Mechanical Turk's Launch

Wednesday November 2nd as a great day, Amazon's Mechanical Turk launched, essentially artificial artificial intelligence is finally being pushed by a company with some money to make it work. So I started up this blog, to keep track of activities on the Mechanical Turk.

After Thursday the Turk went into an unstableness, from too many people checking it out. Today it has mostly recovered. And there are literally 10's of thousands of HIT's for us little humans to complete. The only ones posted so far are automative description writing and feature points. And the wonderful Blockview adjustments, which are just plain fun to do, despite being only 3 cents per an adjustment.

HITS: 515
