A Brief Perspective on Microtask Crowdsourcing Workflows for Interface Design

Mengyao Zhao, Andre van der Hoek
2015 2015 IEEE/ACM 2nd International Workshop on CrowdSourcing in Software Engineering  
In order to make microtask crowdsourcing more supportive for interface design, we need a workflow that can help task owners to break down interface design tasks more easily.  ...  User interface design, as a crucial part of software design, is complex. Current microtask crowdsourcing workflows do not support its complexity well.  ...  These characteristics make microtask crowdsourcing a less effective workflow for interface design in two ways. First, interface design requires iterations.  ...

Collaboratively crowdsourcing workflows with turkomatic

Anand Kulkarni, Matthew Can, Björn Hartmann
2012 Proceedings of the ACM 2012 conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work - CSCW '12  
Preparing complex jobs for crowdsourcing marketplaces requires careful attention to workflow design, the process of decomposing jobs into multiple tasks, which are solved by multiple workers.  ...  Can the crowd help design such workflows? This paper presents Turkomatic, a tool that recruits crowd workers to aid requesters in planning and solving complex jobs.  ...  Many problems on markets like Amazon Mechanical Turk are solved as a series of microtasks: narrowly focused, brief tasks designed to be completed in a few minutes, such as labeling an image or checking  ...

2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '11  
On today's human computation systems, designing tasks and workflows is a difficult and labor-intensive process. Can workers from the crowd be used to help plan workflows?  ...  We explore this question with Turkomatic, a new interface to microwork platforms that uses crowd workers to help plan workflows for complex tasks.  ...  Turkomatic is a crowdsourcing interface that consults the crowd to design and execute workflows based on user requests.  ...
