Keywords: Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence (kəˈlektiv inˈtelijəns):

Coined by Pierre Lévycollective intelligence describes the ways in which knowledge is produced and circulated within digital, networked culture.  The structuring idea that everyone knows something, and no one knows everything, facilitates the exchange and pooling of knowledge .


There are ample examples of how scholars use social media and other forums to exchange and crowdsource knowledge, but a conception of transmedia scholarship would ultimately need to formalize the wikilogic of collective intelligence.  This concept might be used to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration on projects, and create more dialogic and participatory relationships between author, text, and reader.
