What Crowdsourcing Tells Us About Cognition: The Case of Anaphora
Massimo Poesio, Essex University
Crowdsourcing is usually seen primarily as a inexpensive and quick way of creating large resources for a variety of AI tasks. However, our work with Phrase Detectives, a game-with-a-purpose designed to collect data about anaphora, suggests that collecting large numbers of judgments about very large amounts of data also tells us a lot about the extent to which human subjects agree or disagree about the interpretation of such data. In the talk I will introduce Phrase Detectives and discuss our results and their implications.
