Bringing Computers Together

The internet is about to unleash the full potential of the world’s computers. Gridding computers together over the internet allows idle computers to compute problems originating from other machines.

This technology could soon be focused on genetic decoding projects, and the search for the intricate biological origins of diseases like cancer, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer.
