CDAS: A Crowdsourcing Data Analytics System
Some complex problems, such as image tagging and natural language processing, are very challenging for computers, where even state-of-the-art technology is yet able to provide satisfactory accuracy. Therefore, rather than relying solely on developing new and better algorithms to handle such tasks, the authors look to the crowdsourcing solution-employing human participation - to make good the shortfall in current technology. Crowdsourcing is a good supplement to many computer tasks. A complex job may be divided into computer-oriented tasks and human-oriented tasks, which are then assigned to machines and humans respectively.
