In the past 4 years, we have seen the growth of large systems that combine both computer and human labor. Often identified as “artificial artificial intelligence” these systems are used for tasks as diverse as creating metadata, object recognition, translation, editing and other complicated tasks. Examples of these systems include systems as diverse as those supported by Amazon Mechanical Turk and Wikipedia. Though they are often identified as new step in computer science, they actually have a long history and represent the next step in the processes that have created divided labor.
