2017年1月17日,国际学术权威刊物自然出版集团旗下期刊《Scientific Data》杂志在线发表了南洋理工大学的LILY中心众智科学(Crowd Science)研究团队,包括于涵研究员(Lee Kuan Yew Post-Doctoral Fellow)、申志奇高级研究员、苗春燕教授、Simon Fauvel研究员、林军研究员等,与加拿大英属哥伦比亚大学梁锡高教授、中科院计算所陈益强研究员、山东大学崔立真教授以及香港科技大学杨强教授等共同撰写的论文《A dataset of human decision-making in teamwork management》(团队管理中的人类决策行为数据),发布并向学术界共享了一个综合多因子的团队管理中人类决策行为追踪与分析的大规模数据集。该数据集通过一个模拟复杂项目管理过程的游戏,给参与者提供了不同条件的团队成员的能力和任务特性,以展示他们的决策战略。数据集包含来自不同国家背景的1144名参与者在团队管理过程中决策情况、决策策略、决策结果以及情绪反应的详细数据。该数据集是目前国际公开发布的第一个同时涵盖决策这四个方面的数据集。通过重复测量,数据集可以帮助建立团队管理中决策的基线变异性,导致更现实的决策理论模型和更有效的决策支持方法,为通过大数据分析来研究人类团队合作中的决策要素提供了关键的数据支持。

Summary If research in psychology had a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Award, it would go to—drum roll, please—the group as a decision-making instrument. Since the late 19th century, the group (also known as jury, team, crowd, and swarm) has been . . . → Read More: Tapping into the Wisdom of the Crowd—with Confidence
