As mentioned in Chapter 3, an SVD voting interface is used to explore group consensus to guide the actions for the human tele-actor. While the voting is an effective way to identify a group consensus, the mechanism itself cannot encourage the user participation in the collaborative decision process. There is a strong need for the system to provide incentives for active participation because the quality of the group decision depends on the participation rate. This chapter attempts to develop a scoring mechanism to encourage the participation rate and to study whether there is a positive correlation between the scoring mechanism and the group decision quality.
