What is Amazon Mechanical Turk?
Last updated: 2020-10-30
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 tasks posted by Requesters:
- Localization and transcription services
- Audio editing
- Information gathering tasks (surveys)
- Machine learning
