The ghostworker's well-being: An integrative framework

Project description

A closer look at AI’s human workers

Today, AI is increasingly demanding low-tech human support in coding, verification and cleaning of software material. The so-called ghost workers perform such short-term tasks on demand, anonymously, through automated platforms, without any feedback from colleagues or managers. Despite the growth of this particular phenomenon, the influence of such an occupation on work-related well-being remains unresearched. To address this urgent gap, the EU-funded GHOSTWORK project will conduct an in-depth study of ghost workers’ working conditions and how these impact their overall well-being. A new multi-methodological approach will be developed, enabling an integrated framework incorporating models, theory and empirical findings.
