Description The API allows programmers to use the Amazon mechanical turk API. Three types of people interact with Amazon Mechanical Turk:

  • Requesters, who creates and pays for the work done by Workers. They can create and advertise work using the Amazon Mechanical Turk command line interface or the Requester User Interface and thereby not need developers
  • Workers, who find and accept work advertised by Requesters
  • Developers, who create Amazon Mechanical Turk applications that Requesters and Workers use.

Not everyone is admitted to being a "turk". I was flatly refused. Quote:


Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk, We have completed our review of your Amazon Mechanical Turk Worker Account. We regret to inform you that you will not be permitted to work on Mechanical Turk.

Our account review criteria are proprietary and we cannot disclose the reason why an invitation to complete registration has been denied. If our criteria for invitation changes, you may be invited to complete registration in the future.
