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.
These examples vividly illustrate how technology has brought beneficial change to entertainment, retailing and education, so the question is why cant we use technology to change the body politic?. As the founder of Social Revolution, I am trying to do just that. Social Revolution aims to harness innovative ideas through crowdsourcing, and distill them into a "Business Plan for U.S.A." to help propel the country forward.. Were going to crowdsource ideas in five key areas - education, healthcare, business, finance and government. All these sectors are clearly ripe for a major disruption.. To manage the idea stream, were relying on an innovative crowdsourcing platform from Pleasanton, Calif.-based Spigit. If youre a company or individual that wants real change, and have a cogent idea about how to implement it, we want to hear from you. If youre using technology to make things better, we need to hear from you.. At Social Revolution, we believe that applying the new technologies offered by ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Researchers from ChildObesity180 at Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition have published a study in the inaugural issue of the Translational Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine (TJACSM). The paper, titled "Crowdsourcing Innovative Physical Activity Programs: Active Schools Acceleration Project Case Study," proposes a framework for crowdsourcing public health intervention models, using as a case example a national effort to surface, select, disseminate and scale up school-based physical activity programs. This crowdsourcing initiative ultimately resulted in the New Balance Foundation Billion Mile Race to get kids moving more in school, through which thousands of schools across the U.S. have signed up to collectively walk and run one billion miles..

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 ...
BUSINESS WIRE)--Building on its foundational excellence of science-driven innovation, Dow turned to the power of the crowd to spearhead new application development and potential markets for UCON™ oil-soluble polyalkylene glycols (oil-soluble PAGs). Partnering with InnoCentive, the first of its kind Oil-Sol Challenge received more than 60 solutions from 43 countries. The Challenge called for industry leaders to collaborate, innovate and problem solve to validate new applications or markets where UCON™ oil-soluble PAGs could offer clear advantages to help solve some of the worlds most pressing challenges. Two winners-Joel Martin and Dmitriy Tipikin-clearly stepped up to the challenge, identifying potential applications for addressing eye disease globally and for providing better environmental and sustainable standards for oil/gas/mining operations. Each was awarded $15,000 for their winning ideas. "Polyalkylene glycol synthetic lubricants have been around for more than 50 years, but have ...

As we noted above, most workers have high precision, while recall is very diverse. That is, quality issues mostly come from missing relevant mentions rather than selecting some wrong ones. This is evident in the figure: most of the timelines are near the top of the plot, but they are spread out over the recall axis. One could think that aggregation could easily fix this bad recall: by combining multiple high-precision, low-recall judgments, we would end up with high-precision, high-recall annotations. We see however that there is a high correlation between workers behavior; they tend to miss the same text segments. In our task, this has a likely explanation: to maximize profit, workers might choose to increase their judgment rate at the cost of reducing work quality. By reading sentences superficially, they would identify the most obvious relevant mentions while missing more demanding ones. This strategy could go unnoticed during judgment collection because our gold-label assessment ...

The Google autonomous driving project exemplifies this approach: the system indexes maps and images that are collected and updated by satellite, Streetview, and crowdsourcing to facilitate accurate localization. Another example is Kiva Systems new approach to warehouse automation and logistics using large numbers of mobile platforms to move pallets using a local network to coordinate planforms and update tracking data. These are just two new projects that build on resources from the Cloud. Steve Cousins of Willow Garage aptly summarized the idea: "No robot is an island." Cloud Robotics recognizes the wide availability of networking, incorporates elements of open-source, open-access, and crowdsourcing to greatly extend earlier concepts of "Online Robots" and "Networked Robots". Cloud Robotics has potential to improve performance in at least five ways: 1) Big Data: indexing a global library of images, maps, and object data, 2) Cloud Computing: parallel grid computing on demand for statistical ...

Lately I have been having weird discharge and Im worried. At first my discharge changed to being heavy and watery with a weird odor then just dry and uncomfortable meaning I stopped having a discharge. Now it heavy once again with the same odor. I did go to a doctor yesterday and was offered a Pap smear exam but because of my fears and backed out. Initially I believed I had a yeast infection so thats what I told the doctor and because I didnt want to do the Pap smear he just decided to give me a one dose medication for a yeast infection. However today Im not so sure I made the right decision. I have noticed a change in my discharge since taking the pill, however when I went to the bathroom and wiped a noticed a brown streak in my discharge. I immediately start to panic and reading up on YouTube only increased my fears. I am honestly worried sick.. to the point of breaking down. I need some advice before i approach my sister. P.S My period started 14 days ago (last for 7 days). Also, noticed ...
Those familiar with my infectious thoughts will know that Im following the deadly European E. coli outbreak with great interest. Earlier this week, it was announced that the genome of the culprit strain had been sequenced by BGI (formally the Beijing Genomics Institute) in collaboration with the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf. A really interesting development has been release of the genomic data to the international community for crowdsourcing alongside a site for people to download up-to-date analyses and a Twitter feed (@BGI_Events). This is how science should be done! BGI and the Beijing Institute of Microbiology and Epidemiology have taken advantage of the genome data to develop a PCR-based diagnostic protocol (using two specific genes) to rapidly identify the outbreak strain. When tested computationally against publicly available whole-genome sequences from over 4,500 strains covering more than 2000 species, the protocol was found to be highly specific for the outbreak strain.

Eat a lot of organic vegetables. They contain antioxidants such as beta carotene, vitamins A and C, minerals, and enzymes which bind to free radicals (unstable, reactive atoms) altering them to prevent cellular damage.. Quality fish oil and omega 3 helps reduce inflammation, balance hormones, and support the immune system.. Eat plantains (big bananas, to be fried). Research has proved it reduces inflammation in the gut.. Consume plenty of insoluble fiber from cellulose in cooked veggies along with some soluble fiber from whole foods like flaxseeds.. Eat resistant starch and other prebiotics, like in leeks, tapioca/manioc and apples, on a regular basis. They increase butyrate production (which reduces intestinal permeability) and support the growth and maintenance of healthy microbial populations.. Get adequate sunlight or take vitamin D3 supplements. Vitamin D helps protect against injuries to the intestinal lining, while a vitamin D deficiency promotes intestinal permeability and ...
