Collective Minds and Rich Data in Smart Cities

Published on

A story about a survey research uses crowdsourcing method to collect a large amount of reliable and rich data for project prioritisation and implementation in its smart city initiative. The sharing provides you with steps and modifications of the methodology for your own projects that gain lots of rewards. The gains are lower costs, creative, nimble and replicable design, and flexible and collaborative deployment strategies.

  6. 6. Key considerations: costs, design, deployment mechanisms • Innovative and multi-disciplinary approach • Cheaper and more nimble method • Utilise formal channels • Sponsoring and sharing of responsibilities (financial and non-financial contributions) • Resource commitment upfront and ongoing • High chance for good turn-out (many respondents) 6 From facts to formation
  7. 7. Literature: • Open innovation (citizens participation) for solutions and ideas to partners (ICT & biz strategy) (Seltzer & Mahmoudi, 2012) • Crowdsourcing rooted from democratic principle: every individuals possesses some knowledge or talent that some other individual will find valuable (Howe, 2009) • “Wisdom of the crowd”… groups are remarkably intelligent and often smarter than the smartest people in them (Surowiecki, 2005) • Gathering widest possible number of views, expert or not, could result in new combinations of ideas that would yield unexpected and profoundly wise outcomes (Hwang, 1996) 7 Crowdsourcing-inspired method selected
  8. 8. • Pick the right model (collective intelligent/crowd wisdom; crowd creation, some combination, crowdfunding…) => combination • Pick the right crowd (cultivating, stewarding, sustaining, requiring interactive participation) => stakeholder mapping • Offer the right incentives (incentives work for specific audiences) => stakeholder mapping • KISS (understandable parts): rightly defining problem and well crafting call => sale pitch • The power of decider (decision maker(s)) is moral and persuasive, not absolute (Howe, 2009) 8 Crowdsourcing action rules
  9. 9. • Identify the stakeholders • Locate shared responsibilities & interests • Engage and sell the project to the stakeholders • Offer benefits and seek resources/help needed • Articulate outcomes and impacts for individuals and organisations => What the project can do for the crowd rather than what the crowd can do for the project 9 Stakeholders Mapping in CorkCitiEngage
