Hi all,

First of all, apologies if this is not the correct place for a job offer. If so, please let me know!

I work for a crowdsourcing company called DefinedCrowd that operates in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Speech and Language technology, and we are urgently looking for native speakers of Swedish. We usually contract students, but other people are free to apply as well. I thought it would be very easy to find people for this job, but due to its nature it's been more difficult than expected. Let me give you a quick description of the work: we need data to train models so that we can automatically classify sites. For this particular project, we are talking about the adult domain – in other words, porn. The main task will likely be (for somewhere around 600-1000 sites):

  • Clicking on a link provided by us to visit a site
  • Taking a look at said site and indicating on our platform if the site is safe, medium or high risk (the exact definition of those categories will be provided at the start of the project)
  • Possibly copying some keywords from said site to our platform

We need 3 or 4 people:
  • One person as a central contact, who’ll provide in a first stage a list of localized adult related keywords, help us create a “gold set” (a list of about 50 sites for which we know the correct classification)
  • If the first person participates in the main task, 2 more people to go through the entire list
  • If the first person doesn’t participate in the main task, 3 people to go through the entire list – that being said, probably not all 3 people will have to go through each entry – if the first two people agree, no third evaluation is necessary.

The work will start soon, most likely next week. The total workload for the classification task should be less than 8 hours. If you are interested or know somebody who might be, please let me know ASAP. We'll discuss payment via mail.
