Demo Class Lecture

January 22, 2021
10:00-11:00 am ET
Sococo Halligan 102, Zoom
Speaker: Molly Feldman
Host: Megan Monroe


Computation typically involves executing algorithms on a physical computer. What can we accomplish if we ask people to perform computation as part of these algorithms? In this talk, I will introduce the field of human computation by demonstrating how human computation algorithms operate and what they can accomplish. I will then discuss how designers can obtain high quality output from these methods.


Molly Q Feldman is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Williams College. As a computer scientist, she thinks about computing for and with humans. While completing her PhD at Cornell University, she researched how computational techniques can be adapted to solve complex human problems in meaningful ways. She was also involved with courses from intro to AI and ran the programming languages seminar. Before Cornell, she received her B.A. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Swarthmore College. When she's not in front of a screen, she enjoys rock climbing and perfecting her eggplant parmesan.
