Collaborative Intelligence: Intelligence

Collaboration with an emphasis on the "intelligence" aspect.

What's intelligence for starters?

Here's a model I use to get things straight in my own head:

  • Data: Raw measurements and quantified items [numbers].
  • Information: Data presented in a format that's easily grasped by people.
  • Knowledge: Network of facts (data + info).
  • Understanding: A model of a system / thing - having the ability to make predictions about the system's behaviour.
  • Intelligence … I'm still working on this one, but here goes… Using the above to problem solve by using skills that:
    • Set and interpret objectives
    • Synthesise potential solutions
    • Analyse and evaluate (potential solutions)
    • Select the best solution
So, collaborative intelligence could focus on Internet collaboration tools [perhaps yet to be created] that help a group to:
  • Set and interpret objectives
  • Synthesise potential solutions
  • Analyse and evaluate (potential solutions)
  • Select the best solution
