ARL crowd sourcing +According to [http://www.arl.army.mil/arlreports/2013/ARL-MR-0848.pdf Pierce & Fung] (2013), The goal of this project is to generate a large number of video vignettes meant to visually demonstrate specific verbs. The project called for 48 verbs to be demonstrated,each in 10 different exemplars. Each exemplar was filmed with 16 different setting variations, consisting of different backgrounds, camera angle, time of day,etc. This produces a total of 7680 vignettes. The vignettes are to be data points provided to system design teams as part of a larger research and development project This project included 6 variants (sub-projects) described in the [http://www.arl.army.mil/arlreports/2013/ARL-MR-0848.pdf Pierce & Fung, 2013] report.  +

Amazon mechanical turk +A platform that allows organizations or individuals to outsource simple tasks (identification, writing, tagging, etc.) to individuals. While Amazon turk has been primarily designed for industry, it also is used in research, for example in citizen science platforms.  +
Andromeda Project +Star clusters are collections of hundreds to millions of stars that were born at the same time from the same cloud of gas. This shared origin makes star clusters unique tools for understanding how stars form and evolve. Additionally, they are useful for studying the major chapters in the history of galaxies. But before Andromeda's star clusters can unlock these secrets, we need the help of Citizen Scientists to find the clusters. Not just the big bright ones, but the small faint ones as well. This is the goal of the Andromeda Project.  +

Budburst +We are a network of people across the United States who monitor plants as the seasons change. We are a national field campaign designed to engage the public in the collection of important ecological data based on the timing of leafing, flowering, and fruiting of plants (plant phenophases). Project BudBurst participants make careful observations of these plant phenophases. The data are being collected in a consistent manner across the country so that scientists can use the data to learn more about the responsiveness of individual plant species to changes in climate locally, regionally, and nationally. Thousands of people from all 50 states have participated. Project BudBurst began in 2007 in response to requests from people like you who wanted to make a meaningful contribution to understanding changes in our environment.  +
CS4CS +The overall Citizen Cyberlab project will research and evaluate on-line collaborative environments and software tools that stimulate creative learning in the context of Citizen Cyberscience. The purpose of the CS4CS project is to contribute to the the "general picture", i.e. understand certain aspects of citizen science by looking at a larger set of documented projects. The CS4CS sub-project aims in particular: * To create an inventory of citizen science projects, infrastructure and software * To identify properties of interest to learning, creativity, motivation and community researchers * To provide a searchable database and some summary statistics  +
Celebrate Urban Birds +The project assesses the value of green spaces for birds, ranging in size from a potted plant to half a basketball court.  +
Cell Slider +This project is a first of its kind for Cancer Research UK. It will change the face of cancer research. We’re fighting for a world where no one’s life will be cut short by cancer . . . and there is real hope. Each year, our scientists get closer to finding cures for cancers – whether through targeted treatments or earlier detection. We are on the brink of major breakthroughs and by simply giving a few minutes of your time you will become part of a collaborative collective force that will to dramatically reduce the time needed to analyse our research data.  +

Evolution MegaLab +Quote: Enthusiasm for science and the desire to share wonder, excitement and relevance of science to everyday life drives our outreach programme. Our aim is to ignite an interest in science in people who have been bored or turned off by the subject in the past. We are fortunate to have a range of staff who are not only scientists, but gifted communicators as well. They provide lecture demonstrations at science fairs and festivals and also contribute to events hosted by primary schools and amateur societies.

ExCiteS forest monitoring +Develop a system of participatory monitoring for forest management – specifically the social impact of logging. In a more global perspective, the goal is to let communities build so-called Community Memories: evolving, shared representations of the state of their environment, their relationship with it, and any threats it faces.  +
Experimental tribe +Experimental Tribe is a web platform designed for scientific gaming and social computation. In the last few years the Web has been progressively acquiring the status of an infrastructure for “social computing” that allows researchers to coordinate the cognitive abilities of users in online communities, and steer the collective action towards predefined goals. This general trend is also triggering the adoption of web-games as a very interesting laboratory to run experiments in the social-sciences and whenever the peculiar human computation abilities are crucially required for research purposes. Xtribe is run by a research team focused on the investigation of dynamical processes involving human beings, a series of research topics gathered under the denomination of Social Dynamics. The research team recently got funded by the Templeton Foundation for a project on "Unfolding the dynamics of creativity, novelties and innovation" . More about the research project: The project addresses the dynamics of novelties - a fundamental factor in the evolution of human societies, biological systems and technology- with the aim to unfold and quantify the underlying mechanisms through which creativity emerges and innovations diffuse, compete and stabilize. The project is timely due to the availability of extensive longitudinal records of human, social, biological and technological evolution. We shall exploit the unique opportunity offered by the combination of ICT tools for social computation with powerful analytical and modeling tools, by blending, in a unitary interdisciplinary effort, three main activities: web-based experiments, data science and theoretical modeling. Through this experimental, mathematical and computational framework we aim at providing the scientific community with a quantitative understanding of the determinants of creativity and innovation as well as a solid overarching scientific framework describing creativity in a quantitative and operational way. We hope to stimulate a bundle of new research lines in multiple academic and non-academic communities interested in quantifying and controlling the processes underlying creativity and innovation. By unveiling and quantifying the complex ecology of creativity and innovation, we also expect to impact sectors - education, learning, research, social challenges- where creativity and innovation are much needed fuels.  +
EyeWire +Identify and Maps all the neurons in the retina.  +
Fold It +Identify the structural configuration of natural proteins to study and understand proteins better.  +
Galaxy Zoo +The main purpose is to understand how galaxies formed. According to the Galaxy Zoo team : <span style="background-color:#eeeeee" class="citation">“"Galaxies come in very different shapes and have very different properties. they may be large or small, old or young, red or blue, regular or confused, luminous or faint, dusty or gas-poor, rotating or static, round or disky, and they live either in splendid isolation or in clusters. In other words, the universe contains a very colourful and diverse zoo of galaxies. For almost a century, astronomers have been discussing how galaxies should be classified and how they relate to each other in an attempt to attack the big question of how galaxies form." ”</span> The classification of images in Galaxy Zoo would help scientists to understand the structure of the universe and determine whether there is anything "fundamentally wrong" with existing galaxy models.  +
GeoTag-X +The goals of the GeoTag-X project include: - helping disaster response and humanitarian operations by providing meaningful datasets extrapolated from media analysed by volunteers; - complementing UNITAR-UNOSAT’s satellite imagery work by providing rich, locally acquired media of areas being analysed. To ensure that the data produced by GeoTag-X is useable by the international community, the data structure is being designed based on existing data collection methodologies such as assessments and field assessment surveys. Ideally, the data produced by GeoTag-X will therefore be created and delivered in accordance with international practice for easiest use. The primary aim of GeoTag-X therefore was to develop a system, tools, and methodology for facilitating the harvesting and analysis of photos, and the creation of datasets that could be used by humanitarian organisations in their response to different disasters. In order to be successful in this aim we need to transfer the expertise from knowledgeable individuals to the crowd to give them the skills to be able to: 1. Identify relevant photos 2. Conduct detailed analysis of those photos and/or categorise those photos according to simple classification rules to make them accessible and useful to disaster responders 3. Georeference that content as precisely as possible  +
