"Modern technology development is driven by data. CrowdSignals will accelerate innovation in many disciplines for the good of humanity. Data collection campaigns like this are expensive, time consuming and very hard for any single research group to organize - CrowdSignals will provide a competitive edge at an excellent value for researchers both in academia and industry."
