Title:  Towards a better understanding of Social Machines

Abstract:  The Web has allowed people to collaborate in ways that were not imagined a few decades ago. Communities driven by the most diverse objectives are created and evolve in different directions using different "Web tools". In this talk I'm going to describe the relations between cognition and the Web. More precisely, I will focus on the concept of "Social Machines", i.e., systems where humans puts their creative thinking and machines put their administrative capabilities in order to solve challenging problems that are hard from more traditional perspectives. Finally, I will describe the projects aimed to study this phenomena.
