Study: We Should Crowdsource Global Warming Solutions Using Artificial Intelligence

One such human computation project, YardMap.org, launched by Cornell University in 2012, uses crowd-sourcing to help environmentalists and conservationists find ways to make their yards more environmentally friendly. It is similar in many ways to Wikipedia, in that the site lets users build on to other people’s Earth-friendly ideas. “By sharing and observing practices in a map-based social network, people can begin to relate their individual efforts to the global conservation potential of living and working landscapes,” Janis Dickinson, Professor and Director of Citizen Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, said in a press statement issued earlier this week by HCI. But using a crowd-sourcing system to tackle complex problems like climate change, Michelucci warns, could backfire. What happens if a crowd-sourcing solution to global warming is found and…
