To help advance research on crowdsourcing at scale, CrowdFlower and Google are sharing two new, large challenge datasets for multi-class classification. Both datasets are available for immediate download. To make it easy to participate, we have provided multiple formats of the data, and pointers to open source software online that is available to get started.
All participants are expected to submit a paper (up to 4 pages) describing one's method and preliminary results on shared task metrics, and to present a poster at the workshop. Final results will be announced at the workshop, with prize money awarded to the best performer(s), as well as recognition during the workshop and in our workshop report.
Shared task participants are also invited to participate in workshop discussion throughout the day.
