Stanford Seminar - Designing and deploying social computing systems inside and outside the lab

October 11, 2019

Andres Monroy-Hernandez Snap Research September 27, 2019 Social computing has permeated most aspects of our lives, from work to play. In recent years, however, social platforms have faced challenges ranging from labor issues with crowd work to misinformation on social media. These and other challenges, along with the emergence of new technical platforms, create opportunities to reimagine the future of the field. In this talk, I will discuss my research designing and deploying social computing systems across three distinct environments: creative collaboration, urban information, and workplace automation. First, I describe an online community I created to connect millions of young creators to learn computational thinking skills as they create, share, and remix games and animations on the web. Then I shift to how this work inspired my next set of systems to connect urban residents as they share information about their local communities. Finally, I will discuss a novel workplace productivity tool we designed to enable information workers to delegate tasks to hybrid intelligence systems powered by humans and AI. I close by articulating the challenges and opportunities ahead for the field, and the ways my team is beginning to explore new systems that support more authentic and intimate connections, building on new technologies including wearables and AR.
