Analysis and related diagnosis of medical images, regardless of the source and imaging modality, are tasks that require a great deal of expertise, demanding significant training of medical practitioners prior to being able to accurately interpret and diagnose such images. Enter BioGames, a platform that relies on the participation of non-expert crowds of individuals to play games that are designed around specific pathology tasks.
The researchers behind the game need your help to scale this up into a truly massively crowd-sourced platform to demonstrate its’ effectiveness. Their initial game is focussed around identifying malaria cells, where your responses are collected and combined with those of other individuals to produce an accurate overall diagnosis. Their goal is to achieve the same accuracy level of a medical professional, and thus prove its’ worth as a reliable tool in the fight against diseases.
