Crowd-sourcing is here to stay (and grow) says inventor of reCaptcha

Here’s a cool quote from Luis von Ahn, inventor of reCaptcha (those squiggly characters you see in sign up and registration forms all over the web!) and DuoLingo about how big problems are solved:

I think we’ll continue seeing a mix: certain tasks are best done by small teams of experts, others are best done by crowdsourcing, and others by computers. That said, I assume the fraction of crowdsourced and computer tasks will increase over the next 5 years.”

We couldn’t agree more.
