Is social an opposition to algorithmic or systematic?

Social trend observed in networking and business activity has several roots. First it is a challenge for many of us to share our experience and productivity and become famous or noticed for at least fifteen minutes. Second - social or crowd creativity is a process of merging efforts and distributed resources in order to produce new quality, new paradigms and new products. An important contribution of social power is software developed and hosted by volunteers and distributed on word-of-mouth recommendation.
During the workshop we want to face social contribution to business processes taking into account possible benefits and risk factors. How far can business relay on social input? What are the limits or what are the areas where introducing crowdsourced parts may increase overall risk value to unacceptable level?

Aims and scope

During SAIBS Workshop we want to focus on computational and optimization issues that can be supported by crowd input or social intelligence. We will try to answer the question how far and on which fields business may benefit from utilizing social contribution. And finally, we will discuss problems how computer systems may understand social behaviour (sometimes named: market) and support humans in making decisions, i.e. in automatic trading.
Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
• Business process optimization algorithms
• Social issues in software design
• Software engineering issues in business support
• Social recommender systems
• Crowdsourcing and crowdfounding
• Automatic trading systems
• Optimization algorithms in trade support
• Business models based on mobile applications
