This helps our research in:

  • How to solve a quantum game without training in physics. 
  • Computer algorithms that can become more efficient 
  • E.g. in selecting the relevant information in a given task.

Quantum Minds studies the human learning process as a player encounters gamified quantum physics problems. How do people solve the quantum challenge with little or no training in physics? Play Quantum Minds to help us answer this question! If you are new to our quantum games, you can also check out Quantum Moves 2 here!

The goal of Quantum Minds is to play through four levels of increasing difficulty. To unlock the next level, you must completed the current three times in a row. This is no easy task, so don't be easily discouraged! Also remember that every attempt is valuable data to scientists; here the journey is truly more interesting than the final destination.

Quantum Minds is a collaborative project between physicists and cognitive scientists. We are interested in seeing how players progress as they play the game. We will look for "bottlenecks", the parts of the game (and hence the underlying physics problem!) that pose the biggest challenges for the players, and study how players overcome them. Besides contributing to cognitive learning theories, getting a deeper understanding of the human problem solving will help scientists create better algorithms for solving quantum problems.
