...the ESP Game, described in this talk, is an enjoyable online game -- many people play over 40 hours a week -- and when people play, they help label images on the Web with descriptive keywords. These keywords can be used to significantly improve the accuracy of image search. People play the game not because they want to help, but because they enjoy it. -- Luis von Ahn, Game Creator

im just wondering if you saw
the video about this process
and how we get to be unpaid
September 1, 2006
You have 90 seconds for you and a partner to agree on words to describe as many images as possible. At first you think, “90 seconds? That’s nothing.” So you play. And you play again. And then you look up and it’s 4pm and you’re almost on the leaderboard, so you play a little more. I beg of you–stay the hell away from this game. For god’s sake, I mean it. And if you beat my record of eight images in 90 seconds, please don’t post it here to brag. Not even a little bit.
(Note, this game is inspired by the ESP Game created by Luis von Ahn, and I believe Google licensed the game from Carnegie Mellon.)
