Microtask crowdsourcing has grown in popularity in recent years. Microtasking is a form of crowdsourcing in which typically small, simple tasks are distributed over the Internet to a large number of people, also known as workers. Workers are highly susceptible to developing musculoskeletal disorders due to prolonged computer use and the...

Microtask crowdsource workers are negatively influenced, mentally as well as physically, by the repetitive nature of the tasks they perform. Research is ongoing on whether using a gesture-based input technique could mitigate these negative effects. This paper identifies possible ways that using gestures as an alternative input modality could...

Commonsense knowledge is information that all humans own and use to interpret common situations and react to them accordingly. This kind of information is necessary for the training of artificial intelligence models to reach a performance as close as possible to human performance. Researchers have developed methods that use crowdsourcing to...

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) brought rapid developments in generating synthetic images by mimicking structures in the training data. With the list of application of GANs growing drastically, it has lately become an exciting technology to explore for designers to communicate their ideas and arts through technology and create engaging...

People who perform work on micro-task crowdsourcing platforms, often do so using a mouse and/or keyboard for many hours at a time, while alternative modes of input could potentially provide a better experience. This research investigates the feasibility of using webcam-based eye-tracking in a micro-task work environment. We accomplish this by...

The health of micro-task crowdsourcing workers, also called crowdworkers, is something that is overlooked in the micro-task crowdsourcing literature. Due to repetitive tasks, they can develop Repetitive Strain Injuries. To look into other ways of navigating Crowdsourcing Work Environments (CSWEs) outside the mouse and keyboard paradigm, we...

Microtask crowdsourcing workers, also known as crowd workers, perform small tasks known as microtasks.<br/>These people use crowdsourcing platforms to complete these microtasks.<br/>Crowd workers have to work in front of a screen to complete these microtasks, risking musculoskeletal problems and other mental problems.<br/>Their working...

Many fatal accidents that involve pedestrians occur at road crossings, and are attributed to a breakdown of communication between pedestrians and drivers. Thus, it is important to investigate how forms of communication in traffic, such as eye contact, influence crossing decisions. Thus far, there is little information about the effect of...

Research in the area of human information interaction (HII) typically represents viewpoints on debated topics in a binary fashion, as either against or in favor of a given topic (e.g., the feminist movement). This simple taxonomy, however, greatly reduces the latent richness of viewpoints and thereby limits the potential of research and...

Music content annotation campaigns are common on paid crowdsourcing platforms. Crowd workers are expected to annotate complex music artifacts, a task often demanding specialized skills and expertise, thus selecting the right participants is crucial for campaign success. However, there is a general lack of deeper understanding of the distribution...

Conversational agents are being widely adopted across several domains to serve a variety of purposes ranging from providing intelligent assistance to companionship. Recent literature has shown that users develop intuitive folk theories and a metaphorical understanding of conversational agents (CAs) due to the lack of a mental model of the...

This thesis looks at how to characterize weaknesses in machine learning models that are used for detecting privacy-sensitive data in images with the help of crowdsourcing. Before we can come up with a method to achieve a goal, we first need to make clear what we consider privacy-sensitive data. We took the General Data Protection Regulation ...

Previous research showed that perceived risk is an important psychological determinant of road user behaviour and accident prevalence. However, little knowledge exists about how objective in-scene features affect a driver’s perceived risk in interactions with pedestrians. This crowdsourcing study tries to fill this research gap. A total of 1082...

The ongoing urbanization has led to the emergence of several complex constructions and multi-dimensional property rights. Traditional cadastral procedures cannot meet the demands of this new reality, leading to increased costs and long delays.

Crowdsourcing has become a standard approach for the collection of the human input required by scientists and practitioners alike to execute their experiments, or to train, control, and verify the behavior of their intelligent systems. Despite years of successful research and industrial application, how to improve the engagement and satisfaction...

The world around us is filled with materials. Our ability of visual material perception informs us how to navigate and interact with our environment. It tells us, for example, whether food is fresh, if a chair is strong enough to sit on, how much force to use to pick up a glass, etc. Painters have studied how to depict the world and the...

Despite the ever-growing advances in artificial intelligence (AI), common sense acquisition and reasoning is still comparingly in their early stages to other fields in AI. To further advance this field, it is necessary to collect large amounts of common sense facts or tacit knowledge to train such AI models. One effective way is to use...

With the growing popularity of conversational interfaces, new use-cases in which conversation may be an effective medium for human-computer interaction are explored. Recent works have shown how conversational interfaces can improve worker engagement in micro-task crowdsourcing and that task performance is comparable to web-based interfaces. This...

The manual process of collecting and labelling data required for machine learning tasks is labour-intensive, expensive, and time consuming. In the past, efforts have been made to crowdsource this data by either offering people monetary incentives, or by using a gamified approach where users contribute to databases as a side-effect of playing an...

Visually impaired people should enjoy the same rights to acquire information as people with normal sight. Since visual contents become more and more pervasive in our daily life, image description becomes increasingly important to help visually impaired people to get equal access to the information contained in visual contents. However, how to...
