"Crowdsourcing" and "human computation" refer to various ways that people and computing have been brought together to achieve outcomes that were previously beyond our individual capabilities or expectations. Google's search algorithms, Wikipedia's millions of articles, Amazon's recommendations, and the success of Linux and other open source software projects are examples of ways in which technology and people together have exceeded the capabilities of people or machines in isolation. This course will survey the state of the art in this area, giving practical knowledge of the area, grounded in examples in such areas as artificial intelligence, citizen science, computational photography, e-commerce, epidemiology, finance, human perception, microlabor markets, and online gaming.
