Solve for X is a forum to encourage and amplify technology based moonshot thinking and teamwork. http://www.wesolveforx.com G+: http://goo.gl/T3qQo

This talk describes Foldit and EteRNA, a series of remarkable new scientific discovery games Adrien Treuille has helped create. These games lead us to wonder: how many unknown "Kasparovs" are out there on the Internet -- potential experts at tasks they never knew existed? Is this the future of expertise?

Adrien is an Assistant Professor of computer science and robotics at Carnegie Mellon. He researches scientific challenges through multi-player on-line games such as Foldit (protein folding) and EteRNA (nano-engineering).

Many people were involved in Foldit and EteRNA. Adrien would like to thank:

Seth Cooper (Foldit)
Zoran Popovic (Foldit)
Firas Khatib (Foldit)
David Baker (Foldit)
Jeehyung Lee (EteRNA)
Rhiju Das (EteRNA)
Martin Azizyan (EteRNA)
