I’ve created a self-referential Human Intelligence Task on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk.
The task is to create more Human Intelligence Tasks that might be interesting or neat or funny. If I find any good ones, I’ll implement those.
I’m currently paying participants $.15 per idea, though I have no idea if this is a reasonable amount of money to compensate someone for coming up with the brilliant kind of ideas already on the site:
I’ve pleged $33 to this task, so that means I should have roughly 200 (minus some fees, etc.) ideas by the end of it. Go lazyweb!
Yeah. Amazon mechanical turk is pretty awesome but it depends on what you’re trying to do. I was doing some nlp (topic/category resolution) and ended up making a Facebook app disguised as a classification training system to train my system.
