About the speaker

Attila Szantner

Attila is passionate about connecting scientific research with video games and education – a new paradigm that he calls ‘massively multiplayer online science’, which is also the name for the company he co-founded. While now based in Switzerland, he comes from Hungary, where he was one of the creators of the biggest online social networks, iWiW.

Gamers make a better world. How is it possible to help scientific advancement from the cockpit of your virtual spaceship? Massively Multiplayer Online Science is a completely new approach to do citizen science. Converting a small fraction of the billions of hours spent with playing video games will bring an enormous contribution to scientific research, and in the meantime will change how video games’ expertise is perceived.
