Milestone 3 pentagram DarkHorseIdea: Task Recommender System
- Integrate a recommender system with the crowdsourcing platform.
- Typically each worker has a list of recommended tasks based on skills, current work available, reputations etc.
- The recommender system will also consider the previous tasks completed by workers and then accordingly give corresponding recommendations
- This will reduce the time a worker spends on finding new tasks (one of the common complaints).
- This can be implemented for the requesters also, a list of workers are recommended (might be an unfair method)
A proposed algorithm
Description (Contest-based recommendation algorithm)
- Recommendations for Worker 5 is first identified by finding the task done by him (Task 2)
- A task similar to Task 2 is Task 3 (Category 2)
- Now, Task 3 is also completed by Worker 3 and Worker 4
- We find task done in common by Worker 3 & 4 i.e. Task 5
- Thus Task 5 is recommended to Worker 5
