Sorin Solomon Director Multi-Agent Division, ISI Torino Professor, Racah Institute of Physics Hebrew University of Jerusalem Information anywhere anytime The Social Life of Knowledge Knowledge any way any type Knowledge of the people by the people for the people
knowledge no life in vitro no knowledge outside mind. In absence of host cells DNA chain cannot multiply or constitute life In absence of readers, the information is meaningless and it cannot transform in knowledge Like virii, information may revive into knowledge only if put in an mind.
knowledge Knowledge does not exist outside a knower A HUMAN !
knowledge information impossible to transfer knowledge !
kn1 inform Possible to contract knowledge as one contracts a flu:
kn1 inform media DNA (flu information) can “contaminate” somebody
kn1 inform The target person, can then contract the illness (or idea )…………………………..
kn1 inform kn2 inform ……..i.e. reconstruct the living (knowledge) structure out of the [dead] coded form (information).
Continuum kn1 multi-dimensional multiscale inform kn2 inform Discrete, 1-dimensional The construction material is the receptor’s proteins (thoughts). Thus the illness [knowledge] (the particular manifestation) is individual.
Continuum kn1 multi-dimensional multiscale inform kn2 inform Discrete, 1-dimensional Continuum multi-dimensional multiscale => different implementation of life (knowledge) is spatial, analogous and continuous, its coding is linear, coded, and discrete
Continuum kn1 multi-dimensional multiscale inform kn2 inform Discrete, 1-dimensional Continuum multi-dimensional multiscale => different The wonder is not in how fast and how far the virii get but in how one codes and decodes analog, spatial, protein behavior in discrete linear DNA chains…
TEST:for knowledge-information transfer: how to open beach chairs.
1 2 3 2 5 4 3 4 Overlap between 5 and 1 exponentially small Thus, the importance of exact reproduction in pre-writing cultures
1 ………… standardize and emphasize information and overt behavior Ignore and repress knowledge and internal dynamics ‘book knowledge’ and ‘machine knowledge’ 5 Standard “Knowledge” (?!?) Current way to solve this (rather behaviorist):
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 OBJECTIVES Offer a dynamic, open, adaptable, distributed, multi-dimensional view social knowledge emergence Add modalities, context, connections Allow personal stands, contradictory information, provisory (transient) knowledge Non-knowledge (ignorance) explicitation (as opportunity) Tolerant coexistence of contradictory and inconsistent views
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence support to group emergence and development interpersonal aspects : trust, compatibility and confidence interdisciplinary accessibility of competences and expertise.
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence represent and navigate emergent, evolving, non-hierarchical knowledge, Difference between knowledge and knowledge representation
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence And interactive: Place new information as it emerges where it fits how it fits
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence Allow expression of deeper (tacit knowledge) by providing UNFRAMED context. Accommodate both transient and lasting knowledge
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence collaborative knowledge creation, and sharing, self-structured work organisation collective intelligence the ‘neurophysiology’ of groups.
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence knowledge to be complete can /must be contradictory. (cf. Godel)
1 2 3 2 3 4 4 5 social knowledge emergence knowledge flow vs. workflow current ‘knowledge management systems’, = reductionist view of human knowledge.
social knowledge emergence intellectual property governance models - recognition, power, status, innovation, nature of leadership and management in the knowledge society.

AN EXAMPLE OF A SOCIAL KNOWLWDGE MACHINE A. Shalit, E Shir, S Solomon The community of Complexity is wide and varied. A map of this field cannot be compiled by any individual or committee. => A road map : the joint effort of the entire community
The Wiki –A collaborative authorship paradigm –Open content: Anyone may create new or edit existing pages. –Simple syntax. –Example:Wikipedia.org January 2001: Start December 2003: 180000 articles July2004:302073 articles Touchgraph –visual representation –Graph: entities and ties between them. –Dynamic: the nodes repel each other and the links limit the repulsion
