Ars Technica: The secret lives of Google raters

Ars Technica: The secret lives of Google raters. “Who are these raters? They’re carefully trained and tested staff who can spend 40 hours per week logged into a system called Raterhub, which is owned and operated by Google. Every day, the raters complete dozens of short but exacting tasks that produce invaluable data about the usefulness of Google’s ever-changing algorithms. They contribute significantly to several Google and Android projects, from search and voice recognition to photos and personalization features.” (And remember, Google just posted $5.43 billion in profit. Not revenue. PROFIT.)
