World Community Grid harnesses computing power against pandemics & more

Techstination feature for Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      Your computer or even mobile phone can help in finding answers to the Covid-19 pandemic.    IBM,  Scripps Research  and the World Community Grid have created  a project called Open Pandemics-Covid-19…..that allows you to volunteer to let your idle computer or Android phone use their processing power to help.   IBM’s Social Responsibility Manager Juan Hindo…

“It’s really a way for the Scripps scientists in this case…to take these millions of calculations and spread them out amongst our volunteer community and have each of our volunteers install the World Community Grid app on their device and by doing that they get to run one of these simulations on behalf of the Scripps scientists.”

The site is www.worldcommunitygrid.org.
