Task Allocation With Incentive Engineering

Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

We use data-provenance graphs to solve a problem within incentive engineering: motivating people to accept proposals generated in software. Across several provenance graphs created within the HAC-ER disaster-management system, we ran retrospectively a bespoke algorithm for subgraph matching in order to extract narrative information from the provenance data. The output of the algorithm comprised a series of text messages which, had they been generated at the time of the disaster trial, would have been transmissible with the specific intention of encouraging participants not to reject certain tasks.

The algorithm found all expected subgraphs within the provenance graphs, on an any-time basis and in a time linearly proportional to the number of nodes. Our algorithm is extendable to other situations in which agents present tasks to humans.
