The invention consists in a method for applying techniques of crowdsourcing and social networking to the problem of finding information online
, in particular to answer questions for which the traditional search engines are not able to provide satisfactory answers.
The system allows you to start with partial responses provided by conventional engines
and to establish a set of possible users that could potentially answer directly the question.
The system uses social connections established on a commercial social networks, communities of practice and channels of crowdsourcing
to forward the application to the users, who can respond through the same connection channels.
The system allows to configure the behavior of the application
according to a series of parameters
(i.e. the expected level of quality, maximum waiting time, number of responses), which contribute to improve the selection of channel and responder users.
Campo di applicazione
<b>Web applications</b> that allow to <b>combine traditional search technology with requests sent to Web users</b> who are asked to answer (e.g. requests on specific geographic locations, requests on advanced medical information, requests on members’ community opinion, etc).
<h2><span style="font-size: 12px;">The proposed model</span><span style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal; "> uses a </span><span style="font-size: 12px;">simple interaction between search technology</span><span style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal; "> (i.e. presenting the search results in ranking order) and </span><span style="font-size: 12px;">crowd processing</span><span style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal; "> (i.e. engaging humans in re-evaluation of search results), thus extending the crowdsourcing idea, already popular in many virtual markets, to the search field.</span></h2>
