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.
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
