Abstract


Despite the variety of human computation applications, there exist many common core research issues. How can we design mechanisms for querying human computers in such a way that incentivizes or encourages truthful responses? What are the techniques for aggregating noisy outputs from multiple human computers? How do we effectively assign tasks to human computers to match their particular expertise and interests? What are some programming paradigms for designing algorithms that effectively leverage the humans in the loop? How do we build human computation systems that involve the joint efforts of both machines and humans, trading off each of their particular strengths and weaknesses? Significant advances on such questions will likely need to draw many disciplines, including machine learning, mechanism and market design, information retrieval, decision-theoretic planning, optimization, human computer interaction, and others. e workshop recognizes the growing opportunity for AI to function as an enabling technology in human computation systems.
