We seek to develop different ways to leverage crowdsourcing to augment collected behavioral data and to facilitate collaboration within communities.
Perceived Trust and Relevance of Crowd Contribution
Our objective is to examine people's trust in and understanding of geo-related information shared through crowdsourcing, whether real-time or not. We are curious to know how people perceive the information's relevance and how they trust the contributors, and if they expect the contributors to have specific experiences before answering.
Increase Crowd Participation and Contribution
We aim to determine effective methods for boosting crowd participation, such as the timing of task prompts and the design of interfaces that reduce the effort required to contribute.
