What is MTurk?

Launched in 2005, Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowd work platform, owned and operated by Amazon. Major companies like Google, Microsoft, Pinterest, Amazon itself and a long list of others post tasks on the platform. Academic institutions and Individuals also post tasks on MTurk. An army of independent workers get paid to complete these varying tasks, on a per task basis. This is where you come in.

Example MTurk Task Scenario:
YouTube needs to keep its site content and community safe, so YouTube posts a moderation task on MTurk. Here, thousands of videos are manually reviewed by workers on MTurk who look for specified elements, such as violence, profanity etc. Workers label the videos accordingly, and are paid a fixed amount per video they moderate and label. This is only one example out of thousands, as task types vary widely.
