Prior work and perception theory suggests that when exposed to discussion related to a particular piece of crowdsourced text content, readers generally perceive that content to be of lower quality than readers who do not see those comments, and that the effect is stronger if the comments display conflict. This ...

A key issue, whenever people work together to solve a complex problem, is how to divide the problem into parts done by different people and combine the parts into a solution for the whole problem. This paper presents a novel way of doing this with groups of contests called contest ...

Several intelligent technologies designed to improve navigability in and digestibility of text corpora use topic modeling such as the state-of-the-art Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA). This model and variants on it provide lower-dimensional document representations used in visualizations and in computing similarity between documents. This article contributes a method for validating ...
Keywords: algorithm validation, Perceived similarity, similarity metrics

Microtask crowdsourcing organizes complex work into workflows, decomposing large tasks into small, relatively independent microtasks. Applied to software development, this model might increase participation in open source software development by lowering the barriers to contribu-tion and dramatically decrease time to market by increasing the parallelism in development work. To explore ...

Large-scale collaboration systems often separate their content from the deliberation around how that content was produced. Surfacing this deliberation may engender trust in the content generation process if the deliberation process appears fair, well-reasoned, and thorough. Alternatively, it could encourage doubts about content quality, especially if the process appears messy ...
Keywords: discussion, dispute resolution, perceptions of quality, trust, user-generated content
