PYBOSSA is the ultimate crowdsourcing framework to analyze or enrich data that can't be processed by machines alone.

PYBOSSA is a free, open-source crowdsourcing and micro-tasking platform developed by Scifabric. It enables people to create and run projects that utilise online assistance in performing tasks that require human cognition such as image classification, transcription, geocoding and more. PYBOSSA is there to help researchers, civic hackers and developers to create projects where anyone around the world with some time, interest and an internet connection can contribute.

PYBOSSA is different to existing efforts:

  • It's a 100% open-source
  • Unlike, say, “mechanical turk” style projects, PYBOSSA is not designed to handle payment or money — it is designed to support volunteer-driven projects.
  • It's designed as a platform and framework for developing deploying crowd-sourcing and microtasking project rather than being a crowd-sourcing project itself. Individual crowd-sourcing projects are written as simple snippets of Javascript and HTML which are then deployed on a PYBOSSA instance (such as CrowdCrafting.org). This way one can easily develop custom projects while using the PYBOSSA platform to store your data, manage users, and handle workflow.

You can read more about the architecture in the PYBOSSA Documentation and follow the step-by-step tutorial to create your own projects.
