Inference Aided Reinforcement Learning for Incentive Mechanism Design in Crowdsourcing [article]

Zehong Hu, Yitao Liang, Yang Liu, Jie Zhang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose a novel inference aided reinforcement mechanism that learns to incentivize high-quality data sequentially and requires no such prior assumptions.  ...  Incentive mechanisms for crowdsourcing are designed to incentivize financially self-interested workers to generate and report high-quality labels.  ...  The authors also thank Anxiang Zeng from Alibaba Group for valuable discussions.  ...

Incentivizing an Unknown Crowd [article]

Jing Dong, Shuai Li, Baoxiang Wang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Motivated by the common strategic activities in crowdsourcing labeling, we study the problem of sequential eliciting information without verification (EIWV) for workers with a heterogeneous and unknown  ...  We propose a reinforcement learning-based approach that is effective against a wide range of settings including potential irrationality and collusion among workers.  ...  In this paper, we focus on the modeling and empirical performance of EIWV and propose a reinforcement learning approach to design an adaptive and effective incentive mechanism.  ...

A Technical Survey on Statistical Modelling and Design Methods for Crowdsourcing Quality Control [article]

Yuan Jin and Mark Carman and Ye Zhu and Yong Xiang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
However, it is also known to result in large variance in the quality of recorded responses which often cannot be directly used for training machine learning systems.  ...  Such work is referred to as the quality control for crowdsourcing. Past quality control research can be divided into two major branches: quality control mechanism design and statistical models.  ...  Incentive Mechanisms Based on Monetary Payment Monetary payments in crowdsourcing involve two types: base payments and bonus payments.  ...

Beyond monetary incentives: experiments in paid microtask contests modelled as continuous-time markov chains [article]

Oluwaseyi Feyisetan, Elena Simperl
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Our analysis focuses on a particular type of incentive, contests, as a means to apply crowdsourcing in near-real-time scenarios, in which requesters need labels quickly.  ...  Overall, the experiments shed light on possible design improvements of paid microtasks platforms to boost task performance and speed, and make the overall experience more fair and interesting for crowd  ...  We would also like to acknowledge Karen Hovsepian for all the helpful conversations.  ...

Designing Organizations for Dynamic Capabilities

Teppo Felin, Thomas C. Powell
2016 California Management Review  
We examine new design principles -such as polyarchy, social proofs, and new forms of open organization -that allow organizations to build dynamic capabilities for sustained innovation in dynamic environments  ...  We focus on the power of organizational design, showing how managers can harness new organizational forms to build a capacity for sensing, shaping and seizing opportunities.  ...  There are other streams of research on capabilities -for example, capabilities for product development.  ...

An interdisciplinary perspective on gamification: Mechanics, psychological mediators and outcomes

Miralem Helmefalk
2019 International Journal of Serious Games  
Furthermore, this research contributes to this rather eclectic domain, presenting a more categorized view in showing domain-specific mechanics and how these can be employed for empirical testing.  ...  These are mechanics, mental mediators and desired outcomes.  ...  To illustrate the model, for example in educational learning settings, there are mechanics that fit more or less together in these contexts (see table 1 for inspiration).  ...
