Xerox Supports Singh’s Research on Social Computing in the Marketplace
Dr. Munindar Singh, professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $55,000 by Xerox Corporation to support his research proposal titled “Social Computing and Community Engagement for Collaborative Service Marketplace.”
The award runs from December 1, 2012 to November 30, 2013.
Abstract - We propose to investigate the challenges of understanding social computing applied in the enterprise in the context of facilitating engagements among communities of service providers, requesters, and partners in enterprise service marketplace. Specifically, we will study the problems of (1) detecting and recommending relevant communities based on an analysis of interactions and transactions in the service marketplace to improve the engagement, and (2) building an intelligent model for recommending services and workflows to maximize value in the marketplace.
