AI + Citizen Science

AI Enlists the Greater Public as Citizen Scientists

Fireside chat with Cliff Johnson of Zooniverse and Seth Magle of the Lincoln Park Zoo

Moderated by Tanya Berger-Wolf

An illuminating conversation on how citizen scientists play a crucial role in the development of artificial intelligence open data projects. These are characterized by public involvement in inquiry and discovery of new scientific knowledge. Through citizen science, people share and contribute to data sets, typically through data collection, analysis, or reporting.

Some fields that citizen science advances are diverse: ecology, astronomy, medicine, computer science, statistics, psychology, genetics, engineering and many more. The massive collaborations that can occur through citizen science allow investigations at continental and global scales and across decades—leading to discoveries that a single scientist could never achieve on their own!
