I am sending to you the link to an exclusive interview we had with Pierre LÚvy, done by Sandra ┴lvaro: IEML: A Project for a New Humanism. An interview with Pierre LÚvy<http://blogs.cccb.org/lab/en/article_ieml-projecte-per-a-un-nou-humanisme-entrevista-a-pierre-levy/> (LINK: http://blogs.cccb.org/lab/en/article_ieml-projecte-per-a-un-nou-humanisme-entrevista-a-pierre-levy/)
Pierre LÚvy<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_L%C3%A9vy> is a philosopher and a pioneer in the study of the impact of the Internet on human knowledge and culture. In Collective Intelligence. Mankind's Emerging World in Cyberspace<http://inteligenciacolectiva.bvsalud.org/public/documents/pdf/es/inteligenciaColectiva.pdf>, published in French in 1994 (English translation in 1999), he describes a kind of collective intelligence that extends everywhere and is constantly evaluated and coordinated in real time, a collective human intelligence, augmented by new information technologies and the Internet. Since then, he has been working on a major undertaking: the creation of IEML (Information Economy Meta Language), a tool for the augmentation of collective intelligence by means of the algorithm medium. IEML, which already has its own grammar<http://pierrelevyblog.com/category/article-pdf/>, is a metalanguage that includes the semantic dimension, making it computable. This in turn allows a reflexive representation of collective intelligence processes.
In the book Semantic Sphere I. Computation, Cognition, and Information Economy<http://pierrelevyblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/00-0-0-semantic-sphere-1.pdf>, Pierre LÚvy describes IEML as a new tool that works with the ocean of data of participatory digital memory, which is common to all humanity, and systematically turns it into knowledge. A system for encoding meaning that adds transparency, interoperability and computability to the operations that take place in digital memory.
By formalising meaning, this metalanguage adds a human dimension to the analysis and exploitation of the data deluge that is the backdrop of our lives in the digital society. And it also offers a new standard for the human sciences with the potential to accommodate maximum diversity and interoperability.
Hope you like it.
