HIT
 n.— «Mr. Bezos figured that what had been useful to Amazon would be valuable to other businesses, too. The company opened Mechanical Turk as a public site in November 2005. Today, there are more than 100,000 “Turk Workers” in more than 100 countries who earn micropayments in exchange for completing a wide range of quick tasks called HITs, for human intelligence tasks, for various companies.» —“Artificial Intelligence, With Help From the Humans” by Jason Pontin New York Times Mar. 25, 2007.
