Humans 1, Machines 0

Technology is great, but nothing can top the power of the human mind. Given the proper conditions, humans can learn just about anything and tackle just about any problem.

Take proteins, for example. Proteins are made up of extremely complex configurations of amino acids that fold in many different ways. Given a large amount of processing power, computers can figure out how protein folding works. Given a game like Foldit and a dedicated following of players, humans can outperform the computers, which begs the question – what else is possible through games?

Imagine an arsenal of science, math, literature, history, and psychology games that leverage the power of the human mind to tackle the world’s biggest problems. The cure for cancer could be lurking in the next great game.

The possibilities, my friend, are endless.
