Google Is Leveraging The Power Of The Crowd To Improve Translations
Online volunteers have the opportunity to refine the company's rendition and mapping services through related microtasks
As the formidable company Google continues to push the boundaries of artificial intelligence, it made an interesting gesture recently by releasing Crowdsource in the Android app store for better translations.
Google continues to be one of the most desirable place to work around the world. Crowdsource enables enthusiasts to help Google improve clunky language translation, handwriting recognition (used in its mobile keyboard) and the specificity of the Maps app.
Interestingly, the app is not driven by a rewards system; rather it is driven by the desire to “make the internet a better place for your community.” Reading through the app comments and reviews, it becomes obvious that while some people are asking for the app to connect to Google's Opinion Rewards, others recognize that Google already provides free services and this is a genuine way of returning the favor.
