MIT management professor Tom Malone on collective intelligence and the “genetic” structure of groups

MIT management professor Tom Malone on collective intelligence and the “genetic” structure of groups | From Individual Stupidity to Collective Intelligence | Scoop.it
Do groups have genetic structures? If so, can they be modified?

Those are two central questions for Thomas Malone, a professor of management and an expert in organizational structure and group intelligence at MIT's Sloan School of Management.

Using Big Data To Solve Social Discovery's Relevance Problem

Using Big Data To Solve Social Discovery's Relevance Problem | From Individual Stupidity to Collective Intelligence | Scoop.it
Compared to traditional social networks, social-discovery products face a unique challenge in needing to do more than simply connect folks who are already friends.

Social discovery and collaborative filtering

EmilieSoleil's comment, January 17, 2013 9:52 AM
Interesting article. Does this type of social network encourage homogeneity more than other types of social network? Does this lead to the formation of exclusive networks?
Pierre Levy's comment, January 17, 2013 1:40 PM
@EmilieSoleil I don't think that it encourages homogeneity. Just the opposite: it helps people to find like-minded people instead of forcing them into prededined moulds

Curators Create The Metadata Needed To Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence

Curators Create The Metadata Needed To Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence | From Individual Stupidity to Collective Intelligence | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Participatory culture writer and book author Henry Jenkins interviews cyberculture pioneer Howard Rheingold (Net Smart, 2012) by asking him to explain some of the concepts that have helped him become a paladin of the  and "new literacies" so essential for survival in the always-on information-world we live in today.

 

This is part three of a long and in-depth interview (Part 2, Part 1) covering key concepts and ideas as the value of "community" and "networks", the architecture of participation, affinity working spaces, and curation.

Here is a short excerpt of Howard response to a question about curation and its value as both a “fundamental building block” of networked communities and as an important form of participation:

 

Howard Rheingold: "...at the fundamental level, curation depends on individuals making mindful and informed decisions in a publicly detectable way.

 

Certainly just clicking on a link, “liking” or “plussing” an item online, adding a tag to a photograph is a lightweight element that can be aggregated in valuable ways (ask Facebook).

 

But the kind of curation that is already mining the mountains of Internet ore for useful and trustworthy nuggets of knowledge, and the kind that will come in the future, has a strong literacy element.

 

Curators don’t just add good-looking resources to lists, or add their vote through a link or like, they summarize and contextualize in their own words, explicitly explain why the resource is worthy of attention, choose relevant excerpts, tag thoughtfully, group resources and clearly describe the grouping criteria."

 

In other words, "curators" are the ones creating the metadata needed to empower our emerging collective intelligence.

 

Curation Is The Social Choice About What Is Worth Paying Attention To.

 

Good stuff. In-depth. Insightful. 8/10

You're welcome :)

It's interesting interesting that you mention POV and stance, as that is not something I had explicitly articulated for myself, but naturally it must be implicitly true. In that sense, it reminds me (again) that curation forces self-reflection in order to present the content better, and that can only be a good thing.
Liz Renshaw's comment, September 8, 2012 9:57 PM
Agree with posts about curation guiding self reflection. This interview in particular is top value and two of my fav people indeed.
Andrew McRobert's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:43 AM

8. This links a series of three interviews quite lengthy but there is some insightful information for the novice in the digital information age. There is video links within the article, including a great question and answer with Robin Good on curation. The video brings a balance to this inclusion.

Workshop report explores use of mass collaboration in disaster ...

The growing use of social media and other mass collaboration technologies is opening up new opportunities in disaster management efforts, but is also creating new challenges for policymakers looking to incorporate these tools into existing frameworks, according to a new report from the Commons Lab at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

The nature of collective intelligence

The nature of collective intelligence | From Individual Stupidity to Collective Intelligence | Scoop.it

Digital data stem from our own personal and social cognitive processes and thus express them in one way or another. But we still don’t have any scientific tools to make sense of the data flows produced by online creative conversations at the scale of the digital medium as a whole.


Howard Rheingold's insight:

Levy presents his ideas about the way human communications and digital media create platforms for augmented collective intelligence.
