Online labor markets, such as Amazon's Mechanical Turk, have been used to crowdsource simple, short tasks like image labeling and transcription. However, expert knowledge is often lacking in such markets, making it impossible to complete certain classes of tasks. In this work we introduce an alternative mechanism for crowdsourcing tasks that require specialized knowledge or skill: communitysourcing --- the use of physical kiosks to elicit work from specific populations. We investigate the… 
Frenzy: A Platform for Friendsourcing
TLDR
F Frenzy helps people who are closely connected in a community complete crowdsourcing tasks on a platform that affords more user control and freedom than traditional crowdsourcing platforms.
Quality Assurance Strategies in Microtask Crowdsourcing
TLDR
This work conducted the most extensive literature review analysis of quality attributes, assessment and assurance techniques ever done in the area of microtasking and crowdsourcing in general.
A Social Network Engaged Crowdsourcing Framework for Expert Tasks
TLDR
A social network engaged crowdsourcing framework is proposed and the preliminary study is conducted to explore its ability in performing the tasks with the need of domain-specific skills and knowledge.
Facilitating Collocated Crowdsourcing on Situated Displays
TLDR
This work presents a generic crowdsourcing platform that supports situated teamwork and provides experiences from a laboratory study that focused on comparing traditional online crowdsourcing to situated team-based crowdsourcing.

TLDR
A network of crowdsourcing marketplaces is envisioned for efficient knowledge-intensive crowdsourcing and engagement of massive and diverse participants across different marketplaces and indicates that conducting crowdsourcing tasks in a network of audiences results in higher customer satisfaction than doing that in isolated markets.
Passerby Crowdsourcing
TLDR
This study dives into people's personal spaces by projecting task images on the floor, thereby allowing the passersby to effortlessly access tasks while walking and explores a machine-learning approach to select only the intended results and manage the data quality.
Quality Control in Crowdsourcing
TLDR
This survey derives a quality model for crowdsourcing tasks, identifies the methods and techniques that can be used to assess the attributes of the model, and the actions and strategies that help prevent and mitigate quality problems.
A Survey of General-Purpose Crowdsourcing Techniques
TLDR
An overall picture of the current state of the art techniques in general-purpose crowdsourcing is offered and a real scenario on how the different techniques are used in implementing a location-based crowdsourcing platform, gMission is presented.

Crowdsourcing user studies with Mechanical Turk
TLDR
Although micro-task markets have great potential for rapidly collecting user measurements at low costs, it is found that special care is needed in formulating tasks in order to harness the capabilities of the approach.
Who are the crowdworkers?: shifting demographics in mechanical turk
TLDR
How the worker population has changed over time is described, shifting from a primarily moderate-income, U.S. based workforce towards an increasingly international group with a significant population of young, well-educated Indian workers.
Crowds in two seconds: enabling realtime crowd-powered interfaces
TLDR
This paper develops techniques that recruit synchronous crowds in two seconds and use them to execute complex search tasks in ten seconds, and offers empirically derived guidelines for a retainer system that is low-cost and produces on-demand crowds inTwo seconds.

The jabberwocky programming environment for structured social computing
TLDR
It is shown that the unique properties of Dormouse enable elegant programming models for complex and useful problems, and two such frameworks are proposed: ManReduce, a framework for combining human and machine computation into an intuitive parallel data flow that goes beyond existing frameworks in several important ways, such as enabling functions on arbitrary communication graphs between human andMachine clusters.

Two peers are better than one: aggregating peer reviews for computing assignments is surprisingly accurate
TLDR
An online review system for beginning computer programming students is developed that finds that peer reviews are accurate compared to an accepted evaluation standard, that students prefer reviews from other students with less experience than themselves, and that participating in a peer review process results in better learning outcomes.
