Case Study: What does the future predict on the scoring outlook for hosts and guests in the sharing
At Alphaveta, we cannot predict the future with certainty. However, based on current trends and developments, we are confident that these are some potential predictions we could see related to the scoring mechanisms for guest and host in the sharing economy as early as in 2023:
Greater emphasis on personalized scoring: As AI and machine learning technologies continue to advance, home-sharing platforms may start to offer more personalized scoring systems that take into account a wider range of factors, such as individual guest and host preferences, past behavior, and location-based data.
Increased transparency and accountability: As guests and hosts become more concerned about privacy and fairness in scoring, platforms may need to provide greater transparency and accountability in their scoring systems, including clear explanations of how scores are calculated and how they are used.
Integration with other services: Scoring systems may become more integrated with other services, such as insurance or security, to provide a more comprehensive and seamless experience for guests and hosts.
More sophisticated fraud detection: Scoring systems may become more sophisticated in detecting fraudulent behavior, such as fake reviews, false claims or inaccurate ratings, to maintain the integrity and trustworthiness of the platform.
Greater focus on emotional intelligence: Scoring systems may start to incorporate more elements of emotional intelligence, such as empathy and social skills, to provide a more nuanced and human-centered approach to guest and host interactions.
Customizable scoring systems: Some platforms may allow guests and hosts to customize their own scoring criteria, based on their individual preferences and needs. This could give users more control over the scoring process and enable them to tailor their experiences to their specific requirements.
Use of blockchain technology: Some platforms may start to explore the use of blockchain technology to enhance the security and reliability of their scoring systems. Blockchain could provide a tamper-proof and transparent way to store and share scoring data, ensuring greater accuracy and trustworthiness.
Integration with social media: Scoring systems may become more integrated with social media platforms, allowing guests and hosts to share their experiences and scores more easily with their social networks. This could help to promote greater transparency and trust in the home-sharing community.
Increased use of machine learning: Scoring systems may become more sophisticated in their use of machine learning algorithms, which could help to identify patterns and insights that might not be immediately apparent to human reviewers. This could lead to more accurate and nuanced scoring systems.
Greater collaboration between platforms: As the home-sharing market becomes more competitive, some platforms may start to collaborate more closely on scoring systems, sharing data and insights to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of guest and host behavior across the industry.
