Mechanism Design for Time Critical and Cost Critical Task Execution via Crowdsourcing [article]

Swaprava Nath and Pankaj Dayama and Dinesh Garg and Y. Narahari and James Zou
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We study this mechanism design problem under two natural resource optimization settings: (1) cost critical tasks, where the planner's goal is to minimize the total cost, and (2) time critical tasks, where  ...  We characterize the approximate versions of the desirable properties in cost critical and time critical domain.  ...  Cost Critical Tasks In this section, we design crowdsourcing mechanisms for the atomic tasks where the planner's objective is to minimize total cost of executing the task.  ...

Crowdsourcing: Global search and the twisted roles of consumers and producers

Robert M. Bauer, Thomas Gegenhuber
2015 Organization  
Crowdsourcing as sourcing by means of 'global search' yields four types of values for sourcing actors: creative expertise, critical items, execution capacity, and bargaining power.  ...  Finally, we point to crowdsourcing as a spectacle deploying working consumers' and consuming producers' look and feel to revamp traditional consumer and producer roles.  ...  We sincerely thank Yiannis Gabriel, Marek Korczynski, and Kerstin Rieder for their considerate guidance; three anonymous reviewers for supportive challenges; the 'Organizations and their Consumers' stream  ...
