Crowdsourcing describes a novel mode of value creation in which organizations broadcast tasks that have been previously performed in-house to a large magnitude of Internet users that perform these tasks. Although the concept has gained maturity and has proven to be an alternative way of problem-solving, an organizational cost-benefit perspective has largely been neglected by existing research. More specifically, it remains unclear when crowdsourcing is advantageous in comparison to alterna-tive governance structures such as in-house production. Drawing on crowdsourcing literature and transaction action cost theory, we present two case studies from the domain of crowdsourced software testing. We systematically analyze two organizations that applied crowdtesting to test a mobile appli-cation. As both organizations tested the application via crowdtesting and their traditional in-house testing, we are able to relate the effectiveness of crowdtesting and the associated costs to the effective-ness and costs
Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) is an online crowdsourcing service where anonymous online workers complete web-based tasks for small sums of money. The service has attracted attention from experimental psychologists interested in gathering human subject data more efficiently. However, relative to traditional laboratory studies, many aspects of the testing environment are not under the experimenters control. In this paper, we attempt to empirically evaluate the fidelity of the AMT system for use in cognitive behavioral experiments. These types of experiment differ from simple surveys in that they require multiple trials, sustained attention from participants, comprehension of complex instructions, and millisecond accuracy for response recording and stimulus presentation. We replicate a diverse body of tasks from experimental psychology including the Stroop, Switching, Flanker, Simon, Posner Cuing, attentional blink, subliminal priming, and category learning tasks using participants recruited using AMT.
Aggression in group-housed laboratory mice is a serious animal welfare concern. Further understanding of the causes of mouse aggression could have a significant impact on a large number of laboratory animals. The NC3Rs led a crowdsourcing project to collect data on the prevalence and potential triggers of aggression in laboratory mice. The crowdsourcing approach collected data from multiple institutions and is the first time such an approach has been applied to a laboratory animal welfare problem. Technicians observed group-housed, male mice during daily routine cage checks and recorded all incidents of aggression-related injuries. In total, 44 facilities participated in the study and data was collected by 143 animal technicians. A total of 788 incidents of aggression-related injuries were reported across a sample population of 137,580 mice. The mean facility-level prevalence of aggression-related incidents reported across facilities was equivalent to 15 in 1,000 mice. Key factors influencing the
Next we sit down to design the key features of our platform. Print off the template and address these questions with colleagues or your crowdsourcing provider.. 1. What is the name of our crowd? Having the right tone for our crowdsourcing platform can help recruit and engage people. Make it descriptive and light-hearted. Will the platform have a separate identity and logo or keep close to our design guidelines?. 2. Record the project objective: Be specific and realistic. What type of innovations are you seeking and why?. 3. Choose the type of crowd: Insight Crowds help us get to know what our consumers think in depth and over an extended period. Running an Insight Crowd is like having the depth of a focus group but with the scale and longevity of a research panel. Ideas Crowds are used to brainstorm ideas for new products and services. They are often formed from customers or users. In later stages of the innovation process Ideas Crowds can be used to prototype or pre-test new concepts in a ...

This paper examines the challenges and opportunities in using mobile phones for political participation. In doing so, a study was conducted on the open crowdsourcing election monitoring platform UgandaWatch. SMS questionnaires were sent out to a) a randomised sample of Ugandan mobile phone users and to b) a sample of users of UgandaWatch. The key findings were; a) open crowdsourcing provides a useful channel in cases when citizens experience that there is nowhere else to turn, and when citizens need help; b) the major reasons for not using UgandaWatch was not having heard of the service and not having anything to report; c) the primary challenges in using UgandaWatch was fear of personal safety, the cost factor, and the perception of participation not having any effect; d) most users never visited the website but of those who did 75 per cent did so through their mobile browsers. Drawing on our findings, we recommend; 1) strategic and educational marketing: inform the public why the service ...

