Orchestrating Collective Intelligence to Modernize Statistical Data Collection

Transparency and access to information is critical to high functioning economies. However, as the world becomes more interconnected, complex and volatile, our capacity to perform robust statistical measurement is becoming increasingly fragmented. Premise is building machinery to for performing evidence-based surveys at a world-scale, leveraging a global network of 30,000 data contributors in 34 countries to capture structured information using mobile technology. This talk will focus on the call for modernizing data collection at a global scale and why the new frontier of mobile technology is the conduit for the future of business and economics. On the platform-side, several open areas under active research will be highlighted: Optimizing task allocation for quality and budget; Designing for both exploration and exploitation; and combating fraud and collusion on a network.


Joe Reisinger is the CTO and co-founder of Premise, a mobile technology platform orchestrating and crowdsourcing the collection of micro-data for precise and robust economic measurement. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Texas and spent his academic career building natural language understanding systems at Google Research and IBM T.J. Watson. Prior to co-founding Premise, he was Chief Scientist at Metamarkets.
