The Nanquanu Institute

Collective Intelligence systems


Nanquanu does not start from scratch. The first systems Nanquanu focuses on, have reached the stage of well thought-through project descriptions, and have been bounced back and forth between several professionals, or they are (far) beyond that stage. One of these systems, the evolutionary inspired problem solving system, is even in an advanced degree of development, and the result of years of research and development by one of Nanquanu’s staff members in previous positions. On request, we will send you more information about the projects.

Candidates for systems to be (further) developed by Nanquanu include:
A pitfall system: share pitfalls and solutions in an unprecedentedly effective and inspiring way.
A foreign language learning system: learn language hyper-efficiently.
An evolutionary theory inspired problem solving system: optimises problem solving strategies for groups by using principles from evolutionary theory and crowd sourcing Typically, Colis developed by Nanquanu are partially or fully Internet-based.


Examples of modern Coli-systems are Wikipedia, Twitter and Google Docs. Coli is present whenever the intelligence of a human group is greater than the sum of the members’ intelligences. A Coli-system fosters the Coli of a group in a certain respect. These systems are as old as humanity. However, modern Coli-systems use the ubiquitous presence of the Internet, revolutionising Coli-system design. Using the Internet allows forms of Coli that were impossible before. For example, Wikipedia allows encyclopedic information to be developed and kept up-to-date at an unprecedented rate, by allowing anyone in the World to edit the encyclopedia, while, with its cleverly designed organisational structure, it still is qualitatively on par with premium encyclopaedias such as the Encyclopædia Britannica.
