Can you outsource CRM to the crowd?
Distributed Knowledge

I recently spoke to John Bernier from Best Buy, the discussion about Twelpforce as a highly innovative approach to real-time customer service to learn more about the opportunities for crowdsourcing customer service. More recently I interviewed Gioacchino La Vecchia, Chairman and CEO and a co-Founder of CrowdEngineering who, through his CrowdForce platform, is a forerunner in the development of enterprise-class Social CRM solutions. It would seem that international recognitions by industry analysts Gartner and Altimeter, who awarded the accolades of “cool vendor” and “the one to watch” in Social CRM, preceeding last week’s announcement that CrowdEngineering had closed a $4m Series A Round the crowd may have a big role to play in servicing itself!

IBM join tech and crowd to digitize Japan National Library
Distributed Knowledge

Combining technology and intelligence of the crowd, IBM managed to solve the major problem for digitizing the archives of the National Diet Library of Japan: the identification of more than 10,000 characters of the Japanese language. The prototype technology, created by IBM Research, allows full-text digitization of Japanese literature to be realized through expansive recognition of Japanese characters.  and enabling users to collaboratively review and correct language characters, script and structure.

Aside from ensuring quality recognition of Japanese characters, IBM researchers aimed to optimize the amount of time needed to review and verify the accuracy of the digitized texts. By introducing unique collaborative tools via crowdsourcing, the technology allows many users to pour through the texts and make corrections at a much higher rate of productivity and efficiency. Additionally, the full-text digitization system is designed to promote future international collaborations and standardization of libraries around the world.
