What is the New Power Infrastructure? And how can it help our economy? | Martin Prosperity Institute
Without addressing the blind spots bias raises in all people, it would have left out some of the contributions, perhaps even the crucial ones.

The BBC World Service Archive Prototype
We have built a system
to automatically annotate programmes within this archive with Linked
Data web identi ers. The resulting interlinks are used to bootstrap search
and navigation within this archive and expose it to users. Automated
data will never be entirely accurate so we built crowdsourcing mech-
anisms for users to correct and add data.

CrowdForge: Crowdsourcing complex work
Micro-task markets such as Amazon’s Mechanical Turk represent a new paradigm for accomplishing work, in which employers can tap into a large population of workers around the globe to accomplish tasks in a fraction of the time and money of more traditional methods. However, such markets typically support only simple, independent tasks, such as labeling an image or judging the relevance of a search result. Here we present a general purpose framework for accomplishing complex tasks using micro-task markets. Our approach is inspired by the MapReduce framework for distributed processing and provides a scaffolding for complex human computation tasks. We describe our general framework, a web-based prototype, and case studies on article writing and decision making that demonstrate the benefits of the approach.
