Play a game, improve image search

I'm currently finishing up my PhD. at FAU, but part of my research needs users to play a quick game online. Your participation in this research (about 10 minutes of your time) would be a huge help!

Have you ever taken digital photos? Have you ever tried to search for images on the Internet? Image Retrieval is an exciting and rapidly growing field. We are currently developing the next-generation of image retrieval software, but your help is needed.

The Perceptually-Relevant Image Search Machine (PRISM) is a new way to retrieve images. PRISM learns as you (and others) use the system, improving itself over time. The PRISM Game is a research experiment which transforms the PRISM interface into a fun game where players compete for the highest score by organizing related images.

You are invited to play this new game! The results of your play will allow us to thoroughly evaluate and improve the system. The PRISM Game will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. To play, go to:

Once the game is complete your score will be displayed and you will be asked to complete a very important survey on your experiences. Completing the survey is required to have your results included in the research.

PRISM is part of a dissertation underway at Florida Atlantic University. You are welcome to pass the message along and invite others to play the PRISM Game.

Thank you for supporting this FAU research!

Re: Play a game, improve image search

I just wanted to thank everyone from here who tried the game. By playing the game you are helping a research project at FAU. I can still accept results through Sunday evening. Please keep in mind that I cannot count your run unless you also complete the survey at the end.

Thanks for your help!

I just finished playing it. It took a while but anything to help another grad student out.
