This demo presents TickTalkTurk, a tool that can assist task requesters in quickly deploying crowdsourcing tasks in a customizable conversational worker interface. The conversational worker interface can convey task instructions, deploy microtasks, and gather worker input in a dialogue-based workflow. The interface is implemented as a Web-based application, which makes it compatible with popular crowdsourcing platforms. The tool we developed is demonstrated through two microtask crowdsourcing examples with different task types. Results reveal that our conversational worker interface is capable of better engaging workers and analyzing workers performance.
