Crowd Sourcing is a Community based way of working for tackling difficult or complex problems. It splits the problem into pieces, distributes the pieces to a large number of individuals (and/or computers) which complete the pieces. The completed pieces are returned to a central system and then pieces are combined to formulate the overall solution to the original problem.

Crowd Sourcing can be initiated via Contests [].
