Mechanical Turk is an online work processing center created by Amazon that acts as a medium between "Workers" and "Requester s" who advertise, Human intelligence tasks or HIT’s that can be completed by anyone in the general US public who is over 18 and has access to a computer and the internet through American servers.
Although the cite was originally designed by Amazon as helpful way of finding cheap contract workers to delete duplicate sails pages, many other uses for the cite have since surfaced. These new and creative ways to use the cite have helped reduce costs and time investment for all sorts of tasks that can be performed online.
