Citizen Science

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a rapidly evolving field and we hear almost daily in the press how AI has revolutioned the business process in a new domain. While some foresight scientists are spaged to computer intelligence within a few decades will overtake human intelligence and potentially thus render superfluous the entire human race, other AI researchers claim that we are still far from understanding the human Ability to make quick, intuitive and often correct decisions based on little data. I will tell you how we (www.scienceathome.org) present complex research challenges in the form of computer games. Provisionally, more than 200.000 people from all over the world have contributed to solving the problems in everything from quantum physics to brain research using their human intuition. In a multidisciplinary collaboration, we are now studying this vast source of human complex problem solving to gain new insight into how the human brain works and how the next generation of artificial intelligence could look.
