Last month we (Marta Sabou & Stefani Tsaneva) visited The Ninth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2021), where we were able to discuss our WiP paper “A Human Computation Approach for Ontology Restrictions Verification”.
The event was hosted on Gather.town which made the experience very interesting and fun and more close to an in-person conference than a typical virtual meeting.
We listened to many interesting talks discussing, among other topics:
- the combination of Machine Learning with Human Computation
- a shift from layman-crowdsourcing towards expert-sourcing
- increasing interest in the detection of bias in datasets
- crowdsourcing as a career & learning opportunity and the well-being of crowd workers, and
- real industry crowdsourcing use cases.
