After 10 years in the video games industry, Claire decided to focus on games that help scientific research. In 2016, she launched her website, citscigames.com, she started writing about citizen science games, started giving talk and leading round tables to raise awareness about these games. She joined the Human Computation Institute and was working on Stall Catchers, a gamified citizen science project that speeds up Alzheimer's research. She recently started 'Think Crowd', a company dedicated to the production of games for science.
There is an increasing number of citizen science games. These games not only carry educational values, they also help solve various scientific problems, from finding ways to build a quantum computer to building diagnosis tool to detect dementia. In this talk, we will identify scientific problems that can be better solved by games, we will look a the different ways they can be integrated into existing games and we will review a few design challenges they pose.

Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
