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.

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.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
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.
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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
