Jim Gray search: More than 12,000 volunteers

The volunteers searching for Jim Gray have completed more than 530,000 image-scanning tasks doled out by Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk service, according to Werner Vogels, the company’s chief technology officer.

Volunteers pore over satellite images, searching for signs of Gray’s boat.

“We need a little more of a push and then all the images will have been processed,” Vogels said on his blog today. “A team of experts led by Alex Szalay of John Hopkins University has been working through the thousands of images marked for further investigation. They currently have a set of about 20 images that are being further scrutinized before they will be handed to Coast Guard for determining whether they can take action on them.”

If you’d like to pitch in, details are at Mechanical Turk.
