clickworker, a leading crowdsourcing solutions platform and microtasking expert, is helping develop a Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), leveraging its know-how and technically advanced microtasking platform. The BCI will enable people with disabilities to perform web-based jobs.
The interface will be developed by Quantum Applied Science & Research Inc. (QUASAR) and the National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnologies (NCAN), who received a research grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
Eight European crowdsourcing platforms, the German Crowdsourcing Association (Deutscher Crowdsourcing Verband), and the German Metalworkers’ Union (IG Metall) announced today the establishment of a joint Ombuds Office. The Ombuds Office will be tasked with resolving disputes between crowdworkers, clients, and crowdsourcing platforms and with overseeing enforcement of the “Crowdsourcing Code of Conduct” adopted by the platforms.
The Code of Conduct is signed by the German crowdsourcing platforms Testbirds, clickworker, Streetspotr, Crowd Guru, AppJobber, content.de, and Shopscout and by the British platform Bugfinders. In total the eight platforms count approximately two million worker registrations between them. The Crowdsourcing Code of Conduct is to date the only agreement in which online labor platforms voluntarily agree to hold themselves to minimum standards with respect to working conditions and relations between workers, clients, and platforms. The goal of the Code of Conduct is to codify the existing standards in Germany with respect to fair dealings with crowdworkers and to ensure that these standards are maintained as the market for crowd work grows.
clickworker, one of the leading providers of crowdsourcing services, has registered one million Clickworkers on its platform since early September. The robust growth of the crowd over the past two years reflects the increased interest in flexible online jobs.
The size of the crowd opens new opportunities for implementing projects
When clickworker first executed its crowdsourcing projects in 2009, only 800 Clickworkers, located in Germany, were registered. Because of this, implementing international projects was nearly impossible. Today, with more than one million Clickworkers all over the world, the company has an enormous pool of expertise and working power at its disposal. This way, Clickworkers with specific traits in terms of language, location, and knowledge can be used for customer projects.
