Call for participation – upper-level undergraduates and graduate students!
The Computational Design Lab is working on investigating how language models can support technical explanations. We are looking for students of all levels in economics who can help us benchmark the performance of our language models.
This would involve simple tasks like evaluating and generating sentences related to economics that would follow a template. (i.e. For example, complete the sentence: Housing bubbles cause ___, and you would be given a Google sheet of 150 sentences.) We can pay people for their time at a rate of $20 per hour spent on generation of ideas for as long as it takes to finish the task.
We expect that after receiving the instructions through email, the task will take no more than 3-4 hours over the course of 1 week (which is flexible between August 16th and August 31st). If you are interested, please fill out this form. Additionally, please feel free to pass this message along to other upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.
