Title: Algorithmic Crowdsourcing: Current Status and Future Perspective
This talk gives a survey of crowdsourcing applications, with a focus on algorithmic solutions.
The search for missing Microsoft scientist is used first as a motivational example.
Fundamental issues in crowdsourcing, in particular, incentive mechanisms for paid crowdsourcing,
and algorithms and theory for crowdsourced problem-solving, are then reviewed.
Several applications of algorithmic crowdsourcing applications are discussed in detail,
with a focus on big data.
The talk also discusses several on-going projects on crowdsourcing at Temple University.
