- Title - Phrase Detectives: the First Three Years
- Abstract - Phrase Detectives, one of the first games-with-a-purpose for corpus annotation (www.phrasedetectives.org) went officially online on December 1st 2008, and one of its very first presentations in front of an NLP audience took place at the first edition of the "People's Web Meets NLP" workshop in Singapore in 2009. The option of annotating Italian documents was added in 2010, and a Facebook version went live in January 2012. Although the project that funded its creation ended in September 2009, the game has stayed very much alive, in fact it is getting more active all the time - we recently passed the 11,000 players mark and are about to reach 200,000 words of fully annotated documents, with a goal of annotating at least 1 million. In the talk I will discuss recent developments and analyze the results so far in terms of quality and quantity of annotated data and annotation costs.
