Facilitating Large-Scale Creativity


How can large groups of people realize their full creative potential during ideation sessions? This project uses the latest developments in crowdsourcing, information visualization, and data mining in order to facilitate synchronous, large-scale, online creative collaborations. This research will result in a flexible system that facilitates exploration and decision making in large groups, while adaptively supporting individual ideators in their creative processes.
