Reputation Workshop: 2012

Reputation Workshop: 2012 2018-09-04T09:33:42+00:00

One of the most important parts of our design is the reputation model that will underpin the system. A reputation model is a way for a user community to collectively regulate and calibrate the contributions of its members. This is a well-established field of study, encompassing many years of academic research and with numerous examples of working systems deployed in the real world.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation we hosted a Workshop on February 22-24, 2012 in San Francisco at the Fort Mason Center, in order to share with and learn from key members of the academic, nonprofit, and commercial sectors who research and use reputation systems.

Day One of the conference was loaded with informative, thought-provoking presentations by experts from the academic and commercial worlds. Jeff Atwood, Cofounder of StackOverflow, was first up to share his experience and insight into the dynamics of reputation system.
