Clinton Auditorium

Speakers: Grant Miller

A year ago the Zooniverse launched its new platform which allows anyone, from large research groups to individual school pupils, to build their own citizen science project for free, leading to a significant change in the scale and variety of projects on the platform. I will showcase some of the astrophysics projects that have been built without assistance from the Zooniverse team, describe how we have given our community of volunteers a more involved role in this process, and highlight our future plans, including introducing more machine learning and computer vision into our projects. This is a public lecture which is part of the Astronomical Science Group of Ireland, Irish National Astronomy meeting 2016
