WORD LINK

A word game which is fun and quick.  Please read the Rules before posting.


Its a simple game where you say a word which is somehow related to the last word. It can be literally related (cow - udder), or unliterally (udder - rudder).
An example would be cow -> udder -> rudder -> steering -> wheel. They are fun and quick. If you get a chance you just post a word.

NFS@HOME

NFS@Home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do the lattice sieving step in the Number Field Sieve factorization of large integers. As a young school student, you gained your first experience at breaking an integer into prime factors, such as 15 = 3 * 5 or 35 = 5 * 7. NFS@Home is a continuation of that experience, only with integers that are hundreds of digits long. Most recent large factorizations have been done primarily by large clusters at universities. With NFS@Home you can participate in state-of-the-art factorizations simply by downloading and running a free program on your computer.

QuChemPedIA

Molecular chemistry is lagging behind in term of open science. Although modelization by quantum mechanics applied to chemistry has become almost mandatory in any major publications, computational raw data is most of the time kept in the labs or destroyed. Furthermore, the softwares used in this domain tend to lack effective quality control and computational details are usually incomplete in the articles. Information may not be reused or reproduced. The first objective of this project is to constitute a large collaborative open platform that will cure and store quantum molecular chemistry results. Original output files will be available to be reused to tackle new chemical studies for different applications. Machine learning and more generally artificial intelligence applied to chemistry data promises to revolutionize the domain in the near future, but these methodes required a lots of data hat this project will be able to provide.

SIDOCK@HOME

In our project, we are looking for ligands – small molecules that can successfully bind to protein targets and modulate a specific process that is crucial for the virus biochemistry. Together we have developed software that can be easily installed on your computer to help participants help find the cure for today's invisible enemy. Based on molecular docking, the ideal ligand should be complementary in shape and properties to the binding site of the target biomolecule. However, the complementarity of small molecules is only one prerequisite for the use of a molecule as a drug.

The search for the right molecule is best illustrated by finding a small needle in a huge haystack. It is a much more difficult problem because of the number of possible molecular structures. The amount of all possible molecular structures is also called the chemical universe – the size of this abstract space can be estimated to be 10 to the power of 80. There are many galaxies in this chemical universe, and one of the galaxies is a galaxy with potentially pharmacologically active molecules. The method for this purpose is called virtual screening. In principle, the larger the part of the chemical universe that we study, the higher the likelihood of finding a potential cure for the coronavirus.

You can help with your computer. With the help of BOINC, you will download a subset of compounds on your computer, examine the compounds in the context of the studied target and send the results to a server where they are collected for later analysis.

GIMPS - Mersenne

GIMPS is a victim of its own success! In 2008, after claiming the EFF award for discovery of the first 10 million digit prime, GIMPS had about $25,000 cash on hand to fund the server hardware, ISP fees, and $3000 awards for discovery of new Mersenne primes. Due to the unexpected, but welcome, discovery of 6 new Mersenne primes since 2008, GIMPS now has enough cash to fund just two years of ISP fees (much less if a new Mersenne prime is discovered).

CAS@HOME

The objective of CAS@home is to encourage and assist scientists in China to adopt the technologies of volunteer computing and volunteer thinking for their research. The project has three parts:

    Organizing hands-on volunteer computing workshops for researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences as well as other scientific institutions in China.
    Launching pilot applications to exploit volunteer computing and volunteer thinking by scientists in China.
    Creating a website with essential information about volunteer computing for Chinese scientists, which is this site.

The project is led by researchers at the Computer Centre of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The project was officially launched in January 2010, with the support of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. A BOINC server was established at IHEP during the first quarter of 2010. A CAS@home master class with two international experts and over 20 participants was held at IHEP on 9 March 2010. In June, tests began of a volunteer computing project that will distribute Short-Cut Threading, an application about protein structure prediction developed by researchers at the Institute of Computing Technology, CAS. In July and August, researchers from IHEP and the international particle physics laboratory, CERN, will collaborate on developing a new volunteer computing application for simulating particle collisions at IHEP's particle accelerator, BEPC.

