A role-based collaborative process design on crowdsourcing systems

Abstract : Crowdsourcing is a collaborative business process model, in which tasks are carried out by a crowd. In crowdsourcing systems, there are two types of stakeholders namely, requesters who outsources tasks, and the crowd or contributors, performing those tasks. We consider a stakeholder as an actor or a standalone software component, evolving on a platform and having both mechanisms of interaction with its environment and business skills. A set of stakeholders interacting in a dynamic context for solving a problem, is a distributed collaborative system, and we term it crowsourcing system. In such a system, the role concept is central, because each stakeholder must have a specific framework within which he collaborate. Traditionally, collaborative systems lose flexibility if their design is role-based, because only static role description mechanisms based on intuitive concepts are available. We propose in this paper, an improvement consisting of four things: (1)defining clearly what an outsourceable task or crowd task is, (2)specifying roles clearly and rigorously, while ensuring flexibility for collaboration, (3)providing role switching mechanisms and, (4) providing an abstract basis, for crowdsourcing system design and workflow monitoring and checking mechanisms, for potential activities, dynamically carried out by a system.
