Citizen Science

TED Radio Hour

The final episode of the Citizen Science series zooms out a little bit and looks at citizen science as a whole. This episode features: Ainhoa Moya a software engineer (formerly of Conde Naste now Disney), on the value of opening up the lab to people with deep computational skills that may not have formal academic training Dave Guston Professor School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University on how non scientists can have input into setting the research agenda.

#76 - The Age Of Citizen Science
Episode of
Think: Sustainability
Citizen scientists and members of the public have done everything from discovering species, to documenting sea temperature changes. Just this year in Australia, an amateur astronomer named Andrew Grey, a mechanic from Darwin, helped scientists discover a whole set of new planets. But why are people like you, donating their time, to help scientists document and discover. And is crowdfunding the scientific method really trustworthy?

How To Build Your Own Artificial Pancreas
Episode of
Prognosis
More than a million Americans suffer from Type 1 diabetes. The disease occurs when the pancreas mysteriously stops producing insulin, the hormone that converts food into energy. Modern medicine has been able to recreate insulin, but not the finely calibrated delivery mechanism of the pancreas. Now a group of like-minded do-it-yourselfers have gotten together on the internet and—working outside the purview of organized medicine—have figured out how to link a pump, glucose monitor and smartphone to simulate a functioning pancreas. The results have been spectacularly successful.
#424 Biohacking (Rebroadcast)
Episode of
Science for the People
This week we're talking about do-it-yourself biology, and the community labs that are changing the biotech landscape from the grassroots up. We'll discuss open-source genetics and biohacking spaces with Will Canine of Brooklyn lab Genspace, and Tito Jankowski, co-founder of Silicon Valley's BioCurious. And we'll talk to transdisciplinary artist and educator Heather Dewey-Hagborg about her art projects exploring our relationship with genetics and privacy.
