Human Computation in Data Science

Speaker:  Dongwon Lee – State College, PA, United States
Topic(s):  Information Systems, Search, Information Retrieval, Database Systems, Data Mining, Data Science


As a novel computation paradigm, human computation (a.k.a. crowdsourcing) is being actively pursued in diverse academic disciplines. Within computer science, many sub-fields have also embraced the concept of human computation with open arms and applied the paradigm to solve many challenging problems. In this introductory talk, I will introduce the brief history and concepts of human computation and discuss novel opportunities and challenges arising therein. In addition, I will also present several noteworthy applications of human computation in computer science in general and in data science in particular. The talk also includes a live hands-on demo of an example of human-powered sorting.
