About the Seminar

The CMU Crowdsourcing Lunch Seminar series is organized for researchers from diverse perspectives to share their work, receive feedback, and spur discussion on topics related to crowdsourcing. We invite speakers from academia, industry, and entrepreneurship with a broad range of backgrounds and expertise to encourage both breadth and depth in our discussion of the evolving field. Past topics have included the use of crowdsourcing on new technology platforms, scientific problem solving with crowds, crowd ideation/design generation, modeling crowd worker behavior, encouraging crowd worker collaboration, and ethical or societal implications of crowd work. We are always interested in hearing about new ideas and developments in the field!

If you're interested in sharing your work at one of the lunches (or nominating somebody else), please contact our coordinator Felicia Ng (fng@cs.cmu.edu).
