Elasticity, referring to the on-demand availability of storage and computing resources, is a key characteristic of cloud. On the other hand, the demands for the cloud resources are greatly related to various of human factors, either individual or crowd behavior. In this talk, I would give an overview on human-cloud systems research, from the perspectives of human-cloud interaction, cloud crowd behaviors and human-centered cloud architecture. I will also briefly talk about the human-cloud applications, including cloud gaming, blockchain systems, crowdsourcing, federated learning, edge computing, etc.
