HTC Project Donates Unused Processor Power To Scientific Research
Chained cell phones have the quivalent amount of power as a supercomputer.
Scientific research requires a lot of brain power, but is also requires a lot of computer processing power. As part of a joint effort with the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC), HTC wants to turn its network of mobile phones into the equivalent of a supercomputer. The combined power of these spare computing cycles would be enough to solve complex problems related to AIDS and Alzheimer’s Disease.
