Research Assistant for AI Language Data Collection

22nd January to 26th January
Participate in live research by rating words according to their degree of difficulty and suggesting simpler alternatives.
This activity is offered as part of Future Me Week - five days of exciting opportunities to develop your skills, deepen understanding, gain experience and take steps towards an exciting Future You.

This opportunity is part of an ongoing research project to train AI systems that simplify language for international communication. You will gain insight into research and data collection methods and have an impact in a cutting-edge and exciting field.

You can take part any time during future me week, spending up to 10 hours working on the research project. More information will be provided post-sign-up and your time spent on this work can be flexible.

You will be given 300 sentences, each with a single word marked in that sentence. For each sentence, you will be asked to do two tasks: 1) score the word on a 5-point scale according to how difficult you find it to understand. 2) suggest some easier alternatives that would fit into the sentence. More detailed guidance will be provided. You can complete this activity twice to gain double the RISE points.
