Amy Robinson Sterling

As the Executive Director of EyeWire, produced by the crowdsourcing and non-profit organization Wired Differently, Amy has played a huge role in the EyesOnALZ project (formerly WeCureALZ). EyeWire is a way to crowdsource data analysis, and was created to solve challenges in neuroscience. Specifically researchers wanted to know about neurons in the brain, which process information through complicated networks of electrochemical synapses. When Amy met up with Sebastian Seung, then a professor of neuroscience at MIT, and now a professor at Princeton University, she began working at MIT to help with the communication side of EyeWire. Amy believes the potential of crowdsourcing in citizen science is limitless, and that through creativity and imagination, formulating new approaches to science is as easy as playing puzzle-solving games.
