Self-Organizing Knowledge on Distributed Networks Driven by Human
From New Frontiers in Collective Problem Solving, by N. Johnson, S.
Rasmussen, M. Kantor;
The goal is to analyze and facilitate how people, in the process of
accessing and using information on networks, create new knowledge
without premeditation. We argue that the symbiotic combination of humans
and smart networks will result in a previously unrealized capability of
collective problem identification and solution. This capability is based
on the pre-existing self-organizing dynamics of social evolution. This
symbiotic intelligence will greatly increase the success of
organizations in achieving their goals, better utilizing their resources
and preparing for the future. For the human society as a whole, this new
resource will improve our quality of life and vitality as a species.
