Professor Muki Haklay, Co-Director of the Extreme Citizen Science (ExCiteS) research group at UCL, asks what happens when instead of asking the crowd for help, the question of what is explored is handed over to the participants?

The potential of bottom-up citizen science has increased dramatically in the past decade. To understand this, we can look at the societal and technological changes that led to this proliferation, and then explore the challenges, risks and opportunities that this approach present.
