Segment CEO Peter Reinhardt says replacing middle managers with APIs will have dire consequences. But is there another view?
As I continue to report on new APIs popping up all over the Internet, one theme has caught my attention: systems powered by simple information tasks completed by humans. It’s developing trend in which humans take requests from software systems, complete them, and feed the results back into the system. This is a fundamental shift in computing. Now, Human input is no longer solely for the purpose of controlling or directing the application. It has become just another functional component of the system. The human is taking the place of a software component and can in some instances be described in terms of expected inputs and outputs.
In this age of automation and separation it is surprising to find human components of automated services. QuickTate believes that humans are still better than computers at speech recognition and that’s why the QuickTate API is built around living breathing typists. The company has taken the old model of a transcription service and revamped it to take advantage of the internet age that we live in: typists are distributed rather than co-located and jobs can be submitted via API from any number of applications.
