Mathematician Francis Galton discovered that the mean of 800 participants’ guesses about an ox’s weight was closer than any individual guess or the median. The crowd - 1,197 pounds, actual was 1,198. The concept of crowdsourced data security is based on the same principle: the collective intelligence of the crowd strengthens security by accelerating the elimination of risk at increased accuracy.
