Abstract

Recently, with the rise of crowdsourcing, the concept that problems can only be solved by known experts has gradually been replaced. More and more people try to solve the problems via crowdsourcing, with not only efficiency but also inexpensiveness. In this research, we develop a nearby expert discovering mechanism by combining mobile intelligence and social community, and taking crowd wisdom, context, and social impacts into considered. The proposed system allows users to find nearby people whom have certain expertise in handling with difficult problems in real-time via a mobile device.
