Harnessing Collective Intelligence

Jon Udell hosts a conversation with Nathan McFarland and Benjamin Hill about harnessing collective intelligence.

Nathan runs the podcast transcription service CastingWords which is based on Mechanical Turk. Benjamin’s project is the Mycroft Network which allows users to complete puzzles in banner ad format.

Interestingly, this podcast was then transcribed by CastingWords with some amusing results and further discussion of the service.
