AlphaGo lost today after the human player made an unexpected move, throwing off AlphaGo expectations. This reminded me of our  "Beat the Machine" system, where we incentivized humans to find examples that the machine misses, and makes incorrect decisions with confidence. Typically these examples were cases that were  unlike any examples in the (existing) training data. These are the "unknown unknowns" for the machine learning systems, and humans can help discover such cases quickly.

I wish more people are discussing the possibilities of human-machine symbiosis, as you seem to be suggesting here.

A Cohort Analysis of Mechanical Turk Requesters
In my last post, I examined the number of "active requesters" on Mechanical Turk, and concluded that there is a significant decline in the numbers over the last year. The definition of "active requester" was: " A requester is active at time X if he has a HI...

The Decline of Amazon Mechanical Turk
It seems that after years of neglect, Mechanical Turk starts losing its appeal. In our latest measurement, we see Mechanical Turk losing 50% of its requesters in a YoY measurement. A few days ago,  Kristy Milland (aka SpamGirl) asked me if there is a way to...

The World Bank Report on Online Labor
I am often asked about statistics and data about the global population of "crowdsourcing" workers, going beyond Mechanical Turk. I am happy to say that from now on I will be able to point everyone to a study from The World Bank, which I was fortunate to par...

Did you know you could get bibtex directly from a doi? It's called DOI content negotiation and it can do a lot of other really cool tricks.

I don't know how to do get bibtex from the browser but this works on the command line:

curl -LH "Accept: application/x-bibtex" http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11083-012-9252-6

Here is the magic output:

@article{Dorais_2012,
doi = {10.1007/s11083-012-9252-6},
url = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11083-012-9252-6},
year = 2012,
month = {mar},
publisher = {Springer Science $\mathplus$ Business Media},
volume = {30},
number = {2},
pages = {415--426},
author = {Fran{\c{c}}ois Gilbert Dorais and Steven Gubkin and Daniel McDonald and Manuel Rivera},
title = {Automorphism Groups of Countably Categorical Linear Orders are Extremely Amenable},
journal = {Order}
}

DOIs provide a persistent link to content. They identify many types of work, from journal articles to research data sets. Typically, someone interacting with DOIs will be a researcher, who will resolve DOIs found in scholarly references to content using a DOI resolver. Such researchers may not ...
