Workshop – Amazon Mechanical Turk

The Faculty of Social Science has organized a workshop on

Amazon Mechanical Turk


Taylor Kohut, Post-Doc (Psychology)

Monday, February 11th
10-11 am
SSC 5220

“Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing marketplace that makes it easier for individuals and businesses to outsource their processes and jobs to a distributed workforce who can perform these tasks virtually. This could include anything from conducting simple data validation and research to more subjective tasks like survey participation, content moderation, and more. MTurk enables companies to harness the collective intelligence, skills, and insights from a global workforce to streamline business processes, augment data collection and analysis, and accelerate machine learning development.”

This workshop is open to faculty members, post-docs, graduate students as well as technical and research staff.

RSVP required. There are a limited number of spots available.

Please see the attached poster for further details.
