  2. 2.  Motivation  Federation  Federating Conversations  Scenarios  Set-Union Merge  Virtual Merge  TopicSpaces Merge Architecture
  3. 3. Joe is in Medical School studying to be a doctor Joe is preparing for a test on Bacterial Infections
  4. 4. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries Bookmark page with these tags Immune Response Bacterial Infection macrophages use free radicals to Macrophage kill bacteria Free Radical Reactive Oxygen Annotate page with this idea
  5. 5. Sarah lives a healthy lifestyle Sarah read that free radicals can cause cancer
  6. 6. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries Bookmark page with these tags antioxidants Antioxidant kill free radicals Free Radical Annotate page with this idea
  7. 7. Angel is a cancer patient with recurring bacterial infections Angel visits a collective intelligence portal to research bacterial infections
  8. 8. Angel becomes curious about free radicals—a new concept to him
  9. 9. Angel makes a discovery macrophages use antioxidants free radicals to kill kill bacteria free radicals ¡Ay, caramba! What’s this all about?
  10. 10. Angel makes a decision Sounds like I should not take any more antioxidant pills!
  11. 11. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries macrophages use antioxidants free radicals to Must Avoid kill kill bacteria free radicals Add a new Connection between the two ideas
  12. 12. Olivia is a Medical Doctor interested in immune system subjects
  13. 13. macrophages use antioxidants free radicals to Must Avoid kill kill bacteria free radicals “Must Avoid” Need to restate doesn’t really this information convey a proper sense of reality
  14. 14. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries Bacterial Infection Contraindicates Antioxidants Because macrophages use antioxidants free radicals to kill kill bacteria free radicals Create a new set of representations by Olivia gets bonus connecting the two points for justifying core concepts and her assertion. explaining the connection
  15. 15. Bacterial Infection Contraindicates Antioxidants
  16. 16. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries “Compromised host” as a new concept to be represented in the knowledge base
  17. 17. Use Collective Intelligence tools to record discoveries Compromised Host Appropriate For Bacterial Infection Contraindicates Antioxidants Because macrophages use antioxidants free radicals to kill kill bacteria free radicals
  18. 18.  As a Noun:  A collection of people, information resources, and boundary infrastructures (portals) together with many related boundary objects (user interface widgets, …)  As a Verb:  Topic maps merging without filters
  19. 19. "In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation...” —Great Law of the Iroquois Structured Conversation
  20. 20.  Transparency  Need to know why a merge was performed  Contestability  Need to be able to contest a merge  Need to be able to unwind a merge  User accessibility  Users must be able to  Propose a merge  Debate a merge
  21. 21. Installations for: Global Climate Change Situation Room, Gimcheon South Korea Government of Kuwait Planned: Universiti Sains Malaysia
  22. 22. Non-redundant resources are copied from one proxy to another
  23. 23. Proxies remain separate, but linked through merge Merge associations Association can be contested
  24. 24. Topic Map Applications provide Merge Proxy merge rules Agent Queue Topic Map Merge Merge agent can be Applications Rules distributed, remote, threaded, operating on proxies added to the queue
