Join us on September 30th to learn more about how organizations are using crowdsourcing to get more from their data. Experts from Amazon and Crowdflower, a Mechanical Turk Partner, will host a webinar providing an overview of crowdsourcing along with a real example of how YP.com (formerly Yellowpages) is able to leverage the crowd to improve the quality of their search results.
This session is ideal for individuals who are new to and interested in learning about crowdsourcing. Attendees will walk away understanding:
- The basics of crowdsourcing
- What "microtasking" means
- The kinds of business problems crowdsourcing can solve
- How YP.com uses crowdsourcing to achieve higher data standards.
Participants in the webinar will also be eligible for a complimentary data pilot program in which CrowdFlower will take 1,000 rows of your data and show you how the crowd can enhance it.
