- Flexibility: Scale your workforce up and down quickly
- Accuracy: Get high-quality, cost-effective results
- Speed: Start receiving results in minutes
You can dynamically scale your workforce as your business demands:
-Access more than 500,000 Workers from 190 countries
- Connect with Workers who have a variety of skill sets and capabilities
- Scale up and down in minutes
- You decide how much to pay Workers for each HIT (Human Intelligence Task)
- Pay only when you're satisfied with the work."
What's the hell is this? Slavery? Close. It's Amazon Mechanical Turk. Why this name?
Tomorrow, there will be:
- Robotized tasks. If your job can be robotized, change.
- Human Intelligence tasks (HIT). If your job can be divided into very small tasks, be careful.
- Few jobs too complex to automate and to divide into small HIT. If machines cannot replace you for now. Good luck, enjoy and help others.
Other examples of HIT:
- Uber: Freelance anonymous drivers selected by an algorithm to drive people from A to B using an automated itinerary, tracked by a GPS and automatically rated and scored. Do you know the name of your Uber driver? No. He's just an "HIT".
- Amazon "On my way": anybody can be an "HIT" to deliver a parcel.
HIT is the dream of liberalism. A scalable workforce 100% freelance, paid 100% on performance, hyper flexible, cheap and potentially not paid if they don't work enough. Uber don't hesitate to be very directive with its drivers.
So much jobs could be HITted tomorrow. That's a bit scary.
We criticize a lot companies, its structure, working conditions etc. Looking at HIT, a big company and a real contract seems to be a kind of paradise.
