Episode 75 – Citizen Scientists

SenseFly

SenseFly at CES

On this special winter evening episode of GamesAtWork dot Biz, Sandy and Michael R. get together to talk about how Citizen Scientists are changing how data is collected, processed, and how Gaming technology is being leveraged in these crowdsourced scientific endeavors. We think about how citizen scientists are impacting weather forecasting, thanks to WeatherUnderground, Tsunami tracking with Seismic sensors, Extraterrestrial science with Seti@Home, and protein folding with Fold.It. We then focus on the overlap between games and the real world with the upcoming really cool game – ReRoll Game.

This and a whole lot more on this week’s show! Drop us a comment or please rate us on iTunes and post a review. We value your feedback.
