Folksonomy and the ESP Game (nate's notes)

nate's notes: Folksonomy and the ESP Game:

The ESP Game is a Java-based game that facilitates two people viewing a single image at the same time. You can read about how to play, but basically two people are looking at the same image. They both type labels describing the picture. When they've both identified the same label, a match is declared and both players earn points. The points are the reward to the humans -- the high-quality, double-human-confirmed keyword/label associated with an image is the reward to the system that CMU is building.
