Crowdsourcing Knowledge Generation.
Ask the Crowd is a crowdsourcing portal for knowledge generation.
Users are able to create statistically evaluable surveys with nominal and numeric parameters.
Since answers cannot contain free text, but must consist of predefined and numeric values only,
survey results can be evaluated automatically.
In order to facilitate survey evaluation the portal generates real-time visualizations of the data. Furthermore, users can upload their own data visualizations or interactively correlate parameters using scatterplots and bubble charts.
User registration with the portal is neither required for survey participation nor survey creation, effectively minimizing entry barriers.
