"Cleaning and verifying our data has never been easier— thanks to Mechanical Turk's on-demand workforce." —Channel Intelligence

Clean Your Data

Have data that needs to be verified? A database that needs additional attributes? Thousands of pieces of data that need to be collected, normalized, or deduplicated? A new data-cleansing algorithm that needs to be trained? Mechanical Turk can help you clean your data quickly and efficiently.

Data Verification, Entry, and Collection

Ask Mechanical Turk Workers to verify information via phone or web so that you have accurate and more relevant content for your customers. Examples might include business listing verification.

    Example Tasks:
  • Verify if a phone number for a business is still operational.
  • Validate a restaurant's location and proximity to other services.
  • Get the hours of operation of the business center in a hotel.
  • Find the ticker symbol and Twitter handle for a company.
  • Identify contact information for press representatives at specific companies.

Data Cleansing, Normalization, and Deduplication

Maintaining accurate data to run your business is a never-ending task, especially if you have multiple data sources. Use Mechanical Turk to normalize your data, eliminate duplicates, and resolve conflicts. Human intelligence can greatly improve your data quality beyond what can be achieved with machine algorithms alone.

    Example Tasks:
  • Identify and correct duplicates.
  • Normalize content fields to conform to a uniform format.
  • Correct spelling errors.
  • Find missing data or information.

Algorithm Training

With Mechanical Turk you can quickly develop large sets of training data to train your data-cleansing and normalization algorithms.
