MTurk funds to annotate your egocentric dataset
MTurk funds to annotate your egocentric dataset – EPIC@CVPR2020 workshop
Thanks to the generous donation from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk and
Augmented AI (A2I) teams, we are pleased to offer a novel opportunity
to generate new data related to egocentric vision.
As part of the 6th International workshop on Egocentric Perception,
Interaction and Computing (EPIC@CVPR2020), to be held in Seattle
Washington on 15th June, we are making a call for proposals to create
new public data and/or annotations useful for egocentric visual
Egocentric visual perception concerns imagery captured from a
platform, human or artificial, that senses the world from an
outward-facing perspective. Examples include the EPIC Kitchens dataset
or data from robotic platforms interacting with the environment.
Proposals may consider annotating newly collected data or using
existing data that has not been annotated in the proposed way.
Importantly, any data that is produced with the funds must be made
publicly available to further support research into egocentric
We invite up to 3 page proposals covering the following:
1) Summary. Summary of proposal.
2) What's new and Why? What is new about this data/annotation and
why it will be of use to the community.
3) How Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) will be used. Describe what
MTurkers will be asked to do in as much detail as possible including
how you plan to handle response ambiguity and data quality. You can
also reference as evidence any existing datasets that authors have
already released and that used AMT.
4) Impact. Potential impact of the new data.
5) Storage. Where the new data would be stored.
6) Timings. When the data would be made publicly available (estimate
days after completing the AMT phase).
7) License. Describe any license that is expected to be attached to
the data. We are looking to fund work that is as permissive as
possible for research purposes so as to help the community.
8) Confirmation. Statement confirming that the authors of the proposal
have the permission to release any collected data and that the data
will be released shortly after annotation/collection.
9) Funds. Total funds requested in USD.
10) Names and affiliation. Of those responsible for the proposal
indicating a named principal person who will also serve as
