Our work is the first to address the problem of optimal task sequencing for online, heterogeneous, time-constrained macrotasks. ... Expert crowdsourcing involves macrotasks, like document writing, product design, or web development, which take more time than typical binary microtasks, require expert skills, assume varying degrees of ... We address in our work the problem of optimal task sequencing for online, heterogeneous, time-constrained, macrotasks. ...arXiv:1601.04038v1 fatcat:emzpjzdzhzfntkjnm6ik7ksfzu
., CrowdFlower, Upwork) to identify how hundreds of engineers and tens of million dollars are invested in various crowdsourcing solutions. ... Several academic researchers from diverse areas ranging from the social sciences to computer science have embraced crowdsourcing as a research area, resulting in algorithms and systems that improve crowd ... One participant was particularly pessimistic about multistep workflows, explaining "In my experience, if you need multiple steps of crowdsourcing, it's almost always more productive to go back and do a ...doi:10.1561/1900000044 fatcat:rva7dinutnbnlj2hvm4j2hmhge
This paper explores this question through in-depth case studies of 22 workers across six workflow-based crowd teams, each pursuing a complex and interdependent web development goal. ... Our results indicate that workflows served as useful coordination artifacts, but in many cases critically inhibited crowd workers from pursuing realtime adaptations to their work plans. ... This work was supported by the National Science Foundation (award IIS-1351131), DARPA, the Stanford Cyber Initiative, the Stanford Institute for Research in the Social Sciences, and a Stanford Interdisciplinary ...doi:10.1145/3134724 fatcat:w5s2g6jxffeulgzmintm4ub3oq
The aim of this document is to present a working definition of open social scholarship through the aggregation and summation of critical resources in the field. ... The bibliography builds on the knowledge creation principles outlined in previous research by broadening the focus beyond conventional academic spaces and reinvigorating central, defining themes with recently ... Prism is designed to assist with projects that blend two approaches to crowdsourcing: microtasking and macrotasking. ...doi:10.5334/kula.58 fatcat:a56cxxnn55dqndfmcesccihy2q
Following this, Chapter 3 explores the ways in which some crowdsourcing projects encourage deeper engagement with history or science, and the role of communities of practice in citizen history. ... Chapter 1 provides an overview of over 400 digital history projects aimed at engaging the public or collecting, creating or enhancing records about historical materials for scholarly and general audiences ... It also found that microtasks took more time combined than the equivalent macrotask. ...doi:10.21954/ou.ro.0000b1cf fatcat:gizqopf7snhs5fx7lj2irqny2y
