Abstract

Despite the pervasiveness of smart devices, meaningful data cannot be collected easily without an effective platform that meshes with human activities. In this paper, we explore the design space for mobile applications that recommend microtasks in public spaces. In particular, we take a close look at a public transportation environment and suggest some of the contexts in which microtask requests could be embedded. We then discuss a context-aware approach to microtasking in a city, as well as its implications for citizens.
