ADM+S Research Fellow Dr Danula Hettiachchi has co-organised a workshop which will form part of the 2022 ACM CHI Conference. The workshop titled, ‘Reimagining Global Crowdsourcing for Better Human-AI Collaboration’ will explore how a reimagined perspective on crowdsourcing platforms could provide a more equitable, fair, and rewarding experience. The aim is to collectively explore what the future of the crowdsourcing platforms could look like 10–20 years from now.

As a result of interactive ideation work in the workshop, we articulate a future direction roadmap for research centred around crowdsourcing platforms. Finally, as a specific interest area, the workshop seeks to study crowdwork from the context of the Global South, which has been arising as an important but critically understudied crowdsourcing market in recent years.

Call for participation is currently open until 18 February 2022. Anyone interested in the future of crowdsourcing is encouraged to submit vision statements with an overarching question of what these platforms could look like in 10-20 years from now.

The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). CHI – pronounced ‘kai’ – annually brings together researchers and practitioners from all over the world and from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and positionalities, who have as an overarching goal to make the world a better place with interactive digital technologies. The hybrid event will take place from 30 April- 5 May 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana and online.
