Games With a Purpose can enable an intelligent agent to persistently and pervasively sense the real world by using game players as reconfigurable sensors. We propose a technique whereby an intelligent agent incentivizes players to collect data by translating data collection tasks into a series of quests played on a mobile device. In this paper, we define the concept of Proactive Sensing and provide a framework for Game-Based Proactive Sensing that can adapt games and narrative that optimizes for data collection and long-term player engagement.
