Sellers' problems in human computation markets
Proceedings of the ACM SIGKDD Workshop on Human Computation (HCOMP '10)
“Tools for human computers" is an under-explored design space in human computation research, which has focused on techniques for buyers of human computation rather than sellers. We characterize the sellers in one human computation market, Mechanical Turk, and describe some of the challenges they face. We list several projects developed to approach these problems, and conclude with a list of open questions relevant to sellers, buyers, and researchers.
