The multiple faces of social intelligence design

Humberto Cavallin • Renate Fruchter • Toyoaki Nishida


The articles included in this special issue of AI and Society, take on the challenge posed by these authors, tackling this subject of study through a conceptual framework that connects the relationship between the individual and the interactive environment by means of social mediation. The theoretical ground to these conceptualizations comes from the paradigm of social intelligence design (SID) as defined by Nishida that it is explained by Nijholt et al. as ‘‘the necessary ability for people to relate to understand and interact effectively with others’’ and their particular concern to understand ‘‘how Social Intelligence is mediated through the use of emerging information and communication technologies’’ (2009, p. 2). This paradigm therefore involves the development of systematic approaches concerning design and implementation of systems and environments, ranging from team-based collaboration systems that facilitate common ground building, goaloriented interactions among participants, to communitycentered systems that support large scale online dialog and instructional design.
