Matt Lease: Recent Adventures in Crowdsourcing and Human Computation

August 29, 2012

Today we (specifically, my colleague Daria Sorokina) had the pleasure of hosting UT-Austin professor Matt Lease at LinkedIn to give a talk on his “Recent Adventures in Crowdsourcing and Human Computation“. It was a great talk, and the slides above are full of references to research that he and his colleagues have done in this area. A great resource for people interested in the theory and practice of crowdsourcing!

If you are interested in learning more about crowdsourcing, then sign up for an upcoming LinkedIn tech talk by NYU professor Panos Ipeirotis on “Crowdsourcing: Achieving Data Quality with Imperfect Humans“.

And if you’re already an expert, then perhaps you’d like to work on crowdsourcing at LinkedIn!
