BOINC: Your cellphone helping humanity

Not always is there a chance to help humanity without effort or cost. The project BOINCfrom Berkeley University, Allows your smartphone to help you research for disease cure, asteroid routes and climate change.. See how.

<p>The BOINC stands for <em>Berkeley Open Infrastucture For Network Computing</em>  distributed computing platform (<em>crowd computing</em>, which facilitates the sharing of idle data processing capacity. Usually, it is downloaded as a program to your computer, and it works constantly and quietly without disturbing the performance of the device. What few know BOINC is also available as an app on the Google Play Store.</p><div class=

One of them has Einstein as a patron (right).</figure>
<p>You can therefore also donate the idle capacity of your smartphone or tablet to BOINC, and it will redirect you to scientific data analysis. The project to be benefited is your choice, and it must be said that it is very difficult to decide whether to cure malaria in Zambia, research on climate change, or search for pulsars and asteroids on a possible collision course with Earth.</p>

Most interestingly, this project was designed to cost the donor nothing. When you don't use your smartphone, the app goes into action, but always with lower priority, so it doesn't disturb other programs or slow down the device. The battery is also preserved, and when it drops to less than 90% the app stops working. Finally, BOINC only uses the Wi-Fi network and therefore does not interfere with the data transfer limit of your plan.

An excellent idea that deserves support, don't you think?
