Demis Hassabis and John Jumper from DeepMind delivered parts 1 and 2 of this year's Kendrew lecture (named for the scientist who solved the first crystal structure of a protein) at Cambridge. Hassabis again credits Foldit with sparking his interest in the protein folding problem (at about 25:40).

Kendrew Lecture 2021 pt1 - Using AI to accelerate scientific discovery - Demis Hassabis

Kendrew Lecture 2021 pt2 - Highly accurate protein structure prediction with AlphaFold - John Jumper

Thanks for this!

Thank you for sharing this, Susume!
(Even more of a Foldit shout out than his keynote talk at CASP 14 :-)

John Jumper and David Baker's PDB50 talks are now online

The Protein Data Bank (PDB) marked its 50th birthday this year with a virtual symposium, with talks from John Jumper (from AlphaFold), David Baker, and many others.

For anyone interested, you can view the (non-Foldit related) talks here:
