* Title - Using Innovative Information Management and Artificial Intelligence to Increase Information Quality in Citizen Science Crowdsourcing
* Abstract - As user-generated content becomes an increasingly important source of data for organizations, a pressing question is how to ensure that information contributed by ordinary people - the crowd - is of sufficient quality to be useful for both known and unanticipated purposes. In this paper, we examine the impact of class-based versus instance-based information management on key dimensions of information quality in crowdsourcing. We present 8 studies, including 6 experiments (laboratory, and field) and two studies with experts and machines - all in the Atlantic Canadian context. We conclude by discussing the implications of our research for theory and practice.
