Humans, Machines & the Dimensions of Microwork

As per my previous post, I had a great time at the O’Reilly Strata Conference. It was a delight to participate in such a fantastic gathering of folks who work with big data. For those who missed my session, I’ve attached the slides that Claire and I presented. Some of the slides don’t make sense without the voice-over, but hopefully there is enough self-contained content in them to be useful.

The presentation was recorded and will be available as part of the Strata 2012 Video Compilation.

The insight on slide #13 is what led Gene and I (et al) to start working on explicitly collaborative search back in 2006-2007. That was around the time everyone else was talking “wisdom of crowds”, which required independent workers. So I’m completely on board with a non-wisdom of crowd, dependent worker. I think there is a wealth of unexplored techniques about how to best deal with multi-person, non-independent, shared tasks.
