What kinds of capability can be introduced to a problem solving in a social system with an implementation of information technologies? In order to establish an implementation theory of social information systems, the implementation processes are observed concerning social information systems, especially, interactions among intelligent distributed agents are formulated to describe the processes, and then simulations based on the models are employed for developing a collective intelligence engineering.
In the research, first, a cyber commons is considered to be so important commons in the Internet that, as a typical example of cyber commons, a viable encyclopedia of social informatics is developed in order to implement a distribution system of information and knowledge in a society.
Second, a social dilemma, a boundary emergence, and a group generation and re-formulation process are observed in our simulation concerning organizing information space, and also chaotic behaviors emerge in the
Third, researches in organizational intelligence are reviewed, and the Japanese way of management are discussed with respect to its properties. A simulator for organizational design is developed, employing our concept of operational organization.
Forth, personality and attitude changes of agent, as a member of an organization, are formulated to describe an organizational rigidity and re-organizing process, and as a result of simulations based on the model, a clique or an information boundary is observed.
Fifth, an evolution process in a production distribution information network of groceries is found, and an effectiveness of a brokerage inter-organizational structure is exploited from our model of an organizational intelligence.
These results of observations will be extended to develop a know how and a know why concerning an implementation of social information systems. The know how and the know why will support us to develop a scenario to adopt information systems in a society, and a theory of semantic generation in social information will be also developed in our future research.
