Competing With Data & Analytics
Familiar examples of collective intelligence such as the vastness of user-generated Wikipedia and the way Google has collected web pages to answer user queries “are not the end of the story but just the beginning” writes MIT Sloan’s Thomas Malone.
Malone co-chaired the Collective Intelligence 2012 conference, which was held last week at MIT. His co-chair was Luis von Ahn, an assistant professor in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. The goal of the conference was to review papers about behavior that is both collective and intelligent and to lay the groundwork for forming a new interdisciplinary field to explore these kinds of intelligence. Malone is director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence.
Presenters and attendees tweeted about the events at Twitter hashtag #ci2012, noting that 104 papers were submitted for consideration and 18 selected for presentation.
