Labeling images with a computer game

L von Ahn, L Dabbish - Proceedings of the ACM CHI, 2004.
An innovative idea: a game that you play for fun, that as a side effect produces accurate labels for images on the web. If this game was played on the same scale as other moderately popular games, it would provide accurate labels for every image in Google images within six months. The game is not that widely played, but has produced 15 million labels within a couple of years.

You can play the game here: www.espgame.org.

It looks like Google has adopted this idea: it is called the Google Image Labeler.
