    • Decision Markets with Good Incentives 

      Chen, Yiling; Kash, Ian; Ruberry, Michael Edward; Shnayder, Victor (Springer Verlag, 2011)
      Decision markets both predict and decide the future. They allow experts to predict the effects of each of a set of possible actions, and after reviewing these predictions a decision maker selects an action to perform. ...
    • Making Peer Prediction Practical 

      Shnayder, Victor (2016-07-13)
      My dissertation is on crowdsourcing---using crowds of people to accomplish tasks that are impractical or far more expensive otherwise. I focus specifically on crowdsourcing of information, where workers do tasks such as ...
    • Measuring Performance of Peer Prediction Mechanisms Using Replicator Dynamics 

      Shnayder, Victor; Frongillo, Rafael; Parkes, David C. (2016)
      Peer prediction is the problem of eliciting private, but correlated, information from agents. By rewarding an agent for the amount that their report "predicts" that of another agent, mechanisms can promote effort and ...
    • Practical Peer Prediction for Peer Assessment 

      Shnayder, Victor; Parkes, David C. (AAAI, 2016)
      We provide an empirical analysis of peer prediction mechanisms, which reward participants for information in settings when there is no ground truth against which to score reports. We simulate the mechanisms on a dataset ...
    • Sensor Networks for Medical Care 

      Shnayder, Victor; Chen, Bor-rong; Lorincz, Konrad; Fulford-Jones, Thaddeus R. F.; Welsh, Matt (2005)
      Sensor networks have the potential to greatly impact many aspects of medical care. By outfitting patients with wireless, wearable vital sign sensors, collecting detailed real-time data on physiological status can be greatly ...
    • Truthful prioritization for dynamic bandwidth sharing 

      Shnayder, Victor; Kawadia, Vikas; Hoon, Jeremy; Parkes, David C. (ACM, 2014)
      We design a protocol for dynamic prioritization of data on shared routers such as untethered 3G/4G devices. The mechanism prioritizes bandwidth in favor of users with the highest value, and is incentive compatible, so that ...
    • Truthful Prioritization Schemes for Spectrum Sharing 

      Shnayder, Victor; Hoon, Jeremy; Parkes, David C.; Kawadia, Vikas (IEEE, 2012)
      As the rapid expansion of smart phones and associated data-intensive applications continues, we expect to see renewed interest in dynamic prioritization schemes as a way to increase the total utility of a heterogeneous ...
