This Soundcloud podcast was created by Emma Congdon and myself to discuss Week 8’s topic of Collective Intelligence. We used this platform to allow listeners to gain insight into our own personal opinions on the matter.
Collective Intelligence is ‘shared’ or ‘group’ intelligence that emerges from the collaboration, collective efforts, and competition of many individual’s and appears in consensus decision making. As Emma mentions, Facebook can be a platform that supports collective intelligence in that by one person making a post and other individuals ‘commenting’ and ‘sharing’ their own thoughts, a group intelligence is formed. People are sharing their intelligence with each other and when debate occurs, individuals are introduced to an array of new opinions and ideas.
