Organizing Committee: Theo Damoulas, Thomas G. Dietterich, Edith Law and Serge J. Belongie

Invited Speaker: Eric Horvitz (MSR)

This workshop will bring together researchers at the interface of machine learning, citizen science, and human computation. The goals of the workshop are i) to identify common problems (e.g., sampling bias, noise, etc.), ii) to propose benchmark datasets, common practices and improved methodologies for dealing with these problems, iii) to identify methods for evaluating models in the absence of ground truth, iv) to share approaches for implementing and deploying citizen science and human computation projects in scientific and sustainability domains, and v) to foster new connections between the scientific, sustainability, and human computation research communities.
