'Project Discovery' is the first implementation of the concept Massively Multiplayer Online Science. It is a joint effort of 'EVE Online', MMOS and the Human Protein Atlas to bring real life science into major computer games as a seamless gaming experience. It is the first serious game implemented inside a AAA video game.
'Project Discovery' was launched in February 2016 and it became an instant success. In the first two weeks of the project players have analysed 5 million images through the in-game interface. Come and hear about the challenges we faced during the last two years while creating 'Project Discovery'.
