How the Crowd Is Solving an 800-Year-Old Mystery - Karim R. Lakhani and Kevin J. Boudreau

Lakhani and Kevin J. Boudreau | 12:00 PM April 17, 2013 Indiana Jones, the great (fictional) archaeologist, used his own brains and creativity to tackle the toughest intellectual puzzles in his quest for the Holy Grail. Indy’s self-reliance represents the dominant approach to tough problems, i.e. individuals and organizations look to themselves for the solution. Today, this self-reliance is giving way to a new approach: globally dispersed crowds, often numbering in the thousands, are being engaged to help solve problems at a scale, speed, and scope that dwarfs traditional efforts. Consider the case of Dr. In the early 13th Century, Khan and his army swept across the steppes of Mongolia to conquer northern China and Central Asia, forming the Mongolian Empire, which continued after his death to become the largest contiguous empire in human history, stretching from as far east as the Sea of Japan and as far west as parts of Europe.

I’m the only one here, and the one that best fits my actual energy level, to be honest, is a figure lying down and emitting a trail of z’s. I’m trying out an Android app called Twitch. Created by Stanford researchers, it asks you to complete a few simple tasks—contributing information, as with the reported energy levels, or performing simple tasks like ranking images or structuring data extracted from Wikipedia pages—each time you unlock your phone. The information collected by apps like Twitch could be useful to academics, market researchers, or local businesses. Such software could also provide a low-cost way to perform useful work that can easily be broken up into pieces and fed to millions of devices.

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le crowdsourcing, ou externalisation ouverte[1] ou production participative[2], est l'utilisation de la créativité, de l'intelligence et du savoir-faire d'un grand nombre de personnes, en sous-traitance, pour réaliser certaines tâches traditionnellement effectuées par un employé ou un entrepreneur.

For example,Amazon.com and Trip Advisor rely on users to rate products and hotels and restaurants, respectively.[2][3] These reviews are important part of what the two respective websites offer.

When UGC is contained in commercial websites it is often monitored by administrators to avoid offensive content or language, copyright infringement issues, or simply to determine relevancy of the content to the site's theme. Because user-generated content is generally free to store, the world's data centers are now replete with exabytes of UGC that, in addition to creating a corporate asset,[4] may also contain data that can be regarded as a liability.[5][6] General requirements[edit] Network effect.

Pour les articles homonymes, voir UGC. Le contenu généré par les utilisateurs (en anglais User-generated content, ou UGC) se réfère à un ensemble de médias dont le contenu est principalement, soit produit soit directement influencé par les utilisateurs finaux. Il est opposé au contenu traditionnel produit, vendu ou diffusé par les entreprises de média traditionnelles. Le terme devint populaire pendant l'année 2005, dans les milieux du Web 2.0, ainsi que dans les nouveaux médias. Ce mouvement reflète la démocratisation des moyens de production audiovisuelle grâce aux nouvelles technologies. Le contenu généré par les utilisateurs est aussi considéré, par ceux qui le pratiquent, comme un excellent moyen pour améliorer leurs compétences, pour s'instruire, pour découvrir et explorer de nouveaux domaines [citation nécessaire].
