Crowdsourcing and the Democratization of Data

Video Description

Topics for any discipline that focuses on quantitative or technical data have always depended on the datasets that were available at the time. Crowdsourcing has changed that — democratizing the data-collection process and cutting researchers’ reliance on stagnant, overused datasets. Tools like Amazon Mechanical Turk allow anyone to gather data overnight, rather than waiting years.
