What is a Conscious Network?

A Conscious Network is a new class of social instrumentation, engineered to promote cooperative cognition and distributed reasoning. CN's transform complex social, psychological and anthropological data into culture.

Exotic Configurations

CN's are extremely sensitive to subtle changes to initial conditions. Careful manipulations of network topology have been shown to trigger unique expressions of emergent phenomena. The CO team refers to these states as "Emergent Property Machines"

Preliminary research has identified several exotic configurations which warrant further research:

High Performance Teamwork

Designer Culture

Physidigital Ecosystems

Customized Hierarchies

Mathematical Trust Markets

Intelligence Crowdsourcing

Spontaneous Innovation

Cognition Selective Communities

Granular Incentive Structures

Acephalous (leaderless) organizations
