Appsheet: Efficient use of web workers to support decision making
HCIL-2011-26

The wealth of information and social resources online has raised the bar for the quality of decisions that individuals and businesses can make. Human computation and social mediums have also increased the potential for finding relevant information or opinions and making them a part of a decision-making process. However, the strategies that individuals employ when confronted with too much information--satisficing, information foraging, etc.--are more difficult to apply with a large, distributed group. Appsheet is a new technology foundation that uses a spreadsheet model of a decision to guide distributed search parties in support of decision-making applications.
