Paper Number

Description

Crowdsourcing is a powerful paradigm for organisations and society at large to coordinate tasks from large networks of people with dynamic roles to achieve certain objectives. In its ideal form high quality outcomes can be achieved at low cost, but unfortunately negative forms of interactions between participants can be counterproductive or downright destructive. In this short paper focus is on one particular form of destructive participant dynamic, namely domination and its various manifestations. We will formulate hypotheses articulating these manifestations and conduct an initial exploration of the appropriateness of these hypotheses in the context of a real-life data set.

Destructive Domination in Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing is a powerful paradigm for organisations and society at large to coordinate tasks from large networks of people with dynamic roles to achieve certain objectives. In its ideal form high quality outcomes can be achieved at low cost, but unfortunately negative forms of interactions between participants can be counterproductive or downright destructive. In this short paper focus is on one particular form of destructive participant dynamic, namely domination and its various manifestations. We will formulate hypotheses articulating these manifestations and conduct an initial exploration of the appropriateness of these hypotheses in the context of a real-life data set.
