The key goal of this workshop is to establish a multidisciplinary forum that searches for and studies the theoretical foundations, new paradigms, methodologies, technologies, and practical applications that will bring us to a more explicit and meaningful understanding of collective intelligence and social (networking) semantics on the largely tacit Value Web.
- It was not through careful top-down planning, but rather through the evolution of a set of elementary Internet technologies designed for decentralised use, that the “Socio-Semantic” Web emerged with such a dramatic level of complexity and scale, in less than two decades (see Zittrain’s generativity principle).
- Services are becoming the dominant unit of value-creation strategy, management, and operation:
- From a marketing logic point of view, this brings along a shift from transaction-based to relationship-based customer interaction featuring rich service-in-use sentiment and valuation.
- From a business innovation and management strategy perspective, enterprises seek a network-centric strategy that focus on collective innovation of services and platforms.
- From an IT perspective, service-orientation is a promising paradigm to functionally decompose inward-oriented organisational processes into outward-oriented business service components.
- The evolution of Web Relationships exhibit non-linear patterns as proposed.
Understanding the collective intelligence and social semantics of the “Value Web” start from these three premises because they are the product of the Socio-Semantic Web, Service Science, and Web Science so far. The goal and premises of the workshop will be studied from different perspectives, including computer science, marketing, innovation management and strategy, social sciences.
- theory, formal models, e.g. ontologies, and emerging new paradigms of organized and informal value-creating communities and their collaborative processes
- semantics of data and knowledge about value objects – inherent to Web relationships – that would lead them to gravitate towards unanticipated value propositions on the Value Web.
- auto-emergence of social semantics; harvesting and mining collective intelligence from community interactions;
- social network effects and collective intelligence
- emergent establishment of relationships to collectively produce value propositions such as products or services, common sense knowledge, or socio-political fora
- to make explicit the engineering and prototyping of supporting knowledge-based systems for collective intelligence;
- collective intelligence in linked data; evolution and quality assurance of such linked data;
- the interaction of formal semantics with informal social semantics; social web interoperability issues; modeling of situational awareness; hybrid socio-technical systems;
- identity and authentication of entities and services on the Value Web; related issues of trust, privacy and security;
- implementation and exploitation of social semantics as web services; self-organizing services tailored to communities; methodologies for adoption of such services;
- scalability issues for web-sized collective intelligence;
- “paid” crowds as a type of community where reciprocity is based on money;
- Decision support to reason about value and relationships in value networks
- Profiling social hackers
- Collective intelligence as viewed from the social sciences perspective
- Social innovation for the development of collective intelligence
