Towards Intelligent Crowdsourcing

Always thought there would be value in intelligently directing a crowdsourcing effort. Our own experiments showed it was difficult to manage.    The below appears to point to a better means to direct the results and feed machine learning methods. Plan to attend.

The introduction of crowdsourcing was a game changer for the business world — but that was so ten years ago. It was innovative for its time. It enabled companies to outsource projects to a remote workforce (though that workforce was relatively unknown, which is kinda scary) — but crowdsourcing in its original form is flawed and inadequate. 

For example, it was never designed to provide training data for machine learning models — a highly relevant use case today as artificial intelligence (AI) becomes an increasingly large focus across industries. It was never designed to handle specialized tasks in place of in-house employees to free up time for more complex work (example: engineers offloading tasks like annotating and attributing products so they can focus on writing code), though it makes perfect sense to now use crowdsourcing that way.
