Tom Malone's MIT Center for Collective Intelligence is emerging as the single most active researchsite for studying augmented collective intelligence. -- Howard

 

"If we want to predict what's going to happen, especially if we want to be able to take advantage of what's going to happen, we need to understand those possibilities at a much deeper level than we do so far. That's really our goal in the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, which I direct. In fact, one way we frame our core research question there is: How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before? If you take that question seriously, the answers you get are often very different from the kinds of organizations and groups we know today."

Collective intelligence on the edge - Matt Ridley

Collective intelligence on the edge - Matt Ridley | Urban Life | Scoop.it

" The key to human achievement is not individual intelligence at all. The reason human beings dominate the planet is not because they have big brains: Neanderthals had big brains but were just another kind of predatory ape. Evolving a 1200-cc brain and a lot of fancy software like language was necessary but not sufficient for civilization. The reason some economies work better than others is certainly not because they have cleverer people in charge, and the reason some places make great discoveries is not because they have smarter people.
Human achievement is entirely a networking phenomenon. ... "

Muy interesante esta nota y muy emocionante pensar el futuro de Brasil con estas cosas sucediendo como un telón de fondo todavía no muy visible pero que, sin dudas, tiene grandes posibilidades de ir haciéndose figura. Gracias Jandira

L’effet d’un participatif transformationnel et d’internet les administrations publiques

L’effet d’un participatif transformationnel et d’internet les administrations publiques | Urban Life | Scoop.it

L’administration vit actuellement une grande révolution. Sous l’effet de l’usage massif des nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communication, toutes les procédures sont revues de fond en comble; les barrières historiques entre les différents services administratifs tombent; les données et les informations deviennent compatibles entre elles; les usagers (citoyens, entreprises, organisations de la société civile) participent à la création de nouvelles valeurs; l’automatisation des transactions abaissent drastiquement les coûts; la personnalisation des services rend l’administration ouverte à de nouvelles formes de collaboration, les données jusqu’alors réservées à l’usage exclusif des administrations sont mises à disposition des usagers pour de nouvelles applications en co-création dans un esprit d’open source.

Enfin, les usagers eux-mêmes sont devenus des agents du changement en proposant des applications nouvelles basées sur les données des administrations mais exécutées en dehors de celles-ci. On parle ici d’action transformationnelle à savoir au-delà du cadre transactionnel.

"Collective Intelligence (CI) systems are complex by nature, and you don’t have to understand them as the sum of a certain group’s intelligence but, rather, the intelligence that emerges from it. The nature of this “emergent” behavior is different from the sum of agent parts, and it’s the reason why there are perfectly balanced ecosystems in nature or swarming behavior in many animal species.

A glimpse of human collective intelligence can be seen in Wikipedia. In 2001, few anticipated that it would become the most popular, collaborative, multilingual encyclopedia in the world. Does Wikipedia have powerful algorithms that quickly remove false or misleading information? No, the reliability comes from its collective intelligence."

Twitter is closer to emulate a Neural Network than Facebook (by Cecilia Abadie)

Twitter is closer to emulate a Neural Network than Facebook (by Cecilia Abadie) | Urban Life | 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. [...]"

6 mechanisms that will help create the global brain

Ross Dawson is a smart guy. The six mechanisms in the paper he discusses are: an idea ecology, a web of dependencies, an intellectual supply chain, a collaborative deliberation, a radically fluid virtual organization, a multi-user game. -- Howard

 

"One of the many reasons humanity is at an inflection point is that the age-old dream of the “global brain” is finally becoming a reality.

I explored the idea in my book Living Networks, and at more length in my piece Autopoiesis and how hyper-connectivity is literally bringing the networks to life.

Today, my work on crowdsourcing is largely focused on the emerging mechanisms that allow us to create better results from mass participation.

Some of the best work being done in the space is at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. A few of their researchers (including founder Thomas Malone) have just written a short paper Programming the Global Brain.

I don’t think “programming” is the best metaphor. I prefer to think about the enabling structures and mechanisms out of which collective intelligence will be created.

However programming can be a useful frame, and in the paper the authors propose six programming metaphors that will facilitate the formation of the global brain:"

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Urban Life | Scoop.it

"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."