CORRELIZER

The sequential organization of genomes, i.e. the relations between distant base pairs and regions within sequences, and its connection to the three-dimensional organization of genomes is still a largely unresolved problem. Long-range power-law correlations were found using correlation analysis on almost the entire observable scale of 132 completely sequenced chromosomes of 0.5 x 106 to 3.0 x 107 bp from Archaea, Bacteria, Arabidopsis thaliana, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Drosophila melanogaster, and Homo sapiens. The local correlation coefficients show a species-specific multi-scaling behaviour: close to random correlations on the scale of a few base pairs, a first maximum from 40 to 3,400 bp (for Arabidopsis thaliana and Drosophila melanogaster divided in two submaxima), and often a region of one or more second maxima from 105 to 3 x 105 bp. Within this multi-scaling behaviour, an additional fine-structure is present and attributable to codon usage in all except the human sequences, where it is related to nucleosomal binding. Computer-generated random sequences assuming a block organization of genomes, the codon usage, and nucleosomal binding explain these results. Mutation by sequence reshuffling destroyed all correlations. Thus, the stability of correlations seems to be evolutionarily tightly controlled and connected to the spatial genome organization, especially on large scales. In summary, genomes show a complex sequential organization related closely to their three-dimensional organization.

DISTRIBUTEDDATAMINING

distributedDataMining (dDM) is the name of a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to perform research in the various fields of Data Analysis and Machine Learning. The project uses the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC)  for the distribution of research related tasks to several computers. The intent of BOINC is to enable researchers to tap into the enormous processing power of personal computers around the world. If you are willing to support our research challenges please participate  in the dDM-Project. During the last week, 335 project members spent 47,676 hours computational power on their 598 computers. We - the members of the scientific board - would like to thank all project members for their generous support of our research.

All dDM applications use the open source framework RapidMiner. This data mining suite provides various machine learning methods for data analysis purposes. The RapidMinder uses a comfortable plug-in mechanism to easily add new developed algorithms. This flexibility and the processing power of BOINC is an ideal foundation for scientific distributed Data Mining. The dDM project takes that opportunity and serves as a metaproject for different kind of machine learning applications. Below, you find an overview of our subprojects and the related scientific publications.

DISTRIBUTED HARDWARE EVOLUTION

DHEP allows you to host an island running a Genetic Algorithm in a coevolutionary setting synthesising future super-reliable electronics such as those used in autonomous vehicles, power stations, medical equipment, aerospace. These are of increasingly paramount importance as more and more human lives rely on well functioning hardware.
Observation of population dynamics will also help us understand Evolution, not only to harness it to reach 'better than human' designs, but also to learn how migration rates, genetic diversity and the inner mechanisms of genetic recombination have concerted to reach the biodiversity and wonder of living organisms today.

DHEP is based at the University of Sussex.

DUCHAMP SOURCEFINDER

Sourcefinder is about testing the performance and quality of the Duchamp Sourcefinding application. We've built a simulated cube of the sky containing various radio sources, and it's the job of Duchamp to work out where the sources are. We plan on running Duchamp over the whole cube of simulated data to work how many of the radio sources in the cube it can find. Duchamp will need to be able to identify correct sources while keeping false positives to a minimum.

eOn: LONG TIMESCALE DYNAMICS

A common problem in theoretical chemistry, condensed matter physics and materials science is the calculation of the time evolution of an atomic scale system where, for example, chemical reactions and/or diffusion occur. Generally the events of interest are quite rare (many orders of magnitude slower than the vibrational movements of the atoms), and therefore direct simulations, tracking every movement of the atoms, would take thousands of years of computer calculations on the fastest present day computer before a single event of interest can be expected to occur, hence the name eon, which is an indefinitely long period of time.

    Moderates: those who defend the idea moderately.
    Opponents: those who are against the idea.
    Abstentionists: those who do not care, abstain or have not opinion.

KRYPTOS@HOME

More precisely, it is a sculpture located on the grounds of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Langley, Virginia - at the main entrance to New Headquarters Building (NHB) and in the courtyard between NHB and the Original Headquarters Building (OHB) cafeteria - completed by the American artist James Sanborn, on November 3, 1990.

The Kryptos sculpture comprises four large copper plates, a large vertical S-shaped copper screen resembling a scroll of four encrypted messages, three of which (referred to as K1, K2 and K3) have been solved.

As a community, Kryptos@Home's mission is to crack the elusive K4.

OPTIMA@HOME

OPTIMA@HOME is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to solve challenging large-scale optimization problems. The goal of optimization is to find a minimum (or maximum) for a given function. This topic is perfectly explained in the Internet. See for example excellent explanation by Arnold Newumaier. Many practical problems are reduced to the global optimization problems. At the moment this project runs an application that is aimed at solving molecular conformation problem. This is a very challenging global optimization problem consisting in finding the atomic cluster structure that has the minimal possible potential energy. Such structures plays an important role in understanding the nature of different materials, chemical reactions and other fields. The details about the problem can be found here. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.

With current algorithm it need about 12.000 years of one core at 4Ghz. While we search answers we learn some languages like English, C++, CUDA and OpenCL. Also pumping our brains (looking for NZT), optimize algorithms in our programs and prepearing for solving important tasks for humanity.

