Crowd Sourcing Platforms - An UnPresentation

  1. 1. CrowdSourcing Platforms: What  Works, What Doesnt? Mike Ellsworth, Linked InSolutions And The Crowd
  2. 2. Agenda• There are lots of crowdsourcing platforms out there,  including Chaordix, IdeaScale, CrowdSpirit, Zyrist, and  MobIncentive. • Anybody actually implemented one? • Anybody know what works and what doesnt? • The idea seems simple enough, but obviously the  platform and its capabilities, stability and extensibility  can affect the success of the crowdsourcing effort.• Lets learn from one another about what makes a good  plaform, and a good crowdsourcing project. 
  3. 3. What is Crowdsourcing?• Crowdsourcing is a neologism for the act of taking  tasks traditionally performed by an employee or  contractor, and outsourcing them to a group (crowd) of  people or community in the form of an open call. • For example, the public may be invited to develop a  new technology, carry out a design task (also known as  community‐based design[1] and distributed  participatory design), refine or carry out the steps of an  algorithm (see Human‐based computation), or help  capture, systematize or analyze large amounts of data  (see also citizen science).
