Each task contains a number of videos. The videos are divided into short fragments (about 5 sec). For each fragment you have to select emotions of the interviewed person. After completing markup for all fragments of all videos in the task you can start another task. Your markup gets verified and if all is well you get paid for the task.
Humans can recognize emotions. Computers can't. Under the hood you're teaching artificial intelligence what we look like when we are happy, confused, surprised, etc. Contribute to neuroscience and help Neurodata Lab get one step closer to development of a system that can recognize and interpret human emotions.