A large repertoire of gene-centric data has been generated in the field of zebrafish biology. Although the bulk of these data are available in the public domain, most of them are not readily accessible or available in nonstandard formats. One major challenge is to unify and integrate these widely scattered data sources. We tested the hypothesis that active community participation could be a viable option to address this challenge. We present here our approach to create standards for assimilation and sharing of information and a system of open standards for database intercommunication. We have attempted to address this challenge by creating a community-centric solution for zebrafish gene annotation. The Zebrafish GenomeWiki is a wiki-based resource, which aims to provide an altruistic shared environment for collective annotation of the zebrafish genes. The Zebrafish GenomeWiki has features that enable users to comment, annotate, edit and rate this gene-centric information. The credits for contributions
Introduction: The majority of Thailands road traffic deaths occur on motorised two-wheeled or three-wheeled vehicles. Accurately measuring helmet use is important for the evaluation of new legislation and enforcement. Current methods for estimating helmet use involve roadside observation or surveillance of police and hospital records, both of which are time-consuming and costly. Our objective was to develop a novel method of estimating motorcycle helmet use.. Methods: Using Google Maps, 3000 intersections in Bangkok were selected at random. At each intersection, hyperlinks of four images 90° apart were extracted. These 12 000 images were processed in Amazon Mechanical Turk using crowdsourcing to identify images containing motorcycles. The remaining images were sorted manually to determine helmet use.. Results: After processing, 462 unique motorcycle drivers were analysed. The overall helmet wearing rate was 66.7 % (95% CI 62.6 % to 71.0 %). Taxi drivers had higher helmet use, 88.4% (95% CI ...

Melanoma is the most deadly of all skin cancers. If melanoma is found early, it is easier to treat. Researchers at the University of Utah and Texas Tech University have identified a new approach for finding suspicious moles that could be melanoma: mole crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing refers to using crowds of people, often recruited online, to accomplish tasks. An individual performing a skin self-exam can miss about half of melanomas. But with mole crowdsourcing, one example showed if at least 19 out of 100 people think a mole is suspicious, then a doctor should examine it. Researchers are developing a cell phone application that will allow people to take a photo of a mole and have that image evaluated by other users.

We have developed a crowdsourcing web application for image quality control employed by the Dark Energy Survey. Dubbed the DES exposure checker, it renders science-grade images directly to a web browser and allows users to mark problematic features from a set of predefined classes. Users can also generate custom labels and thus help identify previously unknown problem classes. User reports are fed back to hardware and software experts to help mitigate and eliminate recognized issues. We report on the implementation of the application and our experience with its over 100 users, the majority of which are professional or prospective astronomers but not data management experts. We discuss aspects of user training and engagement, and demonstrate how problem reports have been pivotal to rapidly correct artifacts which would likely have been too subtle or infrequent to be recognized otherwise. We conclude with a number of important lessons learned, suggest possible improvements, and recommend this ...

NBER Working Paper, October 2017. Abstract:. Crowdsourcing - a collaborative form of content production based on the contributions of large groups of individuals - has proliferated in the past decade. Due to this growth, recent research has focused on understanding the factors that affect its sustainability. Prior studies have highlighted the importance of volunteers prosocial motivations, the sense of belonging to a community, and symbolic rewards within crowdsourcing websites. One factor that has received limited attention in the existing literature is how the design of crowdsourcing platforms affects their sustainability. We study whether the design element - particularly, the divisibility of contributions (i.e. whether contributing tasks are bundled together or can be carried out separately) - is a factor that affects the level and quality of crowdsourcing contributions. We investigate this in the context of Zooniverse, the worlds largest crowd-sourced science site, in which volunteers ...

