Background and Motivation

The Future of Work, Kittur etal 2013 has shown that Incentives and motivation play a big role in developing sustainable crowd sourcing communities. Workers like to follow their passion and perform the tasks that suits to their skill-sets. This approach helps workers build their resume, career, earn money, and work on projects of their interests.

Design Goal

Match me with the work I am passionate about.

Task Categories

Crowd sourcing systems can be designed to solve large number of problems. The eco-system can involve tasks and work that require different kind of expertise and skills. These tasks can be broken down into various categories as shown in the figure below

goal

Incentive/Interests Categories

Workers who participate in these tasks have different motivation as indicated in the figure below. We envision automated hiring/task recommender algorithm that can match workers with their areas of interest. This will give them a freedom to choose the projects they care about. Previous research in the field of organizational behavior has shown that individuals are more committed to work if the tasks they are performing fall under their area of interests.

goal


Distribution of Work according to interests of workers:

  • Maintain the Master Profile Map of Tasks according to functionalities.
  • Maintain Master Profile Map of Workers' skills, experience, salary history, salary expectations, and interests.
  • Develop Clustering/Classification algorithm to maintain categorize of profiles.
  • A perfect matching/recommender algorithm to match workers profile with tasks
