I've been saying this for a long time. For quite a while there was just a lack of projects that could really use humans help with the kind of AI training that recaptcha does for Google.
Fast forward to today, and I'd love to see "Fosscaptcha"* (*does not exist) being used to help OpenStreetCam's FOSS machine learning algorithms to identify signs/crosswalks etc for OpenStreetMap
@Blort @cquest Have you heard of ReMAPTCHA ? https://wiki.hsr.ch/StefanKeller/wiki.cgi?ReMAPTCHA
I was so excited to see this when I first clicked on the link, as this is exactly the kind of project I've been wishing existed.
So sad that it says it closed in 2014😢
If only someone would pick this up again and create a WordPress comment plugin using it, it would be so much better than having everyone train Google's AI's and improve Google's map data...
