Title: NRG meeting: Mechanism design with uncertainty
It's Christine's PhD Oral Exam.

Presenter: Christine Bassem

Providing crowdsourcing services on-demand is an interesting problem, which  
adds complexity to the classical task allocation problem. Providing  
human-based services, as these provided in crowdsourcing systems, requires  
algorithms/mechanisms that consider the player’s incentive to perform a  
task, as well as his uncertainty of completing that task. In this talk, I  
will present the different notions of uncertainty in mechanism design, and  
how they apply to crowdsourcing. I will focus on two different notions of  
uncertainty; the uncertainty of job completion of workers in a task  
allocation problem, and the uncertainty of job length in a single processor  
scheduling problem. In details, I will discuss the main results in  
mechanism design literature proposed to handle these two specific models of
