Human Computation

Very interesting talk by Luis von Ahn, who invented the www.espgame.org and others. The general idea, like with the Amazon Mechanical Turk, is to use human 'cycles' i.e idle brain capacity to solve problems that computers aren't good at. I already read a presentation of his some time ago, and got lots of food for thought and mileage at dinner parties out of it. Highly recommended.

PS. very slick of Google to offer a direct posting link at the end of the video.
