You are in need of taking a serious decision? Do you have more than one person who has an opinion about the issue you are discussing? Do you wish to engage your friends or whoever is a stakeholder in an open, structured, democratic deliberation to take together the more wise decision?
Idea Prism was designed to harness the collective intelligence and collective wisdom of groups. It equips anyone with the ability to launch a virtual dialogue. All you need is to give your dialogue a name, enter a smart triggering question to stimulate the discussion, and invite others to participate. Members of your dialogue may contribute ideas in the form of single-sentence statements, and subsequently add one or two paragraphs as clarification. They can also shoot short videos right from their device and upload a lively clarification to the cloud for others to consider. The App allows participants to ask questions, request further clarifications, choose ideas according to perceived importance, desirability, feasibility etc. Furthermore, it applies interpretative structural modeling to support participants to compare their ideas according to the influence they exert on each other and thus collectively construct influence maps. More importantly, using patent-pending parallel interpretative structural modeling algorithms, it allows individual maps of ideas to be overlaid mathematically thus harnessing collective wisdom.
The first version of the App allows one to collect and view all ideas on an issue, export, email, print and/or share them in multiple environments. Future versions will integrate complex systems and mathematical algorithms to enable wisdom crunching.
The launching of Idea Prism v1 signals a revolution in communication. Future versions will make it the first App that will make the science of complex systems and third-phase science accessible to people. Our research is scientifically grounded on Dialogic Design Science.
