How does Figure-Eight works?
Figure-Eight is based on the idea of creating millions of simple online tasks to create a distributed computing machine. The business model of Figure-Eight is composed on a customer, a task and a contributor. Figure-Eight provides tools for the customer to upload their data and design their task either by drag and drop or using Crow-Flower Mark up Language (CML). Then, the task became available for the contributors (crowd) to perform. Figure-Eight provides a set of tools to set the desired quality, speed and cost of the task. This section describes the mechanisms provided to achieve the most possible quality in the task.
