Abstract

Crowdsourcing allows human intelligence tasks to be outsourced to a large number of unspecified people at low costs. However, because of the uneven ability and diligence of crowd workers, the quality of their submitted work is also uneven and sometimes quite low. Therefore, quality control is one of the central issues in crowdsourcing research. In this paper, we consider a quality control problem of POI (points of interest) collection tasks, in which workers are asked to enumerate location information of POIs. Since workers neither necessarily provide correct answers nor provide exactly the same answers even if the answers indicate the same place, we propose a two-stage quality control method consisting of an answer clustering stage and a reliability estimation stage. Implemented with a new constrained exemplar clustering and a modified HITS algorithm, the effectiveness of our method is demonstrated as compared to baseline methods on several real crowdsourcing datasets.
