Crowdsourcing Experiments, Mechanical Turk, ‘n stuffPosted: May 25, 2012
The Economist has a piece on how crowdsourcing and tools like Mechanical Turk are transforming science: “the roar of the crowd.” Here’s the blog dedicated to help scientists set up their experiments on Mechanical Turk, Experimental Turk. I’m guessing it is a matter of time before some strategy-related experiments get done on Mechanical Turk – here’s probably a few such pieces (well, just a very loose search of mechanical turk+smj+mgtsci).
- This appears to be PhD Student collecting dissertation data via a decision-making task on Mechanical Turk.
- Here’s a Cornell marketing scholar collecting data.
- Lots of the “game” tasks appear to be experiments.
