luis von ahn

Long but very interesting video of Luis von Ahn giving a talk at Google. He talks about his PhD work where he figures out ways to solve large, complex problems that can't be solved easily by computers (e.g., how to tag all the photos on Google image search) using people. And doing it in such a way that people will do it for free and in a way that protects the results against 'cheaters'.
