Cei de la Samsung Electronics Austria au încheiat un parteneriat cu Universitatea din Viena și au dezvoltat o aplicație pentru Android tare frumoasă. Aceasta funcționează ca un ceas cu alarmă și folosește puterea procesorului unui smartphone/unei tablete Samsung în scopuri științifice (detalii mai jos). Cheil Worlwide a creat această aplicație.

The latter lets you donate your unsed CPU cycles that would otherwise be wasted while charging, to  create a ‘supercloud computer’ accessible to researchers all over the world.

The app works in background, right when you’re at sleep. Unused CPU cycles are used to compute chunks of data usually under 1MB. Researchers at the University of Vienna then collate the collective database of small calculation series from participants all over the world. The data is turned into an open-sourced protein-calculation database that can then be used by the scientific community to find a cure for diseases like Alzheimer’s.
