Pushing the limits of mechanical turk

Luke Gottlieb, Jaeyoung Choi, Pascal Kelm, Thomas Sikora, Gerald Friedland
2012 Proceedings of the ACM multimedia 2012 workshop on Crowdsourcing for multimedia - CrowdMM '12  
In this article we review the methods we have developed for finding Mechanical Turk participants for the manual annotation of the geo-location of random videos from the web.  ...  This task is different from a standard Mechanical Turk task in that it is difficult for both humans and machines, whereas a standard Mechanical Turk task is usually easy for humans and difficult or impossible  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to acknowledge Howard Lei for his aid in this work.  ...
