The Crowd & The Cloud

"Smartphones, computers and mobile technology are allowing people to become part of a revolutionary, 21st century way of doing science. By observing their environment, monitoring neighborhoods, and collecting information about the world around them, citizens are helping professional scientists advance knowledge while speeding up new discoveries and innovations. The results are improving health and welfare, fighting air and water pollution, and giving communities the power to help themselves. THE CROWD & THE CLOUD, a four-part series hosted by former NASA Chief Scientist Waleed Abdalati, takes viewers on a global tour of the projects and people on the front lines of this disruptive transformation in how science is done, and shows how anyone, anywhere can participate. Produced by Passport to Knowledge and made possible by The National Science Foundation."
