Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

"Crowdsourcing" and "human computation" refer to various ways that computing has brought together human labor to achieve outcomes that were previously beyond our individual capabilities or expectations.  Wikipedia's millions of articles, the success of Linux and other open source software projects, citizen science, and the generation of large datasets for machine learning and artificial intelligence using "microlabor" are all 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 and give practical knowledge of the area, grounded in numerous examples in diverse settings.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: advanced coursework in Computer Science.
