Harnessing Crowds: Mapping the Genome of Collective Intelligence
This article identifies the underlying building blocks - to use a biological metaphor, the "genes" - at the heart of collective intelligence systems and shows how combinations of genes comprise a "genome" that characterizes each collective intelligence system.
The Dawn of the E-Lance Economy
It is important to consider sooner rather than later the profound implications of how such an e-lance economy might work, and to anticipate how the role of managers may change fundamentally--or possibly even disappear altogether.
Visualization of Communication Patterns in Collaborative Innovation Networks - Analysis of Some W3C Working Groups
First results of a project that examines innovation networks by analyzing the e-mail archives of some W3C (WWW consortium) working groups are reported, which revealed significant variations between the communication patterns and network structures of the different groups.
Sensible Organizations: Changing Our Businesses and Work Styles through Sensor Data
Wearable sensor devices were developed and deployed in a real organization for a month in order to study the effectiveness and potential of using sensors at the organizational level, and it was found that patterns of physical interaction changed dynamically while e-mail is more stable from day to day.
The Climate CoLab: Large scale model-based collaborative planning
Early usage experience shows how the Climate CoLab combines three design elements (model-based planning, on-line debates, and electronic voting) in a synergistic way, indicating significant progress towards an important goal in developing a collective intelligence system.
Solving Wicked Social Problems with Socio-computational Systems
Some of the challenges faced in developing the Climate CoLab are outlined, the current solutions to these problems are described, and the community can report on their experiences.
Putting the Pieces Back Together Again: Contest Webs for Large-Scale Problem Solving
A novel way of doing this with groups of contests called contest webs based on the analogy of supply chains for physical products, which provides incentives for people to reuse work done by themselves and others, and simultaneously explore multiple ways of combining interchangeable parts.
Social capital increases efficiency of collaboration among Wikipedia editors
The study finds that the higher pre-existing social capital of editors working on an article is, the faster the articles they work on reach higher quality status, such as featured articles.
Enhancing product development through knowledge‐based engineering (KBE)
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show with figures the potentialities of knowledge‐based engineering (KBE) methods in new product development (NPD). It estimates the business value generated
