Hello, Dr. Alag,

We are migrating our website from Plumtree and Domino to IBM Workplace Websphere Content Management. Our next step will be to incorporate portlets which can be customized according to the interests of the person visiting the website. Can collective intelligence be used to configure the portlets?

Helana,

The scenario you are talking about sounds more like "personalization" of the site. Still i think there are are few ways you can apply the collective intelligence algorithms, depending on the actual business need:

- If you like portlet "X" and "Y", you may also like portlet "Z" (recommendation engine based on other user's selection of similar portlets)
- User tagging the portlets to categorize them. System presenting Most popular/most used portlet statistics to further help the recommendation. Or user recommending friends/colleagues a useful portlet.

Helana,

To answer your question on whether collective intelligence can be applied to configuring portlets by a user.

The answer is yes! You can leverage collective intelligence in a number of different ways:
Simple:
a. Based on the number of users who have used certain portlets create a list of top used portlets and offer it to your user
b. Allow users to rate, comment, recommend portlets to other users

Advanced:
c. Build a recommendation engine that is similar to "people who have used this portlet have also used the following portlets ..."
d. Recommend to a user other portlets based on the portlets that the user is currently using

thanks
Satnam
