What is Mad Science?
Mad Science is a playful platform where user can participate and create social experiments to advance our understanding of human behavior.
Mad Science requires your help!
In Mad Science players are immersed into situations where they need to make a decision that involves taking an action or responding to a conversation. The platform is set within a light-hearted take on the mad scientist theme, where we conceive of a “mad scientist” as someone who is intrinsically curious and makes use of inventive and playful ways to explore human behavior. In the world of Mad Science, users join the corporation Mad Science Inc. as one their new mad scientists and are provided with science fiction scientific machinery that allows them to create any kind of scenario, from ethical dilemmas to political conflicts to goofy situations, and then study people within that social context.
The project is in development but we need your help. The platform will have an increasing number of experiments and your participation will help to show the value of this platform for advancing the social and behavioral sciences.
