The “Citizen Cyberscience” movement builds on the success of projects like SETI@Home and GalaxyZoo — which leverage the brainpower of millions of people, as well as their computing power, to address large, complex research and humanitarian challenges. The London Citizen Cyberscience Summit will gather scientists and citizens to learn about the latest breakthroughs in citizen cyberscience. A bold ambition of the summit is to draft a citizen cyberscience manifesto, involving all the stakeholders in the field.
Confirmed speakers include: David Anderson (director of the SETI@home project, Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley), George Dyson (historian and philosopher of science and author of Darwin Among The Machines), and Myles Allen (head of ClimatePrediction.net at Oxford University).
