Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk

I tried hands on Amazon Mechanical Turk Developer sandbox because of its __ and restriction-free access across nations. It is a simulated environment that allows users to test their applications and perform HITs[Human Intelligence Tasks]. Being a testing platform, it does not allow transfer of funds outside the sandbox. I completed a total of 21 tasks and managed to earn 2.10 USD. Below is a screenshot of my dashboard from worker account at MTurk.

I attempted the tasks among following categories:

  • Find the Hotel Name Address for Given URL
  • Find the correct(valid) url
  • Find the website address for restaurant
  • Tagging of an Image

Experience the life of a Requester on Mechanical Turk

Reflect on your experience as a requester on Mechanical Turk. What did you like? What did you dislike? Also attach the CSV file generated when you download the HIT results. If you're from outside the USA and unable to access MTurk, you can try the MTurk requester sandbox, or CrowdFlower or Microworkers or Clickworker

csv file of results: File:Batch 119356 batch results.csv

Explore alternative crowd-labor markets

Compare and contrast the crowd-labor market you just explored (TaskRabbit/oDesk/GalaxyZoo) to Mechanical Turk.
