I Agree To The Terms was developed by The Builders Association in collaboration with a community of microworkers, or MTurk workers, who train the algorithms that shape our online experience.
Most MTurk workers are Americans living in rural areas where jobs are scarce. MTurk workers earn from $1 to $100 a day in a vast, unregulated industry. Their assignments are repetitive, boring, maddening, and sometimes disturbing.
In this 30–45-minute online encounter, audiences will enter the “Builders Marketplace,” train with actual MTurk workers, and compete for paying jobs while being timed, rated and paid in virtual Builders Coin!
I Agree To The Terms is presented by NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, and will broadcast live from MITU580.
