Submission + - 70,000+ Have Played Brain-Mapping 'EyeWire' Game (singularityhub.com)

kkleiner writes: EyeWire is a game developed by MIT researchers in which users map the connectome, which is the massively complex connections between the billions of neurons in the brain. Since its launch last year, EyeWire has already had over 70,000 citizen scientists play the game. Users are not only contributing directly while they play the game, but they're also advancing brain science by helping researchers improve AI algorithms so that someday computers can study the connectome accurately and independently.
