"There is not much that any of us do that is more important than telling the company what we know," said Jeff Severts, EVP, Best Buy.
In 2004 James Surowiecki published his now-famous book, The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few and How Collective Wisdom Shapes Business, Economies, Societies and Nations. For many this milestone introduced the era of collective intelligence for people, business, institutions, the environment and civil society.
"Thanks for organizing an extremely useful and informative workshop!" said Professor Tom Malone, MIT Center for Collective Intelligence
New ways to share, trade and aggregate information using Internet-based markets are exploding. These powerful Web 2.0 social media and network knowledge markets help companies, schools, governments and individuals to acquire and master ever-growing bodies of knowledge. These prediction market capabilities achieve mastery of collective intelligence with stunning speed, efficiency and accuracy.
"Prediction markets are brutally honest and uncannily accurate," said Geoffrey Colvin, Fortune Magazine/
New collaborative market mechanisms and social innovations are driving collective intelligence networks. They resolve questions of science, technology, health, management, strategy, planning and policy far better than experts or management.
Collective intelligence inhabits the ceaseless flurry of self-correcting social exchanges, social networks and collective knowledge markets. They cover everything from the H1N1 pandemic to politics and business plans to ObamaCare and new product features. Enormously potent, these social networks and markets generate new ideas and amass and refine knowledge and collective wisdom with blinding speed, hyper-efficiencies and stunning accuracy.
Collective intelligence networks and knowledge markets have become commonplace in the enterprise. Top firms using prediction markets are Best Buy, Google, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, Abbott Laboratories and Yahoo! to name a few. Major analysts firms declare prediction markets critical to Enterprise 2.0 information and knowledge management portfolios.
"A company that can predict the future is a company that is going to win," said Bernardo Huberman, PhD, Senior HP Fellow, HP Labs