This emergent pathogen has received little study in the past and its effect threatens to overwhelm the ash population. In response to this we have produced some initial genomics datasets and taken the unusual step of releasing them to the scientific community for analysis without first performing our own. In this manner we hope to crowdsource analyses and bring the expertise of the community to bear on this problem as quickly as possible. Our data has been ...
When it rains on Metro, it pours. But a local blog and a nonprofit are hoping that riders can help alleviate the agencys sorry state through a crowdsourcing contest theyve branded as MetroGreater.. Greater Greater Washington and the transit-focused Coalition for Smarter Growth announced the endeavor on Wednesday, as Metro implements its yearlong SafeTrack maintenance plan. The contest, however, is aimed at smaller, faster, cheaper changes than the $60-million plan is expected to accomplish. Riders can submit their ideas to improve Metros customer-service experience online, until July 15; theyll also be able to weigh in on others. A jury of regional experts and advocates will select 10 finalists before the public votes for a winner in August. According to the groups, Metro has promised to act on the most popular recommendation within six months, and could choose to enact others.. Those of us outside the transit agency cant turn wrenches or replace rail ties, Stewart Schwartz, CSGs ...
Are there additional ways that biochemists could benefit from crowdsourcing? What if there was a website for biochemists to compare notes in their roles as customers regarding their experiences with journals and with vendors. For example, 2011 has been a good year for my research group in terms of paper publishing. Four original research articles made it through the evaluation process, and two more are about to be submitted. Each of these will appear in a different journal, and my experience with each journal was distinct. The manuscript-submission websites varied in terms of ease of use, clarity and time required to complete the submission; the time for review varied significantly; the quality of the reviews differed; and each paper was subject to a different level of academic editor oversight. Scientists gossip about such differences, but what if there were a Biochemadvisor.com website with reviews of our experiences as customers of different journals? Whenever I am planning a trip to a new ...

Crowdsourcing to expand HIV testing among men who have sex with men in China: A closed cohort stepped wedge cluster randomized controlled trial
Although supervised learning requires a labeled dataset, obtaining labels from experts is generally expensive. For this reason, crowdsourcing services are attracting attention in the field of machine learning as a way to collect labels at relatively low cost. However, the labels obtained by crowdsourcing, i.e., from non-expert workers, are often noisy. A number of methods have thus been devised for inferring true labels, and several methods have been proposed for learning classifiers directly from crowdsourced labels, referred to as learning from crowds. A more practical problem is learning from crowdsourced labeled data and unlabeled data, i.e., semi-supervised learning from crowds. This paper presents a novel generative model of the labeling process in crowdsourcing. It leverages unlabeled data effectively by introducing latent features and a data distribution. Because the data distribution can be complicated, we use a deep neural network for the data distribution. Therefore, our model can ...
One major problem I noticed with Amazon Mechanical Turk is the payment structure. The person who will pay you, the requester, has complete control over whether or not you get paid. They can approve or deny your work for any reason, and you have no recourse. The Turker community has come up with a firefox plugin called Turkopticon that rates requesters to try to combat this issue, but since many requesters havent been rated yet, the plugin doesnt solve the problem entirely. Whenever a person decides to start a fashion business, a click over https://www.evergreenwealthformula.com/new/ should be done. All the issues are solved through the experts to get the desired results at online fashion industries. The facing of the problem is with the skills and excellence of online learners with fashion courses.. Conclusion. Amazon Mechanical Turk is a legitimate way to make money online if you dont need much and you dont mind making less than minimum wage. Some of the hits can be entertaining, and so ...

Thats pretty impressive. And unlike bonkers ideas such as photonic fences, this crowdsourced approach requires little beyond bandwidth for distributing images and enough people participating. Putting the two together potentially allows huge numbers of blood samples to be checked for the presence of malaria infection with high accuracy once the system has been refined to include additional factors like parasite species and growth stages. That makes this approach scalable -- crucially important when there are over half a million new cases of malaria each year. The same can hardly said about using magnets to make mosquitoes explode.

