Employ: Crowdsourcing

Definition: Crowdsourcing (Wiki)

”Crowdsourcing is a sourcing model in which individuals or organizations obtain goods and services, including ideas and finances, from a large, relatively open and rapidly-evolving group of internet users; it divides work between participants to achieve a cumulative result.”

In order to create an efficient working society, it should have good cognitive skills and a messaging style of the same kind.

Definition: Wikinomics (Wiki)

”Wikinomics is a crowdsourcing method, based on four ideas: Openness, Peering, Sharing, and Acting Globally. The use of mass collaboration in a business environment, in recent history, can be seen as an extension of the trend in business to outsource: externalize formerly internal business functions to other business entities. Mass collaboration relies on free individual agents to come together and cooperate to improve a given operation or solve a problem. ”

Wikinomics is a promising method: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything.

Crowdsourcing collects thinking power and cognitive skills to relevant challenges

In a long run, policies of politics and society should be changed so that the most essential, global and most critical local problems (see WEF: World Economical Forum) are set as main goals to be solved by the best professionals of the world. This change could be a big step towards the sustainable world.

Huge projects have already been executed using crowdsourcing – methods in the way of Wikinomics. Human Genome is the largest crowdsourcing project in the world (before 2018).

If the mankind cannot afford to solve the biggest problems, so what is it doing now?

Fig 1 shows how an expert thinks from ontology to methodology in order to introduce common interpretation and understanding for others. Networks use that information.

Commercial actors can be keen on those processes to get ideas for their products and services.

If there are thousands of actors in a process, then it ensures that the best alternatives to be found as an learning and analyzing phase to the others for planning and implementing.
