CloudFactory Launches CloudFactory 2.0 Platform After Acquiring SpeakerText & Humanoid
CloudFactory, a Cloud Labor platform for creating work opportunities for people in developing nations
Cloud Labor

Developed by two idealistic Canadians and two open-minded Americans, the Cloud Labor platform CloudFactory, lauched this week in San Francisco, is an ambitious project based in Kathmandu, Nepal, with an objective to bring new opportunities of work to people in developing countries to help fight poverty.

Crowdsourcing.org had the opportunity to interview Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development of CloudFactory while he was in San Francisco for the launch of the platform at TechCrunch's Disrupt conference. We learned that CloudFactory is following a similar model to established providers such as CrowdFlower, Microtask and others. CloudFactory allows businesses to design virtual assembly lines for all types of digital work such as inputting data from handwritten forms, extracting data from images, flagging bad content and categorizing things. However, “The main difference between CloudFactory and its competitors is its free self-serve toolset that allows users to set-up their own workflows” Tom Puskarich, VP Business Development, informed us.

Crowdsourcing.org first had the opportunity to speak with CloudFactory co-founder Tom Puskarich a few months ago at the cloud labor platform's launch where Puskarich was in attendance with fellow co-founder Mark Sears. Now that CloudFactory's digital assembly line model has been up and running for a few months — and with a new website — we followed up with Puskarich to see how it's going and how a factory in the cloud can help any business, even a pool cleaner in California.

CrowdConf2011 – The Industry Event

In just over a week from now, approximately six hundred people will be on their way to Mission Bay, San Francisco to attend CrowdConf2011. Amongst the hundreds of attendees will be a formidable line up of speakers, representing many of the crowdsourcing industry's best known companies, business executives and thought leaders.

Last year's inaugural event was memorialized for the team behind Crowdsourcing.org as both the first significant event dedicated to the subject of crowdsourcing as well as the day we launched the site. Following last year’s success, CrowdConf2011 has been meticulously orchestrated to provide a platform for many of the leading figures within the crowdsourcing movement and to provide the broadest possible coverage of the application of crowdsourcing within social and commercial enterprises as well as the public sector.
