This CEO is paying 600,000 strangers to help him build human-powered AI that's 'whole orders of magnitude better than Google'

  - Hive is a Silicon Valley startup that's best known for its AI-powered image recognition system, with customers including NASCAR. 

  - The dirty little secret of artificial intelligence is that it takes a lot of human labor to make it all work. But Hive embraces this.

  - Hive pays 600,000 workers and counting to label photos, getting paid pennies in return. You won't get rich, but as Guo says, it's a simple "game" that makes you money — what other app on your phone can do that?

  - The data gets put to use in training AI systems, at a scale that Guo says is unmatched.
