Crowdsourced voice recordings have evolved to play a critical role in the development of speech-controlled apps. As speech recognition rapidly grows from a novelty to a daily necessity, you can expect the demand for both voice recordings and voice-activated systems to rise concurrently.
According to Grand View Research, the demand for voice-activated systems and devices is expected to be worth approximately $32 billion by 2025. But what exactly are voice recordings used for? Why are crowdsourced voice recordings important?Read more

Every website operator needs content. This can include numerous short product or service descriptions, category texts, glossaries, news, blog articles, etc. This content can either be created quickly and at low cost or existing texts can be revised. It goes without saying that page content must also be easy to find on the Internet and have a high search engine ranking. For this purpose, it must be optimized for search engines such as Google. This means that the content must be unique, topic-related, interesting and packed with relevant keywords in optimal density. Depending on the type of text, a keyword density of 1-4% is ideal here; i.e. a keyword should occur 1-4x in a text of 100 words. If your own company is not large enough to create these search engine optimized texts promptly, you might want to opt for “paid crowdsourcing”.Read more

Real-world examples, prominent use cases, and AI’s (artificial intelligence) potential
The industrialized world is full of machines that outdo humans in strength and speed. Cranes lift steel beams to towering heights, car engines send passengers flying down the road at impossible speeds, and tree shredders pulverize entire pine trunks in a snap. Such inventions replicate and vastly outperform humans at tasks requiring physical exertion. They possess “artificial brawn”.
What then is artificial intelligence?
At a first pass, we can think of AI as a machine (i.e., a computer) replicating human cognitive tasks. A calculator, for example, embodies basic AI to do a job for which humans must use their brains: math.Read more
