We're participating in Citizen Science Association 2017 conference in Twin Cities (US) next week - the largest citizen science conference out there! :)
See below for events open to the public, if you're in town!
Pietro is going to present the new dynamic consensus methods we have been developing, so we can reliably tell stalled & flowing vessels apart with much fewer crowd answers.
Stall Catchers players are about to get even more superpowers & analyse data at super speed!! :)) We'll report more on that on the blog soon.
A large proportion of our team is also going to be there, including Egle, Alice, Claire, Andrew, Darlene, Jennifer & Anne !!
Pietro's talk: Validated Dynamic Consensus Approach for Citizen Science Projects Employing Crowd-based Detection Tasks (Friday, May 19 • 2:15pm - 3:15pm) is on the schedule here: http://sched.co/ARKO
We will live stream it on our Facebook page, so be sure to tune in! :)
