About ScienceAtHome

ScienceAtHome is a diverse team of scientists, game developers, designers and visual artists based at Aarhus University, Denmark. We create fun scientific games that produce real research results through play. At CODER (Center for Community Driven Research) we aim at merging theoretical and experimental research with online community efforts aiming to allow internet users to find solutions to complex scientific challenges encountered in quantum physics. The mission of our ScienceatHome project is to incorporate a large number of physics simulation models in order to: Allow all Internet users to get the chance to contribute to varied scientific challenges; Let experimental researchers worldwide simulate their own experiments; Give access to theoreticians and experimental researchers to gain new perspectives and innovative ideas through the use of simulation tools.

BIOGRAPHY

Jacob is an established quantum physicist who has, amongst other achievements, set the world record for quantum teleportation. He founded ScienceAtHome to create an online platform that democratizes science by turning research problems into engaging games. Now, with the help of gamers around the world, Jacob aspires to better understand the difference between human and artificial intelligence and how interfaces can be created to make optimal use of both.

In addition, he is establishing a global effort to link citizen science with the core school curriculum in order to foster students’  love of learning and curiosity for how the world works while empowering them to contribute to cutting edge research.
