What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a forum where Requesters post work as Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs). Workers complete HITs in exchange for a reward. You write, test, and publish your HIT using the Mechanical Turk developer sandbox, Amazon Mechanical Turk APIs, and AWS SDKs.

Here are some common use cases for Requesters:

  • Localization and transcription services
  • Audio editing
  • Information gathering tasks (surveys)
  • Machine learning

For other common scenarios and resources, see Implementing Amazon Mechanical Turk.
