Amazon's Mechanical Turk

May 27th, 2013

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a marketplace for work that requires human intelligence. The Mechanical Turk service gives businesses access to a diverse, on-demand, scalable workforce and gives Workers a selection of thousands of tasks to complete whenever it’s convenient.

These tasks could include Photo / Video Processing, Data Verification / Clean-up, Information Gathering, Data Processing, etc.

As an amazon mechanical worker, you would search or browse through the Human Intelligence Tasks. Accept the HIT (which is a single, self-contained task) and follow the instructions. When you’re done, submit your work. After the requester approves your work, money is deposited into your Amazon Payments account.
