Title Crowdsourcing versus the laboratory: Towards human-centered experiments using the crowd
Abstract Crowdsourcing solutions are increasingly being adopted across a variety of domains these days. An important consequence of the flourishing crowdsourcing markets is that experiments which were traditionally carried out in laboratories on a much smaller scale can now tap into the immense potential of online labor. Researchers in different fields have shown considerable interest in attempting to carry out priorly constrained lab experiments in the crowd. In this chapter, we reflect on the key factors to consider while transitioning from controlled laboratory experiments to large scale experiments in the crowd.
