Work for Google with the Image Labeler

Posted on September 5, 2006. Filed under: Google |

Google’s newly-launched Image Labeler game puts interested users like you to work improving their image search results. Volunteer 90 seconds of your time and Google will pair you up with a random partner, then:

You and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner’s label, you’ll earn some points and move on to the next image until time runs out.

Interesting to see Google turn tasks into gameplay. This is definitely more of a time-waster than a time-saver, but it’s more productive than Tetris or backgammon in that “giving back to the community” Wikipedia kind of way.
