Crowdsourcing Workflow Execution

Service-oriented architectures map business processes to software components both inside and across organizations. Processes are described as workflows and define the coordination of activities performed by potentially distributed actors.

In my work I examine the requirements and implications of crowdsourced workflow execution in social networks. The traditional workflow approaches are well established in many domains. However they are not suitable for an increasing number of applications due to lack of flexibility, scalability and availability as well as need for simplicity and loose coupling.

Building upon scientific work by Martin Treiber and others (Tweetflows), I try to find a prediction model for the execution probability of crowdsourced lightweight workflows.
