Abstract

Digital voice assistants or smart speakers have rapidly changed the landscape of voice user interfaces over the past few years. In this paper we discuss how we could utilise the affordances of these devices to create a novel crowdsourcing platform that deliver crowd tasks through voice with particular focus on creative tasks. We describe the potential benefits and challenges of using this technology for these purposes, and outline our future work in this research area
