Cure Alzheimer’s Folding@Home
Folding@Home was started in 2000 by Vijay Pande, a Stanford University Professor, and today it boasts of having 279, 000 members. It is one of the fasted computing systems of the world. It simulates how the proteins in your body can assemble themselves. And in case of a misfire, how they could cause diseases.
Find Aliens SETI@Home
If you are a fan of UFOs, then you could actually use your GPU for helping the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) at the University of California in Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory. With the aim of separating unwanted noise received from the space that might point out some transmission from ET, SETI@Home examines the data received from the Arecibo radio telescope. It was originally started in the year 1999, but till date they haven’t found any signs or proof of an extra terrestrial, and are still making efforts to find it.
Hunt for Treasure Bitcoin
Although its true origin isn’t clear, there’s a lot of computer science involved in “distributed consensus” system which tracks the Bitcoin expenditure and generation of currency. Since past 3-4 years the popularity of Bitcoin has substantially increased. A bitcoin was valued at $2 in October 2011, but now it’s around $96. In fact in the month of April this value reached its peak at $266. A highly proficient machine is required for making huge profits or it can be just an enjoyable game.
Search for the Cure GPUGRID
Your GPU could even join in the struggle against HIV. To analyze the structure, movement and functioning of an atom to gain more understanding on HIV maturation, cancer drug resistance, and why do some proteins involved in the neural disorders resist the treatment, Catalonia’s Universitat Pompeu Fabra, GPUGRID had hosted an event. Although, GPUGrid is small with just 2,000 active contributors, since 2007 it has blended many works like explaining the HIV’s maturation process, which was in fact simulated for the very first time.
Do It All World Community Grid
Through World Community Grid you aren’t just helping or being member of a project but you will be joining around 66,000 others who will help by giving their contribution in the projects of organization that include clean water, AIDA & clean energy research.
