Professor Alex Rogers wins Prominent Paper Award 2021 from the Artificial Intelligence Journal


We are delighted to announce that Professor Alex Rogers has received the Artificial Intelligence Journal (AIJ) Prominent Paper Award for the paper Efficient crowdsourcing of unknown experts using bounded multi-armed bandits. The AIJ Prominent Paper Award recognises outstanding papers published in the journal in the last seven years that are exceptional in their significance and impact.

The paper has been identified by the awarding body as “having developed the first comprehensive framework for the rigorous and principled mathematical analysis of task allocation algorithms in crowdsourcing systems” as well as for its work on “the proposed bounded bandits, a new sequential decision making model to solve task allocation problems with resource constraints”. The committee commented that the award has been given as the work has had a “significant impact on subsequent work carried out in both industry and academia”.
