I will be speaking at MSU’s CREATE Science Seminar Series on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 – 12:00pm to 1:15pm in 252 Erickson Hall on Michigan State University’s campus. I’ll be speaking about the evolution of some of my current work on science crowdsourcing games and games as “careful” systems for making sense of the world around us.
Title: From Exploitationware to Careware: Players, Scientists and Epistemic Games
Abstract: From gamification to crowdsourcing, games increasingly are finding homes in the unlikeliest of places. In this talk, I will discuss the trajectory of social games, learning games and citizen-scientist powered crowdsourcing games and the broad implications of these technologies.