Knowing the likely course of cancer can influence treatment decisions. Now a new prediction model published today in Lancet Oncology offers a more accurate prognosis for a patients metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. The approach was as novel as the result - while researchers commonly work in small groups, intentionally isolating their data, the current study embraces the call in Joe Bidens Cancer Moonshot to open their question and their data, collecting previously published clinical trial data and calling for worldwide collaboration to evaluate its predictive power. That is, researchers crowdsourced the question of prostate cancer prognosis, eventually involving over 550 international researchers and resulting in 50 computational models from 50 different teams. The approach was intentionally controversial.. Scientists like me who mine open data have been called research parasites. While not the most flattering name, the idea of leveraging existing data to gain new insights ...
Outrageous it may sound but the thought has been around on the web for some time now. There are some people who are of opinion that Image interpretation is one aspect of medicine that may sometime be read by collective intelligence. Have seen patients in the past who have some uncommon disease and they have done their own research on the internet about their disease and its radiological findings, and in turn they are sometimes able to do a better job than overworked unaware radiologist. Probably this may lead to some way of crowd sourcing- may be in future we might have patients putting up their images minus the identification on this crowd sourcing portal and have everybody comment on the images, they may other patients with similar diseases, Doctors, radiologists in other countries and help them reach to final conclusions. Something like Wikipedia versus Peer review journals, i rely more on Peer reviewed material, but i find myself on wikipedia more often whenever i am looking for something ...
Background: Despite visits to multiple physicians, many patients remain undiagnosed. A new online program, CrowdMed, aims to leverage the “wisdom of the crowd” by giving patients an opportunity to submit their cases and interact with case solvers to obtain diagnostic possibilities. Objective: To describe CrowdMed and provide an independent assessment of its impact. Methods: Patients submit their cases online to CrowdMed and case solvers sign up to help diagnose patients. Case solvers attempt to solve patients’ diagnostic dilemmas and often have an interactive online discussion with patients, including an exchange of additional diagnostic details. At the end, patients receive detailed reports containing diagnostic suggestions to discuss with their physicians and fill out surveys about their outcomes. We independently analyzed data collected from cases between May 2013 and April 2015 to determine patient and case solver characteristics and case outcomes. Results: During the study period,

We describe the effect of social media advertising content on customer engagement using data from Facebook. We content-code 106,316 Facebook messages across 782 companies, using a combination of Amazon Mechanical Turk and natural language processing algorithms. We use this data set to study the association of various kinds of social media marketing content with user engagement-defined as Likes, comments, shares, and click-throughs-with the messages. We find that inclusion of widely used content related to brand personality-like humor and emotion-is associated with higher levels of consumer engagement (Likes, comments, shares) with a message. We find that directly informative content-like mentions of price and deals-is associated with lower levels of engagement when included in messages in isolation, but higher engagement levels when provided in combination with brand personality-related attributes. Also, certain directly informative content, such as deals and promotions, drive consumers path to ...
Recent legalizations of cannabis at the state level in the United States have given rise to renewed interest in the price elasticity of demand for cannabis and implications for likely state excise and sales tax revenues. We use crowdsourced data on prices, qualities, and consumption of cannabis across regional markets in the United States to estimate the price elasticity of demand for cannabis. We use distances from growing areas to the major markets as a proxy for cost variations. We obtain an estimate of the price elasticity of demand for cannabis of -0.418, which suggests that legalizing and taxing recreational cannabis use would be lucrative for government treasuries.------------------------------------Las recientes legalizaciones del cannabis a nivel estatal en los Estados Unidos han dado lugar a un renovado interés en la elasticidad en los precios de la demanda de cannabis y sus implicaciones en los ingresos por impuestos estatales y sobre ingresos por ventas.

Abstract: For many people, Wikipedia represents one of the primary sources of knowledge about foreign cultures. Yet, different Wikipedia language editions offer different descriptions of cultural practices. Unveiling diverging representations of cultures provides an important insight, since they may foster the formation of cross-cultural stereotypes, misunderstandings and potentially even conflict. In this work, we explore to what extent the descriptions of cultural practices in various European language editions of Wikipedia differ on the example of culinary practices and propose an approach to mine cultural relations between different language communities trough their description of and interest in their own and other communities food culture. We assess the validity of the extracted relations using 1) various external reference data sources (i.e., the European Social Survey, migration statistics), 2) crowdsourcing methods and 3) simulations ...

