Сrowdsourcing entails the process of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content from a large group of people (wiki link). A wide variety of tasks can be crowdsourced. But in any crowd, people have different skills and different backgrounds, which means that some workers may be better than others at some tasks, and worse than others at other tasks. Tasks can vary from easy ones, those with binary questions (simple analysis of images, i.e. questions like “Is there a human face on the image?”), to complex ones such as translation or any other task where the output is intricate. Due to the lack of proper communication, it is impossible to predict what problems will be met during the creation and execution of a task. Language barriers, ambiguity of questions and the quantity of work-time relationship can cause huge risk of task failures. But both requesters and workers are interested in receiving good quality work, therefore they are interested to receive feedback to improve their work and to lower the risk of task failures.

Analysing Failure Idea: a "FeedbackMe" system

Introduction

Сrowdsourcing entails the process of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content from a large group of people (wiki link). A wide variety of tasks can be crowdsourced. But in any crowd, people have different skills and different backgrounds, which means that some workers may be better than others at some tasks, and worse than others at other tasks. Tasks can vary from easy ones, those with binary questions (simple analysis of images, i.e. questions like “Is there a human face on the image?”), to complex ones such as translation or any other task where the output is intricate. Due to the lack of proper communication, it is impossible to predict what problems will be met during the creation and execution of a task. Language barriers, ambiguity of questions and the quantity of work-time relationship can cause huge risk of task failures. But both requesters and workers are interested in receiving good quality work, therefore they are interested to receive feedback to improve their work and to lower the risk of task failures.
