Science together

Get involved in citizen science

Editorial

The collective intelligence challenge

Collaborative endeavors between scientists and civil society stakeholders have developed significantly in recent years. This growth is driven by public interest in the scientific approach and culture, as well as by the need to find solutions to complex issues (economic, social, health, environmental, cultural, educational and ethical). Digital technology has helped foster the development of this type of collaboration, drawing on both artificial and collective intelligence.

Citizen science relies on cooperation and public participation to produce knowledge in a manner that approaches the scientific, ethical, legal and technology issues of research from a broader perspective.

Finding answers together has thus become the great collective intelligence challenge of the 21st century.

CosmoNote Science and music Science and music

CosmoNote

Enjoy listening to music, annotating and learning about structures in music performance

CosmoNote was created to study the structures created and shaped in musical performance, i.e., those that arise from the decisions and actions of the performer. We are recruiting expert and non-expert participants who are curious and motivated to annotate, discover and learn about music performance.

CosmoNote

CosmoNote uses any browser to present music recordings accompanied by visualizations of relevant descriptors. Our contributors will use interactive annotation tools to mark structures such as boundaries, transitions, note groups, found in performed music.
