This new game, for the first time uses gamers to do something. What? Identify the game also, pls.

It is beating sophisticated computer algorithms designed to do the same!

Apologies for the delay folks. Sudden burst of social life can cause time management issues.

    Foldit follows the Games With a Purpose paradigm in which players, as a side effect of playing, help solve problems that computers cannot solve very well.

    Protein folding such as that seen in foldit@home.

    The game version is called FoldIt and has been around for quite a while, I think.

    The game is Foldit, it is an attempt to apply the human brain’s natural three-dimensional pattern matching abilities to this problem. As a side effect of the game, it uses humans to help solve problems that computers cannot solve very well.

    Game’s name – Foldit

    in the game players construct 3D protein structure.

    Foldit – an online protein folding game developed by University of Washington.

    Foldit…. protein folding…human users instead of comp algorithms figure out the best 3D folding for proteins

    protein folding. game’s called fold.it


  24. Foldit – Foldit is an experimental video game about protein folding
    User manipulates simple protein-like structures, and a periodically updated set of puzzles based on real proteins. The application displays a graphical representation of the protein’s structure which the user is able to manipulate with the aid of a set of tools.


  25. Protein folding game on fold.it


  26. Rahul Rajeev

    ‘Foldit’ – It is an experimental video game about protein folding


  27. Vinay Hegde

    Foldit is the game.
    It requires the gamers to competitively predict the way proteins fold into 3-D structures, given their primary structures. The more closely your protein resembles the actual one, the higher points you garner.


  28. This is Foldit which is an experimental video game about protein folding

    Games With a Purpose — Modelling a task as a game it aims to solve problems which Machine finds it hard to do whereas Humans can do it easily but find it boring

    Fold It is the game


  30. Qbrain

    This is an online game in which humans try to solve one of the hardest computational problems in biology:
    protein folding. Its called “Foldit”.
    Foldit provides a series of tutorials in which the user manipulates simple protein-like structures, and a periodically updated set of puzzles based on real proteins. The graphical display of the protein’s structure enables the user to manipulate with the aid of a set of tools.


  31. fold.it – aim is to find the best way to fold proteins

    This new game,Foldit attempts to predict the structure of a protein by taking advantage of humans’ puzzle-solving intuitions and let people play competitively to fold the best proteins.Players can design brand new proteins that could help prevent or treat important diseases.
