Human computation

- - -
This video talks about several games and gimmicks to harness the human mind to solve problems computers can't (yet) solve... I call them games and gimmicks, because on the one hand they're inherently psychologically manipulative, but on the other hand there's also a fair amount of clever algorithmic maneuvers. The speaker is quite entertaining and evidently very enterprising as well.
