I was last week at the second Reshaping Work in the Platform Economy in Amsterdam. The interest of this small conference is tht it brings together different actors of the platform economy, from academics and students to policymakers, union leaders, workers, and representatives of platforms to discuss.
In an overview of preliminary results of our project DiPLab, Antonio A. Casilli and I presented our reflection on how micro-work powers artificial intelligence (AI), in three main ways:
- Training AI
- Validating outcomes of AI
- Impersonating AI when it is cheaper or simpler that real AI
No more details for now… it will come out as a working paper very soon!
