Consider a machine learning technique like deep learning, where each individual “neuronal” computational action is fairly simple but aggregated over several neurons and iterated through several computation cycles can solve complex problems like image recognition and machine translation. What if we swapped out neurons for people? What kinds of complex problems could we solve? Omoju Miller offers a new vision for the global brain, where we harness human action for a better future.
