Crowdsourcing „Crowdsourcing is a type of participative online activity in which an individual, an institution, a non-profit organization, or company proposes to a group of individuals of varying knowledge, heterogeneity, and number, via a flexible open call, the voluntary undertaking of a task. The undertaking of the task, of variable complexity and modularity, and in which the crowd should participate bringing their work, money, knowledge and/or experience, always entails mutual benefit. The user will receive the satisfaction of a given type of need, be it economic, social recognition, self-esteem, or the development of individual skills, while the crowdsourcer will obtain and utilize to their advantage that what the user has brought to the venture, whose form will depend on the type of activity undertaken.   Crowdsourcing Microwork Digital sweatshop Outsourcing Human-based computation Amateur Volunteering Intrinsic and extrinsic properties Crowd The Surgeon of Crowthorne Oxford English Dictionary Leblanc process Crowd funding Crowdsourcing creative work Inducement prize contest Threadless IStockphoto Wisdom of the crowd Life in a Day (2011 film) YouTube CrowdFlower Jade Magnet Kickstarter Amazon Mechanical Turk Tag Challenge InnoCentive Panos Ipeirotis International Children’s Digital Library Citizen science Clickworkers Collective intelligence Collaborative innovation network Crowd computing Crowdcasting Distributed thinking Flash mob Game theory List of crowdsourcing projects Microcredit Open innovation Social Terrain Smart mob Social collaboration
