Dynamically Switching between Synergistic Workflows for Crowdsourcing

Christopher Lin, Mausam Mausam, Daniel Weld
We show that alternative workflows can compose synergistically to yield much higher quality output. We formalize the insight with a novel probabilistic graphical model.  ...  Surprisingly, this seemingly natural design paradigm does not achieve the full potential of crowdsourcing. In particular, using a single workflow (even the best) to accomplish a task is suboptimal.  ...  We thank Trey Smith for making ZMDP available and Jacob Whitehill for making the software for GLAD available.  ...

Collective hybrid intelligence: towards a conceptual framework

Morteza Moradi, Mohammad Moradi, Farhad Bayat, Adel Nadjaran Toosi
2019 International Journal of Crowd Science  
Findings The paper describes the conceptual architecture, workflow and schematic representation of a new hybrid computing concept.  ...  Instead, to compensate for the weakness of machines in some (mostly cognitive) tasks, the idea of putting human in the loop has been introduced and widely accepted.  ...  Specifically, some mechanisms are required for distributed task management, result aggregation, integration and validation. The general workflow of such a system can be described as follows.  ...

2014 Nature Biotechnology  
Thus, there is a need for new methods to predict compound synergy from molecular profiles of single compound activity, as well as for assays designed to objectively and systematically evaluate the accuracy  ...  The goal of combination therapy is thus to attain a synergistic or at least an additive yet complementary effect. Most approaches to identify synergistic compound pairs are still exploratory 13, 14 .  ...  This provides a practical approach to implement multimethod integration as a crowdsourcing activity.  ...
