      Algorithmic mechanisms for reliable crowdsourcing computation under collusion 

      Fernández Anta, Antonio; Georgiou, Chryssis; Mosteiro, Miguel A.; Pareja, D. (2015)
      We consider a computing system where a master processor assigns a task for execution to worker processors that may collude. We model the workers' decision of whether to comply (compute the task) or not (return a bogus ...
