Is Amazon's Mechanical Turk a Failure?


Stumbled upon this article via Google. I see that it was originally posted back in 2007. I think it’s safe to say that your prediction was way off, seeing as MTurk is still around and is a huge success for Amazon!


yes its true, looking at their pay per task, it seems amt want to hire low-wage people from around the globe. Again task approval and consistency of a job are not in turker’s hand, but more on the person who is looking for the job done. No matter how well you perform, it is likely that you get blocked because of some little errors and misunderstandings. Choozurmobile
