John Wiley & Sons, Feb 15, 2013 - Technology & Engineering - 360 pages
Provides an insightful and practical introduction to crowdsourcing as a means of rapidly processing speech data
Intended for those who want to get started in the domain and learn how to set up a task, what interfaces are available, how to assess the work, etc. as well as for those who already have used crowdsourcing and want to create better tasks and obtain better assessments of the work of the crowd. It will include screenshots to show examples of good and poor interfaces; examples of case studies in speech processing tasks, going through the task creation process, reviewing options in the interface, in the choice of medium (MTurk or other) and explaining choices, etc.
