The Climate CoLab: Crowdsourcing Goes Green
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation, Tools

“Wicked problems are those for which no single computational formulation of the problem is sufficient, for which different stakeholders do not even agree on what the problem really is, and for which there are no right or wrong answers, only answers that are better or worse from different points of view,” explains Thomas Malone, Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor and founder of the Center for Collective Intelligence (CCI).

The intractability of the wicked problem is what first inspired Malone to dream up the
Climate CoLab. Global climate change is a perfect example of the wicked problem. There is a deadlock of perspectives on how to address climate change, how severe it is, and whether it is even real. People with different political and economic viewpoints will answer these questions differently. Malone imagined a tool that would be able to represent these mutually contentious perspectives but guide them towards solving problems and generating strategies for addressing climate change.

Seven Great Citizen Science Projects
Distributed Knowledge

Many scientific advancements in prior centuries can be attributed to a single individual or, at most, two to three people that have either independently or jointly innovated. However, advances in technology, global communications and social interactions have meant that the 21st century will be recognized as the century where mass collaboration changes the paradigm.


Citizen Science has become more of a differentiator as scientists are now turning to crowdsourcing to engage large communities of home scientists to help process vast amounts of data and to draw accurate conclusions from scientific research.

Skeptic paper doesn’t necessarily “reject the consensus position” that humans are causing global warming. It may address a more narrow issue like ocean acidification or the carbon cycle.

Sentiment Analysis Milestone: More than One Million Human Judgments
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

We have been running a lot of jobs through CrowdFlower, but only recently did I step back and add up the tweets processed. For more than 200,000 individual tweets, we have received more than 1,000,000 trusted, human judgments from the CrowdFlower workforce! I know our research team, who had to do a bunch of judgments early on as we worked out a viable strategy, are grateful that we could get help from the crowd.

Chevrolet invite the crowd to "get its kicks" 100 years early
Crowd Creativity, Distributed Knowledge

After two prior successful campaigns, firstly calling on the crowd to create a 55-second film that illustrates the meaning of “Chevy Runs Deep” and following that up with a campaign called “gets its kicks" where people were asked to write a script for an iconic 30 second film which captures the unique spirit of the original Route 66 and Chevrolet, Chevy have once more turned to MOFILM to produce filmic stories that captures the next 100 years of Chevy spirit -- 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of Chevrolet.