Voters in the Portland area today were thinking about trouble with the vote.. Ive heard stuff and Im concerned about it. The vote being suppressed thing, people not going to the polls because they heard something, said one man.. Which is not to say everyone thinks the system is rigged.. If you look at statistics the voter fraud claims nationally are next to, statistically, zero. I have no doubt whatsoever that the system is not rigged as they say, said Bob Walsh in Northwest Portland.. Electionland is harnessing social media, crowdsourcing and several other tools along with the journalists and students reporting.. If a problem is reported by someone near one of the reporters, theyll quickly work to find the facts or sound the alert that its false.. The project shot down an earlier report by TMZ that elections officials in New York and California said they were worried about fraud.. Reed college professor Paul Gronke thinks Electionland is a great idea.. I dont think its going to be so ...
April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. In a new variety of crowdsourcing, a researcher from Imperial College London is using vacation snapshots to track the movement of whale sharks. This study, published in the journal Wildlife Research, is the first to show that publicly sourced photographs are suited to conservation efforts.. During scuba diving and snorkeling expeditions in the Maldives, tourists frequently take underwater pictures of the whale shark - the worlds largest fish. Until now, the value of amateur snapshots has never been measured, although conservationists have long hoped to use this photographic resource to help them trace the sharks´ life history, relationships and geographic distribution.. To examine the reliability of publicly sourced photographs, Tim Davies of Imperial College Londons Department of Life science, and his colleagues compared results using tourist photos with results based on surveys by marine researchers who were specifically tracking the ...

The objective of the proposed project is to leverage crowdsourced data to better understand interstate mobility and congestion in Alabama. The results can be used by state employees and consultants to make changes and improvements to enhance mobility and safety. Crowdsourced data is a new and emerging data set that has been piloted in a couple of Alabama counties, but a statewide exploration will help to characterize operations across the entire state. The characterization can be used to identify areas with congestion concerns. From a safety standpoint, congestion on the interstate is a cause for crashes due to queuing and large speed differentials. Assessing the statewide interstate mobility performance will include producing a prioritized list of concerns (highly-congested areas) and possible countermeasures or improvements that might be made to improve conditions. As the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) reorganizes from districts into regions, these same techniques will be used at ...
After analyzing the aggregate, anonymized data of about 160,000 U.S. users whove posted photos of dogs and/or cats, Facebook found that dog-posters tend to be more extroverted, more upbeat and luckier in love than their feline-photographing friends. Meanwhile, cat people tend to be single, to express a wider range of emotions (including, chiefly, exhaustion and annoyance), and to harbor an unusually strong interest in fantasy, anime and science fiction.. This is fun - and funny - in the way of all big data analyses that claim to give us some profound insight into ourselves. (Cat lovers, I wouldnt take it too seriously: There are drawbacks to this sort of analysis.) But even more interesting, for our purposes, is how Facebook arrived at these conclusions. The social network did not hire 100 people on Mechanical Turk to comb through photos tagging dogs and cats, as similar analyses might have done in the past.. Instead, the company relied on its in-house image-recognition technology - a ...

