On Wednesday 24th November at 14:30, we will be hosting a seminar on recent applications of crowdsourcing and social media in enterprises. Crowdsourcing has been defined as the outsourcing of tasks, traditionally performed by an employee or contractor, to an undefined, large group of people or community (a crowd) through an open call.
The presenters are listed below and the venue will be Lloyd Institute room 1.07. All are welcome. [map]
