Let's Play: Google Image Labeler

Google is brilliant to build a game that helps them better classify images on the Web using the humans who love their service. It's a fun game - but very much building a better Web.

From Google:

How does it work?
You'll be randomly paired with a partner who's online and using the feature. Over a two-minute period, you and your partner will:

  • View the same set of images.
  • Provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see.
  • Receive points when your label matches your partner's label. The number of points will depend on how specific your label is.
  • See more images until time runs out.


After time expires, you can explore the images you've seen and the websites where those images were found. And we'll show you the points you've earned throughout the session.
