ADVANCES IN COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE:
CROWDS, BIG-DATA AND COMMUNITY RESILIENCE

Villa del Grumello – Como (ITALY)

September 18-22, 2017

The past few years have seen a growing popularity and maturity of collective intelligence research, enabled by advances in information technology and complex systems sciences. Collective intelligence is defined as a shared or group intelligence emerging from the collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many agents (human or artifacts). The discipline intrinsically grows in a cross-disciplinary research, involving computer science, cognitive science, political science, economics, organization theory, sociobiology, crowd and network sciences. Moreover, big-data research and applications create new opportunity to develop the design of new perspectives for the growth of collective intelligence towards many complex systems and organizations. The main purpose of the School is to enable participants to the most relevant issues and tools supporting new research and application scenarios involving collective intelligence, focusing on the main topics of crowds (from crowdsourcing to crowd management), big-data (large and complex data sets coming from distributed sources to be dealt with innovative data processing application software), and community resilience (sustained ability of a community to utilize available resources to respond to, withstand, and recover from adverse situations).
