The future of crowd work has been identified to depend on worker satisfaction, but we lack a thorough understanding of how worker satisfaction can be increased in microtask crowdsourcing. Prior work has shown that one solution is to build tasks that are engaging. To facilitate engagement, two methods that have received attention in recent HCI...

The trend of remote work leads to the prosperity of crowdsourcing marketplaces. In crowdsourcing marketplaces, online workers can select their preferable tasks and then complete them to get paid, while requesters design and publish tasks to acquire their desirable data. The standard user interface of the crowdsourcing task is the web page,...

Up-to-date listings of retail stores and related building functions are challenging and costly to maintain. We introduce a novel method for automatically detecting, geo-locating, and classifying retail stores and related commercial functions, on the basis of storefronts extracted from street-level imagery. Specifically, we present a deep...

In online crowd mapping, crowd workers recruited through crowdsourcing marketplaces collect geographic data. Compared to traditional mapping methods, where workers physically explore the area, the benefit of using online crowd mapping is the potential to be cost-effective and time-efficient. Previous studies have focused on mapping urban objects...
