Transcript of Amazon Mechanical Turk: Getting started
Turk Workforce Scalability Human Intelligence What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?
How can I use it?
What value can it help drive for my business?
How do I get started... Mechanical Turk is a marketplace to get work done.
Shift human-intensive, routine tasks from permanent/temporary/outsourcing staff to a global, scalable, on-demand Workforce. * Process data that technology cannot process alone...by combining the needed intelligence or human power + algorithmic compute power. * As Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides access to scalable computing power, Mechanical Turk provides access to scalable human power / intelligence. Scale in-line with workload, paying for what you use. * Achieve fast, accurate results without long term contracts or minimum commitments, helping to turn fixed costs into variable. Enterprises use Mechanical Turk for 2 primary use cases:
1. Data Training (i.e. quickly develop large sets of training data to help train your algorithms)
2. Data Collection (i.e. categorization, moderation, transcription, tagging/annotation, cleansing/deduping, validation, digitization, augmentation, research, survey, content authoring, translation, sentiment analysis, more). Enterprises are already shifting
