Welcome! My name is Deniz Iren. I am a postdoctoral researcher in Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands. My research fields are; crowdsourcing, collective intelligence, business process management (BPM), and natural language processing (NLP).Currently, I am working on several projects:
- BReToPI: We are working on developing NLP-based algorithms to come up with an automated, effective and "cool" way of linking organizational assets with process improvement actions.
- Satelleye: I have developed several crowdsourcing quality assurance methods to be used in spatial information retrieval. Empowered with these methods, it is now possible to crowdsource satellite image analysis for point-of-interest (POI) detection. Applications widely vary from detecting traces of ancient civilizations to monitor land-use, water resources, and effects of climate change.
- Voice of a Thousand Minds: This government funded R&D project aims at transforming visual web content into audial equals by using crowdsourcing-based simple vocalization techniques.
I am also an amateur endurance sports and adventure racing athlete and a photography enthusiast. Well, there is a whole lot to tell about myself. So instead you better check the links below to get to know me.
