This page provides a list of work from home projects made available by Appen. The projects’ names and information were gathered from multiple resources, and this is not an exhaustive list. Some of the projects listed here may not be available anymore, but this list is updated frequently to include the most current and active jobs.

Appen projects are a great work from home opportunity for beginners as they rarely require any previous experience. These projects generally belong to either one of the following categories: search engine evaluation, social media evaluation, microwork, transcription or data entry. In some cases, multiple categories may apply to the same project.

How to Apply

To apply for these projects, the first step is to register or sign in to Appen Connect (for longer-term projects) and/or Appen Contributor Portal (for shorter-term projects known as micro-tasks). If the project becomes available for you to apply, it will appear in your projects list on these platforms.

There are many factors that come into play to determine whether a project is available for you or not. For example, your location, project status (e.g. active or closed), the projects you currently participate in, your performance history, etc.

Make sure to constantly monitor project availability on these platforms as it can fluctuate considerably from time to time. Also, make sure to develop a history of high-quality work and good performance as it will increase your chances of being invited for the most interesting, highest paying projects.

Since you are looking for information on Appen projects, you may also like to register on these other websites that offer work from home opportunities.

Description

Contribute to our video collection and help researchers in the AI community to auto-detect deepfake videos

What is a deepfake?

It’s a process where existing images and videos are combined and can be used to create fake news and hoaxes.

The project:
Appen is seeking smartphone users for a large-scale video collection project. In this collection, users will be instructed to use their devices to take videos, speaking on different topics in a wide variety of recording environments and recording angles. If possible, you can include others in your video – more details can be found when you sign on!
The video collected will be manipulated according to deepfake methods. These modified videos will then be used in a research competition by the AI community aimed to identify and detect deepfaked videos.
This is important work to combat damaging representations in the media. Help us by joining this collection today. Each video only needs to be 1 minute long.

Requirements:

  • Resident in the USA
  • 18 years +
  • Able to take 18 videos on a smartphone

Description

Via Appen:

Looking for young French-Canadian native speakers for a voice recording project! 

For over 20 years Appen has worked with companies around the world to improve their speech and machine learning-based solutions by providing high quality, human-annotated data.  

Are you interested in having your child or teen participate in a fun 1-hour recording project? Please see here how!

The main goal is to enable machines to better interact with French-Canadian children of different age groups and to ensure that children’s speech gets supported by the latest technologies.  

To do so, we would like to invite you as a parent or legal representative to be part of this initiative.  

Please find below more details about this project.  

Requirements & Task Overview:   

  • French-Canadian native speakers.
  • Must be between 3-15 years old.
  • Your child would read and record 160 short phrases in French-Canadian on a web-based application at the comfort of your home in a quiet environment.
  • Duration: 45 to 90 minutes (depending on child’s age).
  • PaymentUSD 30 (plus bonus depending on child’s age group). Upon completion and after your recordings have passed quality control. Payment is made via your Appen Connect payment account. Please ensure to register a payment account in Appen Connect so that we can send you further details regarding our project if your child is eligible.
  • Have access to an Android phone/tablet or PC/Mac/laptop (iPhone or iPad will not work) and a good internet connection.
  • The only personal information we collect from your children is their age and gender.
  • Please note: This task can be done once only. Repeated participation is not allowed. Please do not register your interest again if your children have already participated in this project.  

NEXT STEP: 

If you would like for your children to be part of this project, please submit your application below.

  • We will provide you with everything your children need to be able to complete the task: a parent consent form, an access to an online application, predefined short phrases to read out. Your children don’t need to record the task all at once, we allow you time so your child can complete the recordings in several short sessions if you prefer.   

In this era of rapid technological advancements, it is our duty and responsibility to make sure that these developments are available to everyone. We therefore hope that you will take this opportunity to join hands with us and work towards the promotion of French-Canadian language on a global front. If you are interested to know more about children’s speech recognition, please read this article on our blog: Helping Machines Understand Child Speech

Detailed instructions will be provided once we receive your application and they are assigned to the project.

Description

The goal of this project is to improve video conference experience.

The chances are you have been using one of the video conferences tools to communicate during this pandemic. Appen has been tasked by a leading technology company to create a video dataset that will help them in developing better video conference experience.

In this project, participants will film themselves using laptop and smartphone cameras as if one is in a video conference call. The goal of these videos is to simulate real life scenarios of how people would make calls these days, e.g. having a call with pets moving around.

Recordings will need to be carried out with specific ambient settings/scenarios provided by Appen. A maximum of 8 videos will be done per participant, 4 on laptop and 4 on smartphone. Example of a scenario: “Having a call with your face/head looking somewhere else (other than the camera)”

As the project progresses over the next couple of months, completed scenarios will be removed and new ones added in; so it’s recommended that you check back regularly to see if there are any you feel you could help to complete.

Project name: Naneum / Neman

Description

Projects Neman and Naneum are focused on improving image-to-text recognition through AI technology. They are available in many different languages.

There is a list of pre-defined textual content categories (e.g. book covers, product labels, street signs, menus, etc.) for which they ask participants to provide image data. The collected images are then used to train the AI models.

The outcome of this project is having devices that are more effective in transferring digital images with text into texts automatically. 

The difference between these two projects seems to be related to the list of textual content categories that are used.

From Appen website:

Appen is helping a leading technology client to develop the next generation AI technology of image-to-text recognition in certain languages.

The ultimate goal of this project is to allow devices to transfer digital image/photos with text into texts automatically. Image sources collected from this project will be used for research and device training purposes.

  • Task: Provide image data of textual content from the required categories (documents, product labels, book covers and spines, and documents with tables) to help the selected languages’ image-to-text AI technology.
  • Quantity: There is No limit on the number of images that you can send, you need to take photos for documents, product labels,  book covers and spines, and documents with tables
  • You will receive an incentive for each accepted image, the amount of incentive is listed under task/default at the end of the next column.
  • Please note that the incentives mentioned for tier bonus were for limited times only and it is not applicable after 15th May 2020.
  • Duration: Approximately continuous 5 weeks or more (depend on the collection rate).

Project name: Speech Collection (Fall / Fawn / Golden / Escabanada / Shelley)

Description

The Speech Collection project is available to participants of different age groups, from under 18-year-olds to people who are 65 years or older (baby boomers).

Different names are used to denominate this project, depending on the language, age group, and region that it refers to.

For example, the baby boomer version of the speech collection project is called Project Fall (sometimes referred to as Fawn) for the English language participants, Project Golden for Germans, Project Escanaba for Spanish, and Project Shelley for French speakers. For the 18-years-or-younger versions of these projects, they add the word minor in the project name. For example, Escanaba Minor for US Spanish speakers.

The participant is required to create and record commands that they would normally use to talk to a conversational bot (e.g. Siri and Alexa).

They must follow the context provided in the task instructions, and the goal is to have the bot carrying out certain activities. For example, participants may be asked to:

  • Speak trigger (wake up) phrases like “Hey Alexa!”
  • Request device actions like “Create an appointment in my calendar”
  • Ask for interactions with social media apps like “Show me Dan’s photos from yesterday”
  • Etc.
