Designing Challenges to Harness C-IQ
[collaborative intelligence] emergence & complexity
I will first summarize outcomes of the think tank session at ALife X (June 4, 2006) and discuss proposed ways to harness C-IQ to design and support challenges through convergent process tracking. Competitions are Petri dishes to culture and study C-IQ, harnessing “empty constructs” that enable implicit ideas to emerge to become explicit. Collaborative intelligence embeds emergent principles into interactive frameworks for decision support, e.g. collaborative intelligence prompters, recommender systems, and semantic meta-tagging.
The discussion will entertain your blue sky ideas “across the game board” in two domains:
• ideas for challenges/ competitions to demonstrate how complexity theory can contribute to scientific knowledge and technology development. We aim to generate some strong ideas that can be developed into actual competitions.
• ways that complexity theory can contribute to “meta issues” of C-IQ (collaborative intelligence) in competition design, knowledge management, and information-sharing to make cross-disciplinary collaborative teams more effective.
