Bionic Systems: We Can Make Participants Faster...Stronger...Better

You Mon Tsang, CEO and Founder, Boxxet

Date: Wednesday, March 08
Time: 4:20pm - 5:05pm
Location: Elizabeth Ballroom C

Good news: a new wave of innovative social web applications is coming to market. Bad news: each new application needs yet another slice of the community's attention and participation So how will social web applications survive when the community is being asked to give to so many? This conversation will focus on amplifying participation through the use of bionic systems. A bionic system is an important evolution of social web applications, whereby the machine amplifies the input, insight and opinions of participants. Such a "bionic" system would allow the creation of great value from either (1) a smaller set of participants or (2) a large set of participants unable (or unwilling) to do much. Join the presenter as he discusses bionic systems created at his two companies, Biz360 and Boxxet, as well as best practices for creating bionic systems.
