perhaps the intuition humans use for folding proteins can be defined by a finite set of rules of thumb. If this was the case, human folding of proteins could be reliably simulated by computers and carried out at a much higher speed.
Those rule of thumbs could possibly be discovered by having people thinking aloud while trying to design proteins via foldit and having those thoughts recorded.
