'Project Discovery': Lessons From Scientific Research via 'EVE Online'


'Project Discovery' was launched exactly one year ago during GDC. Since then it became one of the biggest citizen science efforts of 2016, generating over 20 million protein location classifications by players of 'EVE Online', and receiving worldwide recognition in high-profile scientific journals like Nature Methods and also in the mainstream press: The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Independent, Neue Zrcher Zeitung and many other journals. Come and hear about the story of the first year, the results and future plans. Get inspired and see how your own game can contribute to science and a better world.
