Building a Chrome Extension for Efficient Turking: The Case of Openturk

  • Jun 5, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • EPFL

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a microtask crowdsourcing platform, where workers, or so called turkers, can browse and complete microtasks of varying difficulty in exchange of a small monetary reward. Despite its popularity, mTurk offerslittle help on task exploration, and the turkers' precious time is often wasted on searching for interesting tasks to maximize their daily earnings. The Openturk Chrome Extension addresses this particular issue by providing a set of functionalities to monitor preferred requesters, search terms, and to receive recommendations. In this talk I will present the crowdsourcing scene and popular turking tools including Openturk internals, and the challenges ahead.