Luminoso, a Cambridge, MA-based text analytics and artificial intelligence company, spun out of the MIT Media Lab and its crowd-sourced Open Mind Common Sense (OMCS) project. The company has raised $8 million in financing and its clients include Sony, Autodesk, Scotts Miracle-Gro, and GlaxoSmithKline. Luminoso was co-founded in 2010 by Dennis Clark, Jason Alonso, Rob Speer, and CEO Catherine Havasi, a research scientist at MIT in artificial intelligence and computational linguistics. The company builds on the knowledge base of MITs Open Mind Common Sense (OMCS) project, co-founded in 1999 by Havasi, who continues to serve as its director. The OCMS knowledge base has since been combined with knowledge from other crowdsourced resources, games with a purpose, and expert-created resources to become ConceptNet. ConceptNet consists of approximately 28 million statements in 304 languages, with full support for 10 languages and moderate support for 77 languages. ConceptNet is a resource for making an ...
The proof that ancestral mammal at monotreme divergence had trichromatic (rather than tetrachomatic) vision involves a significant technical issue: showing that the first 4 exons of SWS1 are truly deleted rather than simply missing from the assembly: vertebrate genomes being incomplete, absence of evidence in an assembly (or trace archives) does not constitute evidence of absence in the genome but more commonly lack of coverage, even for a species such as platypus with 33,353,710 reads. Opsins dont lend themselves to simplistic reconstructions based on retina spectroscopy and processed transcripts because of potential evolutionary convergence of spectral properties and multiple lineage-specific expansions and contractions of genes. Whats needed here are complete genomes and syntenic validation of orthology, lacking hereto a certain degree here in key species (eg 3 of 6 known chicken opsins are missing from its current assembly). However using the platypus genome, it is possible to reliably ...
The Open Science Framework (OSF) is an open source software project that facilitates open collaboration in science research. This framework was used to work on a project in the reproducibility of psychology research.[9][10] The current reproducibility project is a crowdsourced empirical investigation of the reproducibility of a variety of studies from psychological literature. The reproducibility project samples from three major journals: Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, and Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition.[11] Scientists from all over the world volunteer to replicate a study of their choosing from these journals, and follow a structured protocol for designing and conducting a high-powered replication of the key effect. The results were published in 2015.[12] Whilst OSF initially focused on psychology, it has since broadened into any research field.[13] In 2016 the group released three new open source preprint services ...

Accurate flood models require large amounts of data inputs which are not always available. Recently data coming from other sources, such as crowdsourced data, have been increasingly explored in the scientific literature. However, there is no clear methodology showing where willing citizens could go for data collection. Thus, this study proposes an optimization framework to generate and prioritize pathways that citizens could take while collecting data. The proposed framework is tested on the Sontea-Fortuna area, part of the Danube Delta, where water stagnation is threatening the local ecosystems. Among the pathways generated, results analysis showed that pathways closer to the starting point were more effective..

There are many opportunities still to be discovered by exploring industrial applications. Data is a particularly rich area, for example: when 3D printing is used to manufacture parts, that portion of the process becomes natively digital,12 managed by software, with a continuous outward stream of data created and available for analysis. Likewise, there is the potential to use tracking and analytics to plot the consumption of spare parts and enhance product performance, as well as predict maintenance and aftercare activities.. Certain areas of the 3D-printing industry are currently highly fragmented. This presents an opportunity for a major player to offer a standardized platform for approved, crowdsourced printing files, guaranteeing security, data privacy and stability. This fragmentation presents other challenges too: for example, understanding the tax implications of a blueprint created in one country thats then used to 3D print a product in another. And it can be very difficult for ...

Grand Turk Island is located in the beautiful Caribbean paradise of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory. Turks and Caicos are composed of 41 islands and cays, of which eight are inhabited. Located just 575 miles off Miami, Grand Turk Island is home to Cockburn Town, the historical and cultural center point of this Caribbean island.. Originally inhabited by Taino and Lucayan natives, it is here that Christopher Columbus discovered the New World when he landed on Grand Turk in 1492 during his initial voyage. Nearly 500 years later astronaut John Glenn landed just off the coast of Grand Turk in his voyage to become the first American to orbit the Earth.. Starting with Bermudian salt-rakers in the 1700s and then English settlers, the island has a wonderful mixture of Bermudian-British architecture and turn-of-the-century Caribbean charm. The quiet streets are lined with buildings from the past and as the ocean breaks along the shoreline, visitors often feel transported to a ...
