    • Designing Incentives for Online Question and Answer Forums 

      Jain, Shaili; Chen, Yiling; Parkes, David C. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
      In this paper, we provide a simple game-theoretic model of an online question and answer forum. We focus on factual questions in which user responses aggregate while a question remains open. Each user has a unique piece ...
    • Designing incentives for online question-and-answer forums 

      Jain, Shaili; Chen, Yiling; Parkes, David C. (Elsevier BV, 2014)
      We provide a game-theoretic model of sequential information aggregation motivated by online question-and-answer forums. An asker posts a question and each user decides when to aggregate a unique piece of information with ...
    • An Economically Principled Generative Model of AS Graph Connectivity 

      Corbo, Jacomo; Jain, Shaili; Mitzenmacher, Michael D.; Parkes, David C. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2007)
      We explore the problem of modeling Internet connectivity at the Autonomous System (AS) level and present an economically-principled dynamic model that reproduces key features of the AS graph structure. We view the graph ...
    • An Economically-Principled Generative Model of AS Graph Connectivity 

      Corbo, Jacomo; Jain, Shaili; Mitzenmacher, Michael D.; Parkes, David C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009)
      End-to-end packet delivery in the Internet is achieved through a system of interconnections between the network domains of independent entities called autonomous systems (ASes). Inter-domain connections are the result of ...
    • A Game-Theoretic Analysis of Games with a Purpose 

      Jain, Shaili; Parkes, David C. (Springer-Verlag, 2008)
      We present a simple game-theoretic model for the ESP game, an interactive game devised to label images on the web, and characterize the equilibrium behavior of the model. We show that a simple change in the incentive ...
    • The Role of Game Theory in Human Computation Systems 

      Jain, Shaili; Parkes, David C. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
      The paradigm of "human computation" seeks to harness human abilities to solve computational problems or otherwise perform distributed work that is beyond the scope of current AI technologies. One aspect of human computation ...
