An Interactive History of Climate Science

Skeptic paper doesn’t necessarily “reject the consensus position” that humans are causing global warming. It may address a more narrow issue like ocean acidification or the carbon cycle.

Sentiment Analysis Milestone: More than One Million Human Judgments
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

We have been running a lot of jobs through CrowdFlower, but only recently did I step back and add up the tweets processed. For more than 200,000 individual tweets, we have received more than 1,000,000 trusted, human judgments from the CrowdFlower workforce! I know our research team, who had to do a bunch of judgments early on as we worked out a viable strategy, are grateful that we could get help from the crowd.

Seven Great Citizen Science Projects
Distributed Knowledge

Many scientific advancements in prior centuries can be attributed to a single individual or, at most, two to three people that have either independently or jointly innovated. However, advances in technology, global communications and social interactions have meant that the 21st century will be recognized as the century where mass collaboration changes the paradigm.


Citizen Science has become more of a differentiator as scientists are now turning to crowdsourcing to engage large communities of home scientists to help process vast amounts of data and to draw accurate conclusions from scientific research.

Relevancy and Context are "Critical" with Sentiment Analysis
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

A new post from our friends at Dialogue Earth about their ongoing efforts to determine trends in sentiment using crowdsourcing:

After evaluating machine-based sentiment products and talking to experts in the field, we determined that effective machine-based coding—for the short, often cryptic, Twitter tweets we sought to understand—remained a challenge. We’ve been using an approach that relies mainly on crowd-sourced workers to code the sentiment of tweets on various topics, from specific chatter about Google and Apple during SXSW Interactive, to the broad public mood about weather and gas prices.

Geocentric Crowdsourcing. Or how to put the hands-on the city
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Tom Erickson, designer and researcher in the Social Computing Group  at IBM's Watson Labs in New York, believes in crowdsourcing as a force capable to bring to citizens the ability to change the landscape of their cities and effectively create a more intelligent and livable environment. In his paper Geocentric Crowdsourcing and Smarter Cities: Enabling Urban Intelligence in Cities and Regions, Mr. Erickson explores the application of crowdsourcing to cities and regions – what he called “geocentric crowdsourcing.”

In his opinion, rather than people as passive subjects of increasingly ‘smart’ systems developed by tech companies, the vision is that smarter cities can offer a variety of ways for humans to act as first class participants, contributing their abilities to sense, analyze and act. Mr. Erickson focuses his research on designing systems that enable groups of people to interact coherently and productively: originally focused on online systems, the scope of his work has expanded to include real world environments ranging from rooms to cities.

Responding to some questions from Crowdsourcing.org, Mr. Erickson explained the concept of Geocentric Crowdsourcing and his practical application to the cities.
