    9:15 - 10:30  Invited talk by Alessandro Bozzon "Trustworthy Micro-task Crowdsourcing: Challenges and Opportunities"

    Abstract: Micro-task crowdsourcing has become a successful mean to obtain high-quality data from a large crowd of diverse people. In this context, trust between all the involved actors (i.e. requesters, workers, and platform owners) is a critical factor for acceptance and long-term success.

    In this talk, I will discuss some problematic aspects of existing micro-task crowdsourcing platforms, where trust is built on fragmented, opaque, and often incomplete knowledge. I will provide examples in which the adoption of open, transparent, and socially-aware trust-building strategies have led to better crowdsourcing performance. I will then conclude with several proposals on how to increase the amount of trust cues available in crowdsourcing platforms, possibly with methods drawn from related disciplines such as user modelling and HCI.
