Micro-work in France (Le Micro-Travail en France)

The report "Le Micro-Travail en France" presents the results of the DiPLab (Digital Platform Labor) research project , the first survey entirely dedicated to work on French micro-task platforms. According to its results, micro-work is now accessible to French workers through at least 23 platforms. Around 260,000 micro-workers work at least occasionally in France.  In particular, micro-work plays a leading role in the development of artificial intelligence (AI). By performing repetitive tasks, micro-workers annotate, prepare, and enrich the databases that are necessary for the production of algorithms, connected speakers, virtual assistants.
