Quantum Moves is an online citizen science simulation game where you move quantum atoms. The objective of the game is to complete challenges that are simulations of logical operations in a quantum computer. The game aims to merge theoretical and experimental quantum research with online community efforts to explore the potential for online citizen science in this otherwise highly specialized field. Quantum Moves is a game developed by ScienceAtHome based at Aarhus University, Denmark.
TEDx talk by Jacob Sherson, the founder of ScienceAtHome, is now available online. “In his talk, Jacob invites us into the strange world of quantum physics and explains how anyone can become a quantum physicist […]
From April 10th to April 15th, Citizen Science Games was hosting the @IamCitSci Twitter account. The whole week was dedicated to games and science. We storified the week in different episodes, in case you missed […]
Humans routinely solve problems of immense computational complexity by intuitively forming simple, low-dimensional heuristic strategies. Citizen science (or crowd sourcing) is a way of exploiting this ability by presenting scientific research problems to non-experts. ‘ […]
This paper presents results from the design and testing of an educational version of Quantum Moves, a Scientific Discovery Game that allows players to help solve authentic scientific challenges in the effort to develop a […]
