Plotting Data: The choice of the annotator
The Choice of the Annotator is a choose-your-own-adventure game which addresses the hidden labour happening behind machine learning datasets. The videos within this game are from the 20BN Something-Something dataset. They act as brief encounters with the workers. Sometimes they show a lot of care for their recording, while others are as fast as possible.
Taking the perspective of the platform worker, the player has to deal with some of the conditions the platform imposes.
