QuakeFinder & NASA have partnered on a crowdsourcing ‘Quest For Quakes’ competition

QuakeFinder and NASA have teamed on a crowdsourcing ‘Quest For Quakes’ competition. Contestants from around the world will compete to develop algorithms capable of identifying Earth-emitting electromagnetic (EM) signals known to be present in the days and weeks before M 5+ earthquakes. An award pool of $25,000 is available for those that develop winning approaches. The contest runs from July 27, 2015 through August 9, 2015. QuakeFinder is a Humanitarian R&D effort aimed at developing an Earthquake early warning forecast capability. S [...] Continue Reading
