Lucas B. L. de Souza, Eduardo C. Campos, Marcelo de A. Maia
2014 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Program Comprehension - ICPC 2014  
We present an approach that makes use of "crowd knowledge" available in SO to recommend information that can assist developers in their activities.  ...  The information available on this type of service is also known as "crowd knowledge" and currently is one important trend in supporting activities related to software development and maintenance.  ...  CONCLUSIONS We presented a novel approach to leverage the Q&A crowd knowledge. This strategy recommends a ranked list of pairs of questions/answers from SO.  ...

QUICKAR: automatic query reformulation for concept location using crowdsourced knowledge

Mohammad Masudur Rahman, Chanchal K. Roy
2016 Proceedings of the 31st IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering - ASE 2016  
During maintenance, software developers deal with numerous change requests made by the users of a software system.  ...  Studies show that the developers find it challenging to select appropriate search terms from a change request during concept location.  ...  One way to assist the developers in this regard is to automatically suggest helpful reformulations for the initially executed query.  ...

Applying human computation mechanisms to information retrieval

Christopher G. Harris, Padmini Srinivasan
2012 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
These two human computation mechanisms assist with tasks that cannot be solved by computers alone.  ...  Using an IR model, we apply criteria to determine the suitability of these crowdsourcing and GWAP mechanisms to each step of the model.  ...  Likewise, the configuration of the retrieval system (Step 5) requires specialized knowledge of IR systems, such as the ability to tune and configure parameters and develop a search strategy.  ...

Multi-Objective Crowd Worker Selection in Crowdsourced Testing

Qiang Cui, Song Wang, Junjie Wang, Yuanzhe Hu, Qing Wang, Mingshu Li
2017 Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
Crowdsourced testing is an emerging trend in software testing, which relies on crowd workers to accomplish test tasks.  ...  For a specific test task, not all crowd workers are qualified to perform it, and different test tasks require crowd workers to have different experiences, domain knowledge, etc.  ...  We would like to thank the testers in Baidu for their great efforts in supporting this work.  ...

Toward Collaborative Software Engineering Leveraging the Crowd [chapter]

Benjamin Satzger, Rostyslav Zabolotnyi, Schahram Dustdar, Stefan Wild, Martin Gaedke, Steffen Göbel, Tobias Nestler
2014 Economics-Driven Software Architecture  
The professional development of software requires technology expertise and knowledge about the application domain, and must be inexpensive and agile to bring the company in a strong position.  ...  As technologies evolve constantly and new trends appear in very short time frames, the knowledge and competence of development teams have to be kept up to date accordingly.  ...  Lacking domain knowledge of software developers who are new to an area is a major source of misunderstandings and bugs in a traditional development and might be more pronounced in a crowd-sourced development  ...

Steven Hoornaert, Michel Ballings, Edward C. Malthouse, Dirk Van den Poel
2017 The Journal of product innovation management  
This study draws from prior research to operationalize variables corresponding to the 3Cs and develops a new measure to quantify an idea's distinctiveness.  ...  These information sources differ in their time of availability (content/contributor information is available immediately; crowd feedback accumulates over time) and in the extent to which they comprise  ...  To our knowledge, our study is the first to evaluate the predictive capacity that can be gained from waiting for the feedback of the crowd as opposed to processing ideas in real time, and to benchmark  ...

Leveraging Crowd Knowledge for Software Comprehension and Development

L. Ponzanelli, A. Bacchelli, M. Lanza
2013 2013 17th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
We present an integrated and largely automated approach to assist programmers who want to leverage the crowd knowledge of Q&A services.  ...  Programmers tap into this crowd knowledge through web browsers.  ...  To this aim, we implemented an annotation engine to let developers put annotations in the code. We want to allow developers to collaborate by means of the crowd knowledge itself.  ...
