Ask Epi: “Be My Eyes” Crowdsources Vision for the Visually Impaired

Written by Epi Ludvik

May 15, 2016

Epi Ludvik Nekaj’s weekly vlog shares insights on crowd economy trends, crowdsourcing and more.

In this week’s video I am talking about “Be My Eyes” as an example of how we can use our time to help people through crowdsourcing resources. Be My Eyes is an iPhone app that enables visually impaired people to request help when they need to know what’s in front of them, often very quick and simple things like does this tie match the shirt; or handbag match the dress; before I open it, is there a label on this package that’s arrived?

Please share your comments and feedback on Be My Eyes and other new platforms and economy trends with us.
