Greg Little: Human computation algorithms

Speaker: Greg Little

When: noon, March 16 Wednesday
Where: GHC 6501

Abstract:
Research on human computation, crowdsourcing and outsourcing have been
constantly growing in the last decade. However, they are far from being
completely integrated in our lives. What needs to happen before they are?
What will happen when these new paradigms have become pervasive? This talk
begins by discussing tools and experiments I have worked on in this area
(including TurKit), and ends with a discussion of the current state of
human computation.
