The collective intelligence genome
Abstract GOOGLE. WIKIPEDIA. THREADLESS. All are exeGOOGLE. WIKIPEDIA. THREADLESS. All are exemplars of collective intelligence in action. Two of them are famous. The third is getting there. Each of the three helps demonstrate how large, loosely organized groups of people can work together electronically in surprisingly effective ways — sometimes even without knowing that they are working together, as in the case of Google. Google takes the judgments made by millions of people as they create links to web pages and harnesses that collective knowledge of the entire web to produce amazingly intelligent answers to the questions we type into the Google search bar. In Wikipedia, thousands of contributors from across the world have collectively created the world’s largest encyclopedia, with articles of remarkably high quality. Wikipedia has been developed with almost no centralized control. Anyone who wants to can change almost anything, and decisions about what changes to keep are made by a loose consensus of those who care. What’s more, the people who do all this work don’t even get paid; they’re volunteer.rk don’t even get paid; they’re volunteer.

Conclusion Findings Collective intelligence has aFindings Collective intelligence has already been proven to work, and CI systems can be designed and managed to fit specific needs. CI building blocks, or “genes,” can be recombined to create the right kind of system. Four main questions drive CI “genome” design: What is being done? Who is doing it? Why? How? is being done?
