Humanoid

Humanoid is the world’s first human brainpower API.

Humanoid offers computer programmers a reliable way to use human intelligence in software applications. Using a drag-and-drop interface, engineers can swiftly create tasks and send instructions to humans.

Proprietary software breaks the tasks into small pieces and routes them to workers across the globe. Meanwhile, Humanoid’s artificially intelligent workforce manager ensures accuracy and prevents fraud without human oversight.

When the task is complete, developers receive the resulting data through a simple programming interface, known as an API.
