Amazon Mechanical Turk Meet-Up

Please join us for an evening event and learn how to be successful with Amazon Mechanical Turk.

While technology continues to improve, there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo, performing data de-duplication, transcribing audio recordings or performing research. The Mechanical Turk platform enables companies to programmatically access a diverse, on-demand workforce to accomplish these tasks (and more) quickly, accurately, and at a low cost.