SUBSETSUM@HOME

The Subset Sum problem is described as follows: given a set of positive integers S and a target sum t, is there a subset of S whose sum is t? It is one of the well-know, so-called "hard" problems in computing. It's actually a very simple problem, and the computer program to solve it is not extremely complicated. What's hard about it is the running time – all known exact algorithms have running time that is proportional to an exponential function of the number of elements in the set (for worst-case instances of the problem).

In this project, we develops new techniques and used them to modify the program Checker (written by Gary McGuire). We successfully reduced the total expected computation time from 300,000 years per core to 2,417 years per core. This makes it more feasible and reasonable to use BOINC to solve Sudoku. Some of these new techniques are described in a paper in the IWCG Workshop of TAAI 2010 conference.

SURVEILL@HOME

The aim of the project is to deploy a large infrastructure to support thousands of probes monitoring the Internet.

Each probe repeatedly performs a pre-defined set of web transactions on web-sites, accessing each site about 4 times per hour.

The proposed approach allows us to obtain important results on end-user visible failures and performance statics, from several thousands view points spread throughout the Internet.

With the help of the volunteer community we will achieve this ambitious goal.

We are welcoming BOINC users who want to participate in our initial monitoring effort.

This is a "non-CPU" intensive project.

Network traffic consumed by each monitoring job depends on the number of transactions under monitoring. Our estimate is that it will initially not use more than 5 MB per job (maximum jobs per hour limit to 4).

UNIVERSE@HOME TEST

This proposal aims to create the first database of the simulated stellar content of the Universe,
from the earliest stars to the most exotic black hole binaries. This comprehensive stellar library will
be a world-wide scientific resource for astronomers, and an educational asset for the public. With
a state-of-the-art suite of computational tools, we can calculate the physical properties of individual
stars, evolve them in time, and track how they interact with each other as they age. With this library
of stellar populations that spans the known range of star formation histories and initial elemental
abundances, it is possible to tackle fundamental science questions that have been out of reach in
general relativity, astronomy, and cosmology. As a group we will use this database to characterize the
population of supernova progenitor stars that have been used to discover the mysterious dark energy
that accelerates the expansion of the Universe; we can calculate how (if at all) binary evolution
facilitates the formation of ultra-luminous X-ray sources, and we can model the number and physical
properties of neutron stars and black holes that strongly emit gravitational waves that are at the
heart of research into gamma-ray bursts – the most energetic explosions known-to-date. The data
that we create can be mined not only to match current observations, but to predict how the sky
will appear to future astronomical observatories as new windows to the Universe open. Altogether,
this proposal will allow us to consolidate a strong and highly visible research group; an independent
computational center that trains a new cohort of highly educated students, and communicates with
the public via innovative science venues, and offer a fresh look at the Universe.

This proposal aims to create the first database of the simulated stellar content of the Universe,
from the earliest stars to the most exotic black hole binaries. This comprehensive stellar library will
be a world-wide scientific resource for astronomers, and an educational asset for the public. With
a state-of-the-art suite of computational tools, we can calculate the physical properties of individual
stars, evolve them in time, and track how they interact with each other as they age. With this library
of stellar populations that spans the known range of star formation histories and initial elemental
abundances, it is possible to tackle fundamental science questions that have been out of reach in
general relativity, astronomy, and cosmology. As a group we will use this database to characterize the

VIRUS RESPIRATORIO SINCITIAL (VRS)

VRS (from the Spanish Virus Respiratorio Sincitial) is a BOINC-based project which main aim is to simulate the behaviour of the human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). Main facts:

    * It is the major cause of lower respiratory tract infection and hospital visits during infancy and childhood.
    * In Spain, it causes more than 15.000 padiatrician visits per year.
    * It is responsible for more than 18% of the pneumonia elderly hospitalizations.
    * In the United States, 60% of infants are infected during their first RSV season. Nearly all children will have been infected with the virus by 2-3 years of age. Of those infected with RSV, 23% will develop bronchiolitis necessitating hospitalization.

THESKYNET - See POGS

By connecting 100s and 1000s of computers together through the Internet, it's possible to simulate a single machine capable of doing some pretty amazing stuff.

theSkyNet is a community computing project dedicated to radio astronomy. Radio astronomers use radio telescopes (of course) to observe the Universe at radio wavelengths (still with me?). All day, every day, signals from distant galaxies, stars and other cosmic bits and pieces arrive at the Earth in the form of radio waves. Once detected by a radio telescope the signal is processed by computers and used by scientists to support a theory or inspire a new one.
