Crowds bring the power of collected human intelligence to various forms of work, which is the beauty of crowdsourcing, or collaborative brainstorming. Crowds can do a good job of bringing a specific skill to a job at just the moment when that skill is needed. They are also very good at coordinating a lot of different skills on large and complicated jobs such as:

  • Making judgements

  • Reading handwriting

  • Interpreting images

  • Finding information
