Human-Powered Data Management
In this talk, I will first present a broad perspective of our research on human-powered data management, and I will describe some systems and applications that have motivated our research. I will then present details of one of the problems we have addressed: filtering large data sets with the aid of humans. Finally I will argue that human-powered data management is an area in its infancy, by describing a number of open problems I intend to address in my future research program.
