Virtual Teams in Gig Economy: An End-to-End Data Science Approach
Wei Ai, University of Maryland, College Park
Friday, October 8, 2021
The gig economy provides workers with the benefits of autonomy and flexibility, but it does so at the expense of work identity and co-worker bonds. In a series of studies, we develop a team formation and inter-team contest at a ride-sharing platform. We will introduce an end-to-end data science approach, combining methodologies from randomized field experiments, recommender systems, and counterfactual machine learning in this talk.
