Description Crowdsourcing is an increasingly popular technique used to complete complex tasks or collect large amounts of data. This report documents the effort to employ crowdsourcing using the Mechanical Turk service hosted by Amazon. The task was to collect labeling data on several thousands of short videos clips as such labels would be perceived by a human. The approach proved to be viable, collecting large amounts of data in a relatively short time frame, but required specific considerations for the population of workers and impersonal medium through which data were collected. Purpose [[Has project purpose::According to Pierce & Fung (2013), The goal of this project is to generate a large number of video vignettes meant to visually demonstrate specific verbs. The project called for 48 verbs to be demonstrated,each in 10 different exemplars.

3.2 Description

Crowdsourcing is an increasingly popular technique used to complete complex tasks or collect large amounts of data. This report documents the effort to employ crowdsourcing using the Mechanical Turk service hosted by Amazon. The task was to collect labeling data on several thousands of short videos clips as such labels would be perceived by a human. The approach proved to be viable, collecting large amounts of data in a relatively short time frame, but required specific considerations for the population of workers and impersonal medium through which data were collected.

3.3 Purpose.

According to Pierce & Fung (2013), The goal of this project is to generate a large number of video vignettes meant to visually demonstrate specific verbs. The project called for 48 verbs to be demonstrated,each in 10 different exemplars. Each exemplar was filmed with 16 different setting variations, consisting of different backgrounds, camera angle, time of day,etc. This produces a total of 7680 vignettes. The vignettes are to be data points provided to system design teams as part of a larger research and development project This project included 6 variants (sub-projects) described in the Pierce & Fung, 2013 report.
