People as an AI computing tool
July 6th, 2007

The tagging phenomenon started about 3 years ago, with people putting labels on their posts in their blogs or on their pictures or videos. Now, a researcher from the University of Southern California (USC) has discovered the newest AI computing tool: people. Computer scientist Kristina Lerman thinks that ‘she has found a new source of artificial intelligence computing power to solve difficult IT problems of information classification, reliability, and meaning.’ So can we expect better search tools in the future from her? Time will tell.
