Abstract:

This major research project will focus on the primary investigation area of microwork. Several sub-areas of inquiry will be visited in order to explore potential new directions, determine and suggest factors potentially maximizing impact via microwork projects, including historical examples of analog micro-tasks and their possible correlations to both existing and future digital microwork; the mechanized design elements for executing microwork projects, including drivers, challenges and opportunities, and ultimately the potential for future impacts via microwork, on individual and collective levels, with focus on increasing social impact, and volumes of action.

In turn, this combined understanding will suggest the formation of a new
microwork model, as well as a business model canvas for evaluation, by helping to suggest the theoretical and physical components required for success, such as new socially-based drivers, tools, mechanics, success metrics, and processes.
