and Walter Lasecki: Real-time Crowdsourcing Bigham, Jeff


Crowdsourcing makes it possible for systems to solve problems beyond the current reach of automation alone. However, traditional approaches to crowdsourcing have limited the scope of such systems to those that draw on human intelligence only through offline (non time-dependent) microtasks. This workshop will cover tools and techniques for quickly recruiting workers, routing them to tasks, and keeping them engaged for longer periods of time, so that tasks that require low-latency responses can benefit from human computation. Participants will learn the underlying theory, intuition behind approaches, and specific methods for integrating crowdsourcing into real-time systems in any domain.
