Abstract:

SIFT proposes the PARCEL technology to establish a knowledge economy for solving hard problems that require thousands of participants. PARCEL rewards participants with a combination of altruism, recognition, competition and monetary rewards. PARCEL provides a collaboration environment that integrates many existing open source and social networking tools to ensure efficient use of participant's time. Underneath the user interface, the PARCEL engine manages all the housekeeping tasks. Furthermore the PARCEL engine enables knowledge matching to aid the current problem by finding relevant past solutions and experts. PARCEL presents a human driven approach that focuses human effort on the problem solving. PARCEL contains innovative tools to inspire, aid collaboration and motivate people to solve problems beyond the scope of today's tools.
