On July 5, 2018 I was in Zurich, Switzerland discussing: Subjectivity, Ambiguity and Disagreement (in crowdsourcing) with like-minded people as part of a workshop on SAD https://sadworkshop.wordpress.com/ at the the Human Computation Conference (HCOMP2018).
The paper: ‘Bounding Ambiguity: Experiences with an Image Annotation System was co-authored with Pat Hayes and I was accepted to participate in the conference.
You can read the paper here: BoundingAmbiguity_warren_hayes. In it, we discuss at some length, many of the theories and experiences we have had/been working with over the years in developing ImageSnippets. It was an extremely interesting conference with presentations from different disciplines all discussing what it means to deal with subjectivity, ambiguity and disagreement when crowdsourcing data.
Here are the slides from the lightning talk:
I’m also pleased that – at long last – all of the galleries I am currently creating on this site (http://www.margaretwarren.us) are being generated from SPARQL queries pulling triples which have have been used to tag images in ImageSnippets. More posts on this should be forthcoming as I get around to writing them.
