CrowdCamp is part of the AAAI Conference for Human Computation and Crowdsourcing. It is a one-day hack-a-thon for crowdsourcing, human computation, social media, collective intelligence ideas. The focus is on creating a deliverable prototype or study design within the workshop itself. Prior CrowdCamp projects over the last four years have resulted in top-tier conference publications, blog posts, and on-going research.
We invite students, faculty, and industry researchers to participate, from social scientists to programmers, ethnographers to designers, and anyone else interested. Everyone is welcome!
This year's CrowdCamp will highlight the human aspect of crowdsourcing. It will focus on the human elements of the systems built and data collected. All participants are therefore encouraged to embrace ambiguity, uncertainty, and chaos as vital elements of their projects, as well as to incorporate rigorous metrics and methodologies from human subjects research, e.g., psychology, sociology and survey design.
The application should take about 10 minutes. It asks for:
Kona Kai Resort and Marina, San Diego, CA, USA
Past CrowdCamps have shown a strong track-record of bringing together diverse teams of researchers, engineers, and students who work passionately together on well-scoped project ideas. Many participants have continued working on their projects beyond CrowdCamp, generating impactful publications and fruitful collaborations. A few examples include:
