Crowdsourcing and human computation multidisciplinary workshop

The crowdsourcing and human computation multidisciplinary workshop organized by the CNRS MASTODONS* challenge.

Crowdsourcing systems are becoming very popular in a variety of domains and for a wide range of online tasks. Common crowdsourcing scenarios include data gathering (asking volunteers to tag a picture or a video), document editing (as in Wikipedia), opinion solicitation (asking foodies to provide a summary of their experience at a restaurant), and collaborative intelligence (asking residents to match old city maps). Human computation addresses the design or analysis of information processing systems in which human groups participate as computational elements. Both fields are concerned with how people can be involved in solving complex tasks that go beyond the capabilities of current algorithms and with the emergence of collective intelligence. Research in these domains is interdisciplinary and includes efforts in human computer interaction, cognitive psychology, economics, data bases, information retrieval, artificial intelligence, etc.
The purpose of this one-day interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields to share their experience and thoughts about the challenges and opportunities of doing (or not!) research on crowdsourcing and human computation.
