Getting a Crowd to Work for You: For Pay or Play?
    Monday March 12, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Courtyard Marriott (Brazos) (300 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    Crowdsourcing companies like CrowdFlower have access to more than two million contributors to get real work done, meanwhile companies like Kaggle can tap into the world's best data scientists to call upon their intellectual property to solve real world challenges. So what makes this crowd work? Is it money or something greater?Today, workers are willing to do real work for virtual compensation just as much as they are willing to work for cold-hard cash. In this presentation Lukas Biewald, Founder of CrowdFlower, and Anthony Goldbloom, Founder of Kaggle, discuss the merging incentives of the crowd worker. What is the essential driving force for workers to accomplish tasks for real or virtual work? What does the crowdsourcing worker want more in exchange for their work- real or virtual compensation?
