The current searches for radio signals from distant technological civilizations can benefit from your creative talents. If you are good at writing efficient code and like to participate in open source projects – we need you. If you are knowledgeable about digital signal processing and pulling signals out of noise – we need you. If you are eager to use your eyes, ears, and mind to help us find anomalies in the data streaming from the Allen Telescope Array – we need you. We need your help to manipulate and explore the real-time data from the telescope, and to create the environments that will allow global participation by Earthlings of all ages.
“setiQuest is an effort to tap into the global brain trust, harness the power of citizen scientists, and educate the next generation of Earthlings to improve current searches for extraterrestrial intelligence and better understand our place in the cosmos. We are creating a community – or if you prefer, a tribe – to actively involve the world in the ultimate search for cosmic company. setiQuest is the concretization of Jill Tarter’s 2009 TED wish to change the world.”
