My name is Ilaria Mastroianni and I am part of the Lionbridge AI Recruitment Team.
I found your email address on your website and I am contacting you because we are currently conducting a video research study for Sign Languages and I would like to ask for your help in reaching your community members.
As the purpose of our study is to improve Artificial Intelligence abilities to recognize a sign versus a gesture, for example to focus a camera on a person that speaks in a conference, we aim at having both native signers from the Deaf community, and proficient signers (i.e. interpreters, CODA, PODC) to train the AI to be more accurate.
Participants will have to interact with 3 to 7 other study participants in 4 online conversations via Zoom using Sign Language. Conversations will be recorded on a laptop or personal computer equipped with web camera. Each conversation should be for a duration of 5 minutes. The task can be done from home or any other quiet place.
Compensation: Each participant who successfully completes the task will receive $40 either via PayPal or direct bank transfer.
Duration: The estimated total duration of the task is 50 minutes, including preparation time, 20 minutes of recording, and data uploading.
Start date: Immediate
End date: February
To sign up: https://fs30.formsite.com/LB2014/r8jntyevyt/index.html
Once the registration form has been completed and participants have been selected, our Production Team will contact them with all the necessary instructions.
We are looking for few hundreds of participants for this study and we are offering a referral bonus of $10 for each referred person who successfully completes our study.
If you are interested in a closer collaboration and receiving our bonus for your association, we can provide you with a unique link to share with your participants.
I do remain at your disposal for any further information you may need and wish you a pleasant day.
