In the last years, peer production systems (e.g., Wikipedia, Wikidata) have emerged that involve a large number of people in problem-solving processes. Although the role of humans in such processes is essential, we want to show to what extent human and machine intelligence are combined to realize the complex tasks in these peer production systems. Previous research has investigated the process of vandalism control in Wikipedia or the translation of social norms into algorithmic mechanisms defined by software functions and bots. From the discussion of these works, we infer the concept of human-machine collaboration and determine initial design parameters that allow us to transfer our findings to other application areas. We present, thus, the first results of our research on human-machine collaboration in the field of ideation. We introduce Interactive Concept Validation (ICV) as an approach that enables ideators to disambiguate terms used in their ideas. Furthermore, we show that our approach allows for a better understanding of the impact of creativity-enhancing interventions in the ideation process. We conclude this talk with an outlook on future research and reflect on the broader impact of our research.




Claudia Müller-Birn is the head of the research group Human-Centered Computing (HCC.lab) at the Institute of Computer Science at the Freie Universität Berlin. Before her appointment at FU Berlin, she undertook a post-doc at the Carnegie Mellon University, based on a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. Her interdisciplinary research advances the fields of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Social Computing. She is especially interested in investigating human-machine collaboration in which the collective intelligence of humans intertwines with machine intelligence. Her research entails both an empirical and an engineering dimension. The objective is, on the one hand, to advance our understanding of the functioning of complex socio-technical peer production systems that involve human-machine collaboration and on the other hand, to contribute to a value-based socio-technical systems design that fulfills the specific needs of an application area, such as in ideation, and visualization. Besides, Claudia advocates the use and development of open source software, the principles of open science in her research work, and the open access to scholarly knowledge.
