Computer Simulations Shed Light on Online Collaborations

A new research study to be published in September suggests a novel approach to designing computer systems that facilitate collaboration in large groups. The research leverages computer simulations of large “socio-technical” systems, such as social networks and wiki communities, to investigate how technology helps people collaborate effectively. This information can then be…
