Amazon's Mechanical Turk

"What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?

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.

Amazon Mechanical Turk is based on the idea that there are still many things that human
beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo or
video, performing data de-duplication, transcribing audio recordings, or researching data details.
Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce
(which is time consuming, expensive, and difficult to scale) or have gone undone.
What is a HIT?

A Human Intelligence Task, or HIT, is a question that needs an answer. A HIT represents a
single, self-contained task that a Worker can work on, submit an answer, and collect a reward
for completing."

spending money, or if you simply love helping others while making some extra cash alongside,
this is the place for you. Joining Microworkers as a Worker does not mean you are employed by

ShortTask.com

"ShortTask has subdivided its working into two categories -- solvers and seekers. The solver
works on individual tasks, earns in dollars, and gets paid only once the seeker approves the
work. The seeker assigns individual tasks, gains access to thousands of solvers, and pays only
when satisfied.

ShortTask provides a common platform for both solvers as well as seekers. Once the seeker
assigns a new Task, the solver can immediately work on it and get paid if the seeker approves
the Task. This is actually as simple as it sounds!
