Abstract

Amazon's Mechanical Turk (AMT) service is becoming increasingly popular in Natural Language Processing (NLP) research. In this poster, we report our findings in using AMT to annotate biomedical text extracted from clinical trial descriptions with three entity types: medical condition, medication, and laboratory test. We also describe our observations on AMT workers' annotations.
