Full Description


BTS is a platform to test various peer prediction mechanisms on crowdsourcing platforms.

Researchers wishing to use the platform can supply a list of questions, create small HTML templates for the UI and specify the payment mechanism. BTS does the rest.


  • Each agent sees a different random permutation of the questions
  • Multiple agents may work on the same question. Payment mechanism may rely on all answers in that round
  • GUI to set up the experiment (beta feature)
  • Built using the Meteor framework with MongoDB
  • Export data from the experiments in a CSV format.
