Tuesday, February 26th 2019
Speaker: Derryl Wright
Subject: Machine Learning and Citizen Science at Zooniverse

As researchers gather ever larger data sets there is an increasing reliance on machine learning and demand for citizen science. We will introduce Zooniverse, the world's largest citizen science platform and show how citizen science is helping researchers unlock meaningful information from the data they collect. We will also demonstrate how, classifications produced by volunteers, are enabling machine learning and that both citizen science and machine learning can empower each other to process data more efficiently than either alone.
