The 7th volume of the AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2019) contains the papers presented at Skamania Lodge in Washington State near the Columbia Gorge River, USA from October 28-30, 2019. Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the HCOMP conference. While artificial intelligence (AI) and human-computer interaction (HCI) represent traditional mainstays of the conference, HCOMP believes strongly in publishing broad, interdisciplinary research. The field is particularly unique in the diversity of disciplines it draws upon and contributes to, ranging from human-centered qualitative studies and HCI design, to computer science and artificial intelligence, to economics and the social sciences, all the way to digital humanities, policy, and ethics.
In this volume, the papers emphasize work that generates new insights into the human computation side of HCOMP, such as new understandings about human cognition, human-in-the-loop intelligence systems, human-AI interaction and collaboration, algorithmic and interface techniques for augmenting human abilities to perform tasks, and other issues that affect how humans collaborate with AI systems (such as bias, fairness and interpretability).
