Crowds | Philosophy, Thoughts and Society | Scoop.it

1. Next Generation Super-Influencers
2. Big Data’s New Wave Decision-Making
3. Real Human Intelligence

 

While it will still be important to keep people engaged in a participatory fashion, the value of these three forces will quickly supercede the complexity of crowds.

Beware online “filter bubbles”: Eli Pariser on TED.com

Beware online “filter bubbles”: Eli Pariser on TED.com | Philosophy, Thoughts and Society | Scoop.it

As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there’s a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a “filter bubble” and don’t get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview.
