Our study of novice and expert image geolocation techniques was accepted for the GroupSight workshop on human computation for image and video analysis at HCOMP 2016 in Austin, Texas. Congrats to Ph.D. student Sneha Mehta, the lead author of the paper.
Ph.D. student Nai-Ching Wang was accepted to the HCOMP 2016 Doctoral Consortium, where he will present his dissertation research on crowdsourced analysis of historical documents, and receive feedback from experts in the field.
We received an NIH grant to study how crowdsourcing might be used to improve the layouts of biological graph visualizations. This project is a collaboration between Dr. Kurt Luther (MPI) and Dr. T.M. Murali (MPI) at Virginia Tech and Zooniverse, the world’s largest online citizen science portal. The grant is approximately $620,000 over two years and is part of the NIH’s Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program.
