Collective revelation

Sharad Goel, Daniel M. Reeves, David M. Pennock
2009 Proceedings of the tenth ACM conference on Electronic commerce - EC '09  
Furthermore, we introduce a general technique for constructing budget-balanced mechanisms-where no net payments are made to participants-that applies both to collective revelation and to past peer-prediction  ...  Our mechanism of collective revelation, however, is the first to simultaneously achieve all three.  ...  These results together establish the basic collective revelation mechanism, which is incentive compatible, information weighted, and self-verifying.  ...

Collective Decision Making in Rural Japan

The prediction of the model fails in this case. Only corporate resources are involved, and thus, unanimity is predicted. But a vote occurred.  ...  Practically forced into self-sufficient subsistence economy in small villages, and bearing collective responsibility for the annual payment of their rice tax, the individual was submerged in an isolated  ...  The messenger is sometimes blamed for the message he brings; "Although the post of headman is an honor and a mark of general confidence, it is generally assumed with real reluctance.  ...

Moreover, he thanks Gianluigi Greco for his recent contribution to the weighted extension, and Alfredo Mazzitelli for his valuable work in designing and implementing the tools for experiments.  ...  These 18 people are providing a truly valuable service to readers, to authors, and to reviewers.  ...  Predictability is a great goal, but I know you also work a lot on making self-tuning storage systems, and in my experience, self-tuning systems tend not to be so predictable because they change their behavior  ...

Data Collection and Wireless Communication in Internet of Things (IoT) Using Economic Analysis and Pricing Models: A Survey [article]

Nguyen Cong Luong, Dinh Thai Hoang, Ping Wang, Dusit Niyato, Dong In Kim, Zhu Han
2016 arXiv   pre-print
This paper provides a state-of-the-art literature review on economic analysis and pricing models for data collection and wireless communication in Internet of Things (IoT).  ...  For long service time and low maintenance cost, WSNs require adaptive and robust designs to address many issues, e.g., data collection, topology formation, packet forwarding, resource and power optimization  ...  Also, the proposed solution did not provide any incentive mechanism for the M2M applications to report their truthful valuation.  ...

"Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" - A Betting Platform for Better Prediction

Fang Fang, Maxwell Stinchcombe, Andrew Whinston
2007 Review of Network Economics  
We designed a platform with a betting mechanism for eliciting costly, dispersed information of different quality.  ...  Our objective is to elicit both dispersed information and the precision of the information so as to efficiently weight dispersed information to produce reliable forecasts.  ...  A betting mechanism that can implement the directly revealing strategy is called a direct revelation betting mechanism.  ...

Bayesian markets to elicit private information

Aurélien Baillon
2017 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
In Bayesian markets, people can be rewarded for telling the truth even when the truth is not verifiable.  ...  When collecting personal data such as opinions and self-assessed measurements, objective verification often is conceptually or practically impossible.  ...  Since the 1980s, various Bayesian revelation mechanisms have been proposed (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) . Some mechanisms were especially designed for data collection methods such as surveys.  ...

A Reputation-Based Contract for Repeated Crowdsensing with Costly Verification [article]

Donya G. Dobakhshari, Parinaz Naghizadeh, Mingyan Liu, Vijay Gupta
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Since both the effort and observation are private information for the sensor, a naive payment scheme which compensates the sensor based only on his self-reported values will lead to both shirking and falsification  ...  We study a setup in which a system operator hires a sensor to exert costly effort to collect accurate measurements of a value of interest over time.  ...  Thus, while the operator can verify the sensor at each stage and through appropriate penalties ensure truthful revelation by the sensors, this approach may not, in general, be optimal for the operator  ...
