Jacob is originally a quantum physicist and has previously set a world record for quantum teleportation and is now trying to build a quantum computer. In an unconventional approach to optimization, he established the citizen science project ScienceAtHome seeking to utilize gamification to exploit the unique human intuition. The first citizen quantum optimization results were published in 2016 in Nature and received global media attention; LA Times wrote “Take that AI, video gamers solve quantum physics mystery”.
