New York, NY

On September 9, 2015, the Data & Society Research Institute hosted Platformation, a one-day summit that brought together a diverse group of stakeholders for a multi-disciplinary discussion on platform-based labor. Participants included platform business leaders, researchers, labor organization representatives, policy experts, and those contributing labor to this growing sector. The event was co-convened by Dean Jansen, Data & Society Fellow, and Mary L. Gray, Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. Participants raised questions and discussed concerns, but the consensus was that collaboration at a larger scale is necessary to arrive to concrete solutions in all sectors.
