The future of citizen science

  • submit to reddit

For me the recruitment of regular folks into the scientific process is the most exciting facet of the open innovation movement.  The following is a fascinating talk by Dr Chris Lintott and Dr Brooke Simmons talk about the future of citizen science, delivered to Oxford University’s Oxford Martin School.  The talk focuses on the Zooniverse platform due to the experience Dr Lintott has had running and growing the platform.

It’s well worth a watch if this is a topic of interest to you.
