El turco mecánico de Amazon


Amazon mechanical turk es un servicio de Amazon donde empresas cuelgan trabajos sencillos que necesitan hacer y que no pueden hacer los ordenadores (reconocimiento visual, transcripción de audios, búsquedas web, contestar un encuesta, etc). Asignan un precio y la gente se puede conectar y hacer el trabajo cobrando el dinero.

En wikipedia:

The name Mechanical Turk comes from “The Turk,” a chess-playing automaton of the 18th century, which was made by Wolfgang von Kempelen. It toured Europe, beating the likes of Napoleon Bonaparte and Benjamin Franklin. It was later revealed that this “machine” was not an automaton at all, but was in fact a chess master hidden in a special compartment controlling its operations. Likewise, the Mechanical Turk web service allows humans to help the machines of today perform tasks for which they are not suited.


Amazon coined the term Artificial artificial intelligence
