Seminar & CEID social hour
Date-place: Friday 24 May, 3-5pm, Building Β (Room AS)
Speaker: Aris Anagnostopoulos, Associate Professor at the Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome.
Title: Algorithmic Issues on Human Computation
Summary: In the last years we have observed the emergence of a variety of systems in which humans and machines both take part in the computation. Success stories include games with a purpose, crowdsourcing services, online labor marketplaces, to name a few. This new paradigm, requires the development of new models and algorithms to capture both the machine and the human elements, and the interactions between them. In this talk I will start with a high-level presentation of some of these systems, and some models and algorithms that allow to capture and use the human input.
About the speaker: Aris Anagnostopoulos is an Associate Professor at Sapienza University of Rome.
