The Wisdom of Crowds at the Service of Big Data

Prof. Paolo Papotti, EURECOM, Nice, France
Nowadays, we are living an era of data deluge. This is a direct consequence of the widespread adoption of low-cost internet connections, connected smart devices and the ease for end-users to become data "producers". Hence, an increasing amount of such data is continuously pushed on the web for anyone to scrutinize. The analysis of such data calls for novel techniques to improve the quality of the analysis. This doctoral school event will introduce graduate students to state-of-the-art techniques that exploit the wisdom-of-crowds to carefully select relevant data and improve the quality of the results for its analysis. We invite two renowned experts and excellent speakers in the field of advanced data extraction, data mapping, data cleaning, and databases. The teachers will present basic techniques as well as the most recent advances, from advanced data cleansing techniques to crowd-based support (e.g., Yahoo's Mechanical Turk) for data analytics.
Agenda of the event
Prof. Paolo Papotti will talk about the following:
In this lesson, we first describe data cleaning and crowdsourcing, highlighting the main challenges and solutions. We then look at recent results in tackling data cleaning with the help of the crowds. Finally, we discuss how these experiences are pushing several groups to explore new approaches for human-in-the-loop data preparation.
