A CyberOrganism Model for Awareness in Collaborative Communities on the Internet To appear in: International Journal of Intelligent Systems (IJIS), January, Vol. 12, No. 1. pp. 31-56. (draft copy) The Internet/World Wide Web has grown very rapidly to become a major resource supporting collaborative activities in a wide range of groups, disciplines and communities. [This is a final draft, the article appears in: International Journal of Intelligent Systems 1997, Vol. 12. One of the problems of supporting scientific collaboration on the Internet is that of maintaining awareness between remote research partners that activities had occurred in one location that affected those in another. The World Wide Web (W3) was developed to be a pool of human knowledge, which would allow collaborators in remote sites to share their ideas and all aspects of a common project.5 The phenomenal growth of the web can be attributed to its emergent growth property: the ability for a new state of being to emerge naturally from a synergy among existing systems.

Collective Intelligence Thursday, Oct. 4, 2007 5 - 7 p.m. Bartos Theater Abstract A conversation about the theory and practice of collective intelligence, with emphasis on Wikipedia, other instances of aggregated intellectual work and on recent innovative applications in business. Speakers Karim R. Thomas W. Alex (Sandy) Pentland is the Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences at MIT where he directs the Media Lab's Human Dynamics research program. Summary By Greg Peverill-Conti [this is an edited summary, not a verbatim transcript] David Thorburn introduced the evening’s panel, explaining that the idea of collective intelligence has been a topic that the Communications Forum has covered in the past. He asked panelist Thomas Malone to provide a definition and overview of collective intelligence. Malone said the Communications Forum is an example of collective intelligence, in that it seeks to take advantage of the intelligence of the audience. Wikipedia is also an example of collective intelligence. Discussion

Creating Internet Intelligence: Wild Computing, Distributed Digital ... - Ben Goertzel Decisions 2.0: The Power of Collective Intelligence Information markets, wikis and other applications that tap into the collective intelligence of groups have recently generated tremendous interest. But what”s the reality behind the hype? Image courtesy of “American Idol.” The human brain is a magnificent instrument that has evolved over thousands of years to enable us to prosper in an impressive range of conditions. The good news is that, thanks to the Internet and other information technologies, we now have access to more data — sometimes much more data — about customers, employees and other stakeholders so that, in principle, we can gain a more accurate and intimate understanding of our environment. To be sure, companies have long used teams to solve problems, focus groups to explore customer needs, consumer surveys to understand the market and annual meetings to listen to shareholders.

"Collective Intelligence 2012": Prof. Tom Malone on how new technologies are changing the ways people and computers work together | MIT Sloan Experts Collective intelligence, in some form, has been around at least as long as humans have. Families, armies, countries, and companies have all—at least sometimes—acted collectively in ways that seem intelligent. But in the last few years, a new kind of collective intelligence has begun to emerge: groups of people and computers, connected by the Internet, collectively doing intelligent things. These examples of Internet-enabled collective intelligence are not the end of the story but just the beginning. The organizing committee spent some time debating the scope of the conference, and we ended up defining it as behavior that is both collective and intelligent. Collective intelligence (CI) is an emerging interdisciplinary field that overlaps with many other disciplines, including computer science, management, network science, economics, social psychology, sociology, political science, and biology (e.g., social insects).
