2020 Winner | Science & Innovation Management 2020 2020 Finalist | Science & Innovation Management Winner

How can the world truly benefit from artificial intelligence without dividing between techno- enthusiasts (who are fascinated about the potential of Artificial Intelligence) and skeptics who fear the total replacement of humans through technology?

Jacob Sherson brings together researchers from all branches of natural science with social and cognitive scientists and hundreds of thousands of volunteers to create an online laboratory for human problem solving and collaboration. Exploring both the efficiency of citizen scientists on complex challenges and novel ways of involving them in all aspects of the research cycle could give unique insights into distinctly human skills like creativity. The jury found Jacob’s approach fascinating, as it pushes the boundaries of citizen science, and features a potential powerful project bridging quantum mechanics, artificial intelligence and citizen science.
