Have social networks replaced groups?

David Weinberger

Likewise, Facebook, Google Groups, Twitter, and the other dominant forms of “social software” (to use the term from 2003) are amazing at building social networks. At those sites you can jump into borderless networks, connecting to everyone else by some degree. This isn’t to say that groups have to have a selection committee and charge dues. Your friends and my friends on Facebook are part of a social network.

authority plus reputation

Harold Jarche

We are getting more interested in the informal system and the value of reputation as society and our organizations become more networked. In a networked world, reputation is gaining power. According to Daniel Mezick , there are two systems in an organization — formal and informal.

However, new ideas come from diverse networks with structural holes, often outside the organization. Effective knowledge networks are open and trust emerges through transparency as well as the acceptance of diverse ideas and opinions. The network gives back to us.

Emergence / Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Networks (specifically, neural networks, but arguably, networks generally) are recognition systems. We generally think of networks as pattern recognizers, but networks will recognize emergent properties generally.

Deep-Learning Networks Rival Human Vision - “AI now matches or exceeds the ability of experts in medicine and other fields to interpret what they see”. Machine learning grew out of decades old research on neural networks , a method for having machines learn from data that’s loosely modeled on the way a biological brain , - composed of large clusters of highly connected neurons, - learns to solve problems. Deep learning is based on multilayered neural networks.

Ten ways to create a knowledge ecology

Build networks of people who care. Don't try to manage your ecology by committee but cultivate communication and trust between those who care that it works and have the commitment to do something about it - whoever they are and whatever their role. A tweet yesterday prompted me to remember sage advice from Dave Snowden which I took to heart in my work with social tools at the BBC.
