The role of AI in wisdom of the crowds for the social construction of knowledge on sustainability Maher M.L.

AAAI Spring Symposium - Technical Report English 2012 One of the original applications of crowdsourcing the construction of knowledge is Wikipedia, which relies entirely on people to contribute, extend, and modify the representation of knowledge. This paper presents a case for combining AI and wisdom of the crowds for the social construction of knowledge. Our social-computational approach to collective intelligence combines the strengths of human cognitive diversity in producing content and the capabilities of an AI, through methods such as topic modeling, to link and synthesize across these human contributions. In addition to drawing from established domains such as Wikipedia for inspiration and guidance, we present the design of a system that incorporates AI into wisdom of the crowds to develop a knowledge base on sustainability. In this setting the AI plays the role of scholar, as might many of the other participants, drawing connections and synthesizing across contributions. We close with a general discussion, speculating on educational implications and other roles that an AI can play within an otherwise collective human intelligence.

Journal of Management Information Systems English 2011 The success of Wikipedia demonstrates that self-organizing production communities can produce high-quality information-based products. Research on Wikipedia has proceeded largely atheoretically, focusing on (1) the diversity in members' knowledge bases as a determinant of Wikipedia's content quality, (2) the task-related conflicts that occur during the collaborative authoring process, and (3) the different roles members play in Wikipedia. We develop a theoretical model that explains how these three factors interact to determine the quality of Wikipedia articles. The results from the empirical study of 96 Wikipedia articles suggest that (1) diversity should be encouraged, as the creative abrasion that is generated when cognitively diverse members engage in task-related conflict leads to higher-quality articles, (2) task conflict should be managed, as conflict-notwithstanding its contribution to creative abrasion-can negatively affect group output, and (3) groups should maintain a balance of both administrative- and content-oriented members, as both contribute to the collaborative process. © 2011 M.E.
