Microsoft Taps Gigwalk Crowdsourcing Tool to Enhance Search Results
Gigwalk is a mobile crowdsouring tool available in eight U.S. cities. Those with work to be done (take a picture of a menu, confirm a placemat is in use in a specific restaurant, etc.) offer it up for a worker who gets paid a fee to complete the job or "gig." Microsoft will use the service to collect images to include alongside its Bing Maps results.
