Humanoid is a company that has developed a solution for computer programmers that enables them to implement human intelligence in applications. The company was founded in 2008 by Matt Mireles, Matt Swanson, and Tyler Kieft, in San Francisco, California, United States.
The company claims to be the first human powered Application Programming Interface (API). The platform offers a drag-and-drop interface that allows engineers to create and send tasks to other users. Their software is capable of splitting tasks into smaller tasks and dispatching them to the workforce of a company including remote users. The company has also developed an artificial intelligence that assists with attaining accuracy of work, and provides security against fraud.
Humanoid's API is ultimately a crowdsourcing QA which provides cost optimization technologies. The software implements advanced machine learning techniques to predict how individuals will perform on the dispatched tasks, allowing the platform to assign appropriate work to workers.
