We study recommendation of deployment strategies to task requesters that are consistent with their deployment parameters: a lower-bound on the quality of the crowd contribution, an upper-bound on the latency of task completion, and an upper-bound on the cost incurred by paying workers. We propose BatchStrat, an optimization-driven middle layer that recommends deployment strategies to a batch of requests by accounting for worker availability. We develop computationally efficient algorithms to recommend deployments that maximize task throughput and pay-off, and empirically validate its quality and scalability.
