Creating intelligent systems that are able to recognize a user's behavior, understand unrestricted spoken natural language, complete complex tasks, and respond fluently could change the way computers are used in daily life. But fully-automated intelligent systems are a far-off goal -currently, machines struggle in many real-world settings because problems can be almost entirely unconstrained and can vary greatly between instances. Human computation has been shown to be effec tive in many of
