by Laurent François

“World Community Grid’s mission is to create the largest public computing grid benefiting humanity. Our work is built on the belief that technological innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can change our world for the better. Our success depends on individuals – collectively contributing their unused computer time to this not-for-profit endeavor.”

It’s the easiest way to contribute without doing anything. No donations, no time commitment…simply a quick install of a safe app and you’re already on your way to helping find a cure for dread diseases and solve world hunger problems. The principle : using computers idle time to share calculation power around the world to fasten solutions to big problems like diseases etc.
