With the help of Toloka, we are creating technology that is empowering workers while also ensuring quality labor for the projects of academics and industry actors. Our collaborative research led us to be recognized by UNESCO as one of the 100 most impactful projects in AI. Working with Toloka has also empowered us to give crowdsourcing mini-courses at Northeastern University and the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).
In 2021, Toloka Academy organized a course for CUSO which unites 5 top Swiss universities: University of Freiburg, University of Geneve, UNIL (University of Lausanne), UNINE (University of Neuchatel) and University of Bern. It was a 3-week course for PhD students and it was centered around the crowdsourcing methodology and techniques that ensure top-quality data. By the end of the course, the participants created projects based on their academic interest.
A lot of educators come across serious issues with data sets and projects for their courses. This is why we decided to sponsor their students’ projects. Our cooperation started with a hands-on tutorial, during which we demonstrated some real cases. Then participants of the Crowd Computing Course were given an opportunity to collect and label data on Toloka free of charge. As a result, they presented several brilliant group projects.
We provide educators with learning materials that can be easily included in a course or used independently. For example, our materials are used in the Global UX course at Northeastern University. When we share our materials and expertise with faculty members, we also teach them how to apply all of that in the most efficient way.
