About

From Astronomy to Zoology, scientists are struggling to make the best of the enormous datasets the digital revolution has brought. Rapid advances in machine learning have ushered in new opportunities, but Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott will argue that there’s still a place for all of us to contribute. Bringing experience of more than a decade at the helm of Zooniverse, the world’s most successful platform for ‘citizen science’, Lintott will explain how you can discover a planet – and what discoveries might lie ahead. There will also be pictures of penguins.

This talk at the Exeter Phoenix is hosted by Agile Rabbit.
