Crowdsourcing is an increasingly popu- lar, collaborative approach for acquiring annotated corpora. Despite this, reuse of corpus conversion tools and user in- terfaces between projects is still problem- atic, since these are not generally made available. This demonstration will intro- duce the new, open-source GATE Crowd- sourcing plugin, which offers infrastruc- tural support for mapping documents to crowdsourcing units and back, as well as automatically generating reusable crowd- sourcing interfaces for NLP classification and selection tasks. The entire work- flow will be demonstrated on: annotating named entities; disambiguating words and named entities with respect to DBpedia URIs; annotation of opinion holders and targets; and sentiment.
