Check out this talk from Chris and Brooke given at the Oxford Martin School last week. The title is “Where next for citizen science? Innovative uses for crowdsourcing” and it is part of the “Blurring the lines: the changing dynamics between man and machine” series that is being put on by the Martin School at the moment. In the seminar they address what the Zooniverse is and how it works, how it can be used to save the world, and why gamification of citizen science projects can be problematic.
