Abstract: With the rapid development of internet technology and sharing economy mode, as a new crowd computing mode, crowdsourcing has been widely applied and become a research focus recently. Aiming at the characteristics of crowdsourcing applications, to ensure the completion quality of crowdsourcing tasks, the existing researches have proposed different crowdsourcing task assignment methods from the perspective of the evaluation of worker's ability. Firstly, the crowdsourcing's concept and classification were introduced, and the workflow and task characteristics of the crowdsourcing platform were analyzed. Based on them, the existing research works on the evaluation of workers' ability were summarized. Then, the crowdsourcing task assignment methods and the related challenges were reviewed from three different aspects, including matching-based, planning-based and role-based collaboration. Finally, the research directions of future work were put forward.

Key words: crowdsourcing, task assignment, evaluation of workers’ ability, quality control, information security

摘要: 随着互联网技术和共享经济模式的快速发展,作为一种新型的群体计算模式,近年来众包(Crowdsourcing)已经得到了广泛的应用并成为研究热点。针对众包应用的特点,为确保众包任务的完成质量,现有研究从工作者能力评估的角度出发已提出了各种不同的众包任务分配方法。首先介绍了众包的概念和分类,阐述了众包平台的工作流程及其任务特点,并在此基础上总结了现有的工作者能力评估的相关研究工作;然后从基于匹配、基于规划和基于角色协同等三个方面综述了众包任务分配方法及其遇到的挑战;最后提出了未来工作的研究方向。
