Lecture at the 77th National Convention of the Information Processing Society of Japan
March 25, 2015
I’m Nobuyuki Shimizu from Yahoo! JAPAN Research.
Our crowdsourcing service manager Masashi Nakagawa and I attended the 77th National Convention of the Information Processing Society of Japan on March 19, 2015. At the event planning session “Latest Trends in Crowdsourcing Research & Applications”, we made a presentation titled “Crowdsourcing: Current Status and Issues”. Please refer to our slides.
The basis of our lecture, Yahoo! Crowd Sourcing , is a service that lets anyone earn points in their spare time. You can access it here, so please give it a try.
In speaking to this audience of professionals, we were able to go quite deeply into issues surrounding the use of the service, including user statistics. They asked a lot of questions, and helped us gain a new awareness of the utility and possibilities of crowdsourcing as a social and research base. We intend to provide a method that can speedily, with a huge number of users, resolve issues facing research bodies and society as a whole.
