Another Linguistic Corpus Collection Game by Bob Carpenter
From the post:
Johan Bos and his crew at University of Groningen have a new suite of games aimed at linguistic data data collection. You can find them at:
Wordrobe is currently hosting four games. Twins is aimed at part-of-speech tagging, Senses is for word sense annotation, Pointers for coref data, and Names for proper name classification.
One of the neat things about Wordrobe is that they try to elicit some notion of confidence by allowing users to “bet” on their answers.
Used here with a linguistic data collection but there is no reason why such games would not work in other contexts.
For instance, in an enterprise environment seeking to collect information for construction of a topic map. An alternative to awkward interviews where you try to elicit intuitive knowledge from users.
Create a game using their documents and give meaningful awards, extra vacation time for instance.
