An iPhone App That Predicts When Bus Will Arrive
Distributed Knowledge

Transit riders in Pittsburgh will soon be able to get the answer for the most common question for who waits at a bus stop: Where's the bus? Thanks to Tiramisu, a new pretty straightforward iPhone application developed at Carnegie Mellon University, riders will be able to share arrival times with each other.

By using crowdsourcing to share information, anyone waiting at a bus or T stop with an iPhone can see which buses or light rail vehicles are due to arrive next and, thanks to the signals from riders already aboard, get an idea of how long they have to wait.

Tiramisu — "pick me up" in Italian — makes it easy for riders to use their iPhones to signal the location and occupancy level of the Port Authority of Allegheny County  bus they are riding, in real-time.

Luis von Ahn wants to translate the web — all of it. To call him ambitious is an understatement. In a TED Talk that was originally uploaded to YouTube in April 2011, von Ahn introduced Duolingo, a crowdsourced translation project, and boldly proclaimed that with one million users, the site could help to convert the entirety of Wikipedia into Spanish in 80 hours. Free of charge. Even with a slightly more modest prediction of 100,000 users, the task would be completed within five weeks. What von Ahn, an entrepreneur and computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was proposing, and what Duolingo is now beginning to offer in a private beta, is a crowdsourced translation service that provides every volunteer with a service of their own. What he envisions is a tool that will not just revolutionize the Internet, but education itself.
