  2. 2. The Vision •  Computers have become mediators of collaborations –  Email, chat rooms, blogs, wikis… –  A flood of available information –  Different modes of communication •  Let’s take advantage of such information –  Logs of conversations –  Archive of documents (email attachments, blogs, personal web pages…) –  Human-computer interactions –  Social aspect of the communication and collaboration –  Needs to work for multiple languages
  3. 3. The Project •  DISCUS started in 2003 as an IlliGAL & NCSA collaboration •  Supports innovation and creativity: DISCUS: Distributed Innovation and Scalable Collaboration in Uncertain Settings •  Basic research components –  Competent genetic algorithms (HBGA, iGA) –  Advance chance discovery components –  Adapt and expand the analysis of social interaction –  Efficient data mining techniques for conversations –  Develop a social network analysis for creativity and innovation processes the
