Crowd sourcing is evolving as a distributed problem-solving and business production model in recent years. In crowd sourcing paradigm, tasks are distributed to networked people to complete such that a company¡¦s production cost can be greatly reduced. A crowd sourcing process involves operations of both requesters and workers. A requester submits a task request, a worker selects and completes a task, and the requester only pays the worker for the successful completion of the task. Obviously, it… Expand

Task recommendation in crowdsourcing systems
In crowdsourcing systems, tasks are distributed to networked people to complete such that a company's production cost can be greatly reduced. Obviously, it is not efficient that the amount of timeExpand
STWM: A Solution to Self-adaptive Task-Worker Matching in Software Crowdsourcing
TLDR
This paper presents a solution that enables customizing task description and adaptive task matching for software crowd work by defining an algorithm that allows self-adaptive matching of the task requirements against the worker skills. Expand
Task Recommendation in Crowdsourcing Platforms
TLDR
The requirements towards task recommendation in task distribution platforms are gathered with a focus on the worker's perspective, the design of appropriate assignment strategies is described, and innovative methods to recommend tasks based on their textual descriptions are provided. Expand

TLDR
This paper designs a novel collaborative crowdsourcing framework that allows task requesters as well as workers to provide feedback to the task executors or co-workers and proposes a heuristic task assignment called FCC-SA which averagely distribute skillful workers to all collaborative tasks.

TaskRec: A Task Recommendation Framework in Crowdsourcing Systems
TLDR
This paper proposes a Task Recommendation (TaskRec) framework based on a unified probabilistic matrix factorization, aiming to recommend tasks to workers in dynamic scenarios, and shows that TaskRec outperforms the state-of-the-art approach. Expand
Tasks Recommendation in Crowdsourcing based on Workers' Implicit Profiles and Performance History
TLDR
A crowdsourcing recommendation approach is proposed and evaluated that is based on a push methodology that aims to help workers to instantly find best matching tasks according to their interests and qualifications as well help the requesters to pick from the crowd the best workers for their desired tasks. Expand
TasRec: a framework for task recommendation in crowdsourcing
TLDR
This paper proposes a framework for recommending tasks to workers and evaluates the worker's fitment over the tasks based on worker's preference, past tasks (s)he has performed, and tasks done by similar workers. Expand
Real-time recommendation algorithms for crowdsourcing systems
TLDR
This article proposes two real-time recommendation algorithms for crowdsourcing systems: (1) TOP-K-T that computes the top- k most suitable tasks for a given worker and (2) Top- k-W that compute theTop- k best workers to a requester with regard to a given task. Expand
Making Task Recommendations in Crowdsourcing Contests
TLDR
A methodology to develop a system that can recommend tasks to solvers who wish to participate in crowdsourcing contests based on the probability of the solver winning an open task is proposed and a multinomial logit model has been developed to estimate these winning probabilities. Expand

Task search in a human computation market
TLDR
The main findings are that on a large scale, workers sort by which tasks are most recently posted and which have the largest number of tasks available and that at least some employers try to manipulate the position of their task in the search results to exploit the tendency to search for recently posted tasks.

Crowdsourcing participation inequality: a SCOUT model for the enterprise domain
TLDR
This paper examines crowdsourcing participation levels inside the enterprise (within a company's firewall) and shows that it is possible to achieve a more equitable distribution of 33-66-1. Expand
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. Expand
TagRec: Leveraging Tagging Wisdom for Recommendation
TLDR
A factor analysis approach called TagRec is proposed based on a unified probabilistic matrix factorization by utilizing both users’ tagging information and rating information, which indicates that the approach can be applied to very large datasets. Expand
The sheep market
TLDR
The Sheep Market is a web-based artwork that appropriates Amazon's Mechanical Turk system to implicate thousands of workers in the creation of a massive database of drawings, calling attention to the massive and insignificant role each plays as part of a whole. Expand

A social recommendation framework based on multi-scale continuous conditional random fields
TLDR
A novel model, Multi-scale Continuous Conditional Random Fields (MCCRF), is proposed as a framework to solve above problems for social recommendations, where relational dependency within predictions is modeled by the Markov property, thus predictions are generated simultaneously and can help each other.
