This is not about Covid-19, but an inspiring idea — scientists gamified problems they were trying to solve, and when they could harness a big population of different types of people they solved the problems in weeks, not years. Can we implement something similar to put all these idle man hours of people sheltered in place towards doing good and solving big questions?
