World of Warcraft and THE SCIENCE

In 2007, this event could appear in famous scientific journals like SCIENCE, and these articles underlined the many similarities between this virtual epidemic in World of Warcraft and the real epidemics in real life.

So would video games help advance disease prevention?



Researchers generally use simulations
Players play simulations that are sometimes close to reality

SO WHY NOT MIX THE TWO?

Conclusion

75%

Before the episode of corrupted blood, no epidemic model made it possible to take into account certain types of behavior, which meant that researchers seriously underestimated the speed of spread of diseases.

And After?

But one does not prevent the other, we could let researchers experiment on online games that would allow them to incorporate more human behavior into their models and improve their models.

The proposal to use multiplayer game players for science was refused by the game studios, who explained that they just wanted to entertain people and not make them guinea pigs.

In the future NERD>SCIENTIST?
