Creating a Real-time Crowd Ready On Demand
Cloud Labor

Over just the last few years, the wait times in between assigning a task to the crowd and a cloud laborer actually getting started on it have shrunk from hours to minutes to seconds. Now research from MIT and Adobe's Advanced Technology Labs claims to have reduced the wait to milliseconds, creating for all practical purposes, a real-time crowd on demand.

Changing the Paradigm: uTest’s Model for Crowd Management
Tools

uTest announce today three community-driven programs that may represent a paradigm change in mechanisms that drive worker performance.  While the advantages of crowdsourcing to leverage a distributed virtual on-demand labor pool, to fulfill a range of tasks from simple to complex appear apparent, it seems the model is not without flaw. Numbers of staff can be ramped-up for a fee or turned off, typically without incremental cost. However, there are challenges managing a workforce that isn’t dedicated and not paid to turn up to work at 9am each day. So how do you optimize a workforce that works voluntarily?  I spoke with Matt Johnston, uTest’s CMO, who shared some insights into their leading-edge approaches for worker management in a crowdsourcing environment.

Microsoft Bing will use 3D panoramas taken by the crowd
Crowd Creativity

Quite soon users of Microsoft’s search engine Bing will have access to 3D panoramas photos taken by the crowd and shared through Gigwalk’s mobile app. This great push towards a crowdsourced initiative was made possible as a result of an agreement between the giant Microsoft and Gigwalk, a company just nine weeks old, from Mountain View, CA. The agreement was announced this week.

Gigwalk mobile app instantly connects businesses to an on-demand, tech-savvy mobile workforce (Gigwalkers) who gets paid to use their iPhone to collect, capture and report real-world data -- such as verifying a street name, photographing a menu, reporting on red-light cameras, or confirming product placements in stores -- while going about their everyday activities. They called tasks Gigs.

"By combining Gigwalk's tech-savvy mobile force with our popular Photosynth app, we're able to add immersive panoramas to Bing local search results, so people can accurately see the details of a business such as a store or restaurant, " said David Gedye, lead program manager of Bing Mobile. "Gigwalk's network delivers high-quality results, often within 24 hours, and that's hard to beat," he added.
