Title: A Bold Outlook on Crowdsourcing and Crowd-Based Adaptive Learning

Abstract: In this talk I will first provide an overview of the state-of-the-art techniques of crowdsourcing, point out some research issues, followed by a bold outlook onto the bright future of crowdsourcing and its application, particularly in facilitating adaptive/personalized education and learning. Individualized teaching and personalized learning have been a long-time dream of human beings (since Confucius’s time). The recent advances of multiple related technologies (Internet and WWW, machine learning, data mining, and crowdsourcing, etc.) have made it now the right time to truly realize this millennium-long dream of human beings. In the second part of this talk, I will communicate the thoughts (of me and a few colleagues) on developing a crowd-based adaptive learning platform. The platform will be centered around the key concept of knowledge graph, based on which, learning will be freshly redefined as a graph navigation problem. Multiple technologies will need be collaboratively leveraged toward achieving the ultimate goal – enabling truly personalized learning via such a crowd-based comprehensive learning platform.
