How Amazon Mechanical Turk works
Amazon Mechanical Turk is the biggest microtask website.
You get hired to complete what Amazon calls Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs):
- Data annotation for machine learning
- Localization and transcription
- Audio editing
Each worker is rated for quality of work. The higher your score, the more likely you are to land “high-paying” jobs.
- Salary: 4$ per hour (in average).
- Job rating: there are no reviews.
- Sign up: on their website.
Some jobs may require you to complete a qualifier. That could mean taking a quick test from MTurk to validate your skills.
