Abstract

CrowdRec 2015 provides the recommender system community with a forum at which to discuss crowdsourcing and human computation. Systems that explicitly collect information from human annotators to improve recommendations are becoming more widespread. At this year's workshop, we highlight incentivization and the issue of avoiding bias. We take a special look at how recommender systems can inuence collective behavior, and the contribution that the crowd can make to recommender system evaluation.
