Zooniverse - Real Science Online

Zooniverse - Real Science Online | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data R&D | Scoop.it

The Zooniverse is home to the internet's largest, most popular and most successful citizen science projects. Our current projects are here but plenty more are on the way. If you're new to the Zooniverse, we suggest picking a project and diving in - the same account will get you into all of our projects, and you can keep track of what you've contributed by watching 'My Zooniverse'.

Crowdsourcing and Human Computation

Crowdsourcing and Human Computation | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data R&D | Scoop.it

"Crowdsourcing and human computation are emerging fields that sit squarely at the intersection of economics and computer science. They examine how people can be used to solve complex tasks that are currently beyond the capabilities of artificial intelligence algorithms. Online marketplaces like Mechanical Turk provide an infrastructure that allows micropayments to be given to people in return for completing human intelligence tasks. This opens up previously unthinkable possibilities like people being used as function calls in software. We will investigate how crowdsourcing can be used for computer science applications like machine learning, next-generation interfaces, and data mining. Beyond these computer science aspects, we will also delve into topics like prediction markets, how businesses can capitalize on collective intelligence, and the fundamental principles that underly democracy and other group decision-making processes."

Collective Intelligence 2014

Collective Intelligence 2014 | Bits 'n Pieces on Big Data R&D | Scoop.it

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together researchers from a variety of fields relevant to understanding and designing collective intelligence of many types.

 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

human computation

social computing

crowdsourcing

wisdom of crowds (e.g., prediction markets)

group memory and extended cognition

collective decision making and problem-solving

participatory and deliberative democracy

animal collective behavior

organizational design

public policy design (e.g., regulatory reform)

ethics of collective intelligence (e.g., “digital sweatshops”)

computational models of group search and optimization

emergence and evolution of intelligence

new technologies for making groups smarter
