Everything that I have read on the site has made me extremely interested in this. However, I have no experience in any field even remotely close to anything relevent. But I want to be a part of this for sure. How can I get started? What do I need to get started? What exactly would I be doing?

The human brain is better at

The human brain is better at identifying visual patterns than any computer. We want to harness that power through the development of software that can transform any interested person into a citizen scientist. The setiQuest program is split into discrete projects each requiring the active participation of humans of a broad range of scientific and engineering abilities including citizen scientists, game designers & open-source programmers. Over the coming weeks on this site you will discover projects that you can sign up for and be an active part of the greatest discovery ever.
