The chapters, written by leading international researchers, explore existing and future opportunities to combine the respective strengths of both humans and machines in order to create powerful problem-solving capabilities. The book bridges scientific communities, capturing and integrating the unique perspective and achievements of each. It coalesces contributions from experts in diverse areas, including a foreword by celebrated cultural anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson, to reveal that human computation encompasses disciplines from crisis management to digital curation to scientific and market research. The book combines industry perspectives with related disciplines in order to motivate, define, and anticipate the future of this exciting new frontier in science and cultural evolution. The comprehensive, current, and interdisciplinary treatment transcends the technical scope of previous studies on the topic. Readers will discover valuable contributions covering Foundations; Application Domains; Techniques and Modalities; Infrastructure and Architecture; Algorithms; Participation; Analysis; Policy and Security and the Impact of Human Computation. Researchers and professionals will find the Handbook of Human Computation a valuable reference tool. The breadth of content also provides a thorough foundation for students of the field.\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Part I. Foundations -- Part II.
