Approval Voting and Incentives in Crowdsourcing [article]

Nihar B. Shah, Dengyong Zhou, Yuval Peres
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we address these issues by introducing approval voting to utilize the expertise of workers who have partial knowledge of the true answer, and coupling it with a ("strictly proper") incentive-compatible  ...  The quality of crowdsourced labels is, however, adversely affected by three factors: (1) the workers are not experts; (2) the incentives of the workers are not aligned with those of the requesters; and  ...  The work of the first author was supported in part by a Microsoft Research PhD fellowship.

Proposing a system to support crowdsourcing

Manuela Aparicio, Carlos J. Costa, Andrew Simoes Braga
2012 Proceedings of the Workshop on Open Source and Design of Communication - OSDOC '12  
In this paper, a conceptual framework is proposed, supported in the literature review, derived by identifying the main concepts related to crowdsourcing, as well as ways of improving group participation  ...  We also propose a software solution that may be used to support the crowdsourcing process. This software solution is inspired by the conceptual framework.  ...  In this framework we identify the participants (who), the tasks (what), motivations and incentives (why) and the ways in which tasks are accomplished (how).  ...

How to Manage Crowdsourcing Platforms Effectively?

Ivo Blohm, Shkodran Zogaj, Ulrich Bretschneider, Jan Marco Leimeister
2017 California Management Review  
To profit from crowdsourcing, organizations can engage in four different approaches: microtasking, information pooling, broadcast search, and open collaboration.  ...  We investigate the effectiveness of these governance mechanisms in 19 case studies and recommend specific configurations of these mechanisms for each of the four crowdsourcing approaches.  ...  In contrast, for tasks that utilize voting the value from crowdsourcing is derived from the aggregated entirety of contributions. Individual votes have minimal value.  ...

Managing the Crowd: A Literature Review of Empirical Studies on Internal Crowdsourcing [chapter]

Jakob Pohlisch
2020 Business Rule-Oriented Conceptual Modeling  
AbstractThe phenomenon of crowdsourcing is increasingly being addressed in academic literature.  ...  Companies utilize crowdsourcing to search for solutions to internal problems outside of the companies' boundaries, accessing the vast and diverse knowledge and creativity of people all over the world.  ...  This does not simply mean that management approves the project plan and the budget for the implementation of a crowdsourcing project.  ...

Iterative Learning for K-Approval Votes in Crowdsourcing Systems

Joonyoung Kim, Donghyeon Lee, Kyomin Jung
2021 Applied Sciences  
In this paper, we propose a novel and efficient iterative algorithm to infer correct answers for a K-approval voting, which can be directly applied to real-world crowdsourcing systems.  ...  In eliciting the wisdom of crowds, many web-based crowdsourcing platforms have encouraged workers to select top-K alternatives rather than just one choice, which is called "K-approval voting".  ...  For real crowdsourcing examples, two tasks described in Figures 1 and 2 are real-world crowdsourcing examples of K-approval voting.  ...
