Application of Just-Noticeable Difference in Quality as Environment Suitability Test for Crowdsourcing Speech Quality Assessment Task [article]

Babak Naderi, Sebastian Möller
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In a laboratory experiment, participants performed this JNDQ test with different listening devices in different listening environments, including a silent room according to ITU-T Rec.  ...  In this paper, we propose a new Just Noticeable Difference of Quality (JNDQ) test as a remote screening method for assessing the suitability of the work environment for participating in speech quality  ...  for performing a speech quality assessment test at that point of time.  ...

Beyond monetary incentives: experiments in paid microtask contests modelled as continuous-time markov chains [article]

Oluwaseyi Feyisetan, Elena Simperl
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We compare the results against a control condition in which the same annotation task was completed on CrowdFlower without a time or contest constraint.  ...  Our analysis focuses on a particular type of incentive, contests, as a means to apply crowdsourcing in near-real-time scenarios, in which requesters need labels quickly.  ...  Just like most empirical research in paid microtask crowdsourcing, none of the experiments considered temporal effects.  ...

Acquiring Structured Temporal Representation via Crowdsourcing: A Feasibility Study

Yuchen Zhang, Nianwen Xue
2019 Proceedings of the Eighth Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics (*  
Temporal Dependency Trees are a structured temporal representation that represents temporal relations among time expressions and events in a text as a dependency tree structure.  ...  In this paper, we introduce a method to crowdsource temporal dependency tree annotations, and show that this representation is intuitive and can be collected with high accuracy and agreement through crowdsourcing  ...  Following standard crowdsourcing quality control, we perform a qualifying test on both annotation tasks.  ...
