Research data collection

Work with the Phrase Detectives game continues and we have just collected over 1 Million annotation decisions, a collaborative effort of over 1900 hours. The crowdsourcing methodology has been shown to produce high-quality results and we are hoping to extend this project to new annotation tasks.
