Webmardi - "Artificial Artificial Intelligence" with Amazon Mechanical Turk

Bernhard Schindholzer of http://userfeedbackhq.com/ talks about his experiences with Amazon's Mechanical Turk and other crowdsourcing services, which he employed to build a better OCR "algorithm" for a BlackBerry business card scanner app.

Amazon Mechanical Turk allows programmers to use an API to access a global on-demand workforce to perform micro-tasks that are difficult to perform with computers but are very simple for humans.

From screening of offensive images to searching for missed sailers in millions of satelite images, this "artificial artificial intelligence" potentially solves a range of problems.
