- 14:00 – 14:30 : Antoine Coutrot « Sea Hero Quest: Testing the navigation skills of 4 million participants with a video game »
Some people are very good at navigating, others find it a significant challenge. What determines whether someone will succeed or fail to navigate successfully? This talk will briefly explore what might make someone a good navigator looking at demographics, cultural background and genes. Data from the mobile app and video game Sea Hero Quest will be presented revealing world-wide patterns in navigation ability of 3.9 million people, and the potential for tracking subtle cognitive markers for Alzheimer’s disease.
