Jacob Sherson, Quantum Physicist at Aarhus University and project leader at Qubiz receives this year’s Communication Award for attracting a broad level of attention to his research through relevant dissemination.
Together with ScienceAtHome research group Jacob has developed Quantum Moves – a computer game that allows ordinary people without an academic background to help solve problems within quantum science.
The player of the computer game Quantum Moves must move an atom from one location to another – a game and a method that draws on the unique ability of people to solve problems intuitively compared to the enormous computing power of computers.
So far more than 200,000 people around the world have participated by playing the game.
In addition to the honour of receiving the Award Jacob Sherson receives DKK 100,000.
The price is given by the Minister for Higher Education and Science and this year Award was presented by H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary at the opening of the Danish Science Festival at Experimentarium on April 24th, 2017.
