Aim of this project is to evaluate and enhance the usage of crowdsourcing micro-task services by enterprises considering data confidentiality and providing tools and solutions for that.
The focus is on 1) which tasks can/cannot be assigned to a specific worker and 2) who (workers) should be permittd to perform a task, both with a goal of increasing data confidentiality. The confidentiality is algorithmically improved by dispersion (maximize unrecognizability) using spatial assignment and disruption functions. Individual software solutions for confidential crowdsourcing are developed and evaluated for spatial work assignment and user scoring/ selection.
Business cases are evaluated and results should be transfer to Web-based Starbytes (REPLY) and Mobile-based Crowdee (TUB). Partners also working on spoof-prevention of location information using continues (multiple) measurements, from multiple sources (e.g. GPS, IP, WiFi-prints) of user position. The goal is to detect fake locations.
Meanwhile worker solutions for inviting specific groups of workers to perform tasks are developed and evaluated. Workers are selected based on their social and behavioral scores assigned to them by interaction modeling and gamification depending to the work-type.
