With the ever-increasing popularity of mobile computing technology and the wide adoption of outsourcing strategy in labour-intensive industrial domains, mobile crowdsourcing has recently emerged as a promising resolution for solving complex computational tasks with quick response requirements. However, the complexity of a mobile crowdsourcing task makes it hard to pursue an optimal resolution with limited computing resources, as well as various task constraints. In this situation, deep learning has provided a promising way to pursue such an optimal resolution by training a set of optimal parameters. In the past decades, many researchers have devoted themselves to this hot topic and brought various cutting-edge resolutions. In view of this, we review the current research status of deep learning for mobile crowdsourcing from the perspectives of techniques, methods, and challenges. Finally, we list a group of remaining challenges that call for an intensive study in future research.
