eLife Backs the SwipesForScience Game-Making Service

eLife announced that it will contribute to developing SwipesForScience, a templating service for researchers that allows them to create mobile-friendly games centered on analyzing large amounts of research data. eLife notes, “By helping scientists gamify the crowdsourcing of data analysis, SwipesForScience will engage the community to speed up research.”

SwipesForScience uses “natural-language processing to mine free-text descriptions of scientific research and identify numerical data and text within them.” The data analyzed during game play “could then be fed back into the natural-language processing algorithms to further improve automatic sample-size detection in research papers.”
