My lab creates systems that use a combination of both human and machine computation to solve problems quickly and reliably. We have introduced the idea of continuous real-time crowdsourcing, as well as the ‘crowd agent’ model, which uses computer-mediated groups of people submitting input simultaneously to create a collective intelligence capable of completing tasks better than any constituent member.
