A good compendium of case histories of augmented collective intelligence -- Howard

 

"Perhaps the gold standard for collective investigative reporting is the MPs Expenses experiment by Simon Willison at the Guardian where 170,000 documents were reviewed by 15,000 people in the first 80 hours after it went live. The Guardian has deployed its readers to uncover truth in a range of different stories, most recently with the Privatised Public Spaces story. We’ve also looked at crowdmapping broadband speeds across the UK, and Joanna Geary’s ‘Tracking the Trackers‘ project uncovered some fascinating data about the worst web browser cookie abusers. #

Last year Germany’s defense minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, a man once considered destined for an even larger role in the government, was forced to resign from his post as a result of allegations that he plagiarized his doctoral thesis. It was proved to be true by a group of people working collectively on the investigation using a site called GuttenPlag Wiki. #"

Mobile: The biggest trend in health care communications

Mobile: The biggest trend in health care communications | doctors and mobile technology | Scoop.it

Your smartphone is going to help patients make better health care decisions.

 

The time for mobile health has come. Both patients and health care providers (HCPs) are becoming increasingly dependent on mobile technologies.

 

Currently, more than two-thirds of physicians have incorporated mobile devices into their day-to-day practice. The smartphone is becoming essential for professional use and, according to a recent study by Telenor Group, it is the most popular technology among doctors since the stethoscope.

 

The reason for such quick uptake of mobile devices among HCPs is that good mobile apps solve real problems in clinical settings. Physicians use smartphones and tablets for medical references, dosage calculations, treatment guidelines and patient education. Mobile devices also help HCPs to manage administrative tasks through email and online schedules.
