Subconscious Social Computational Intelligence

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 246)


The success of social network Web services mediating social interactions, as well as the increasing observation capabilities of human interactions in real life, has prompted the emergence of new computational paradigms, namely social computing, computational social science, and social intelligence. Subconscious social intelligence appears when the social network service is able to provide solutions, generated by a hidden intelligent layer, to problems posed by the social player. This paper discusses some features of subconscious social intelligence and ensuing challenges for machine learning systems implementing the hidden intelligent layer.
