Crowd-Powered Data Management Parameswaran, Aditya


The data management community has been historically (and perhaps myopically) focused on processing SQL queries on ever larger datasets : what does this have to do with crowdsourcing? This tutorial will convey how it helps to think of humans as relational data processors for the purpose of designing optimized crowd-powered algorithms and systems, in order to generate or process orders of magnitude more data at the same cost and same accuracy. The tutorial will also cover how the crowdsourcing work done by the data management community fits in with the other communities, its successes and failures, and open questions and potential opportunities for collaboration.
