Use Your GPU and CPU to Fight Coronavirus

Anyone with a Windows, Linux or MacOS can contribute to the invention of the cure for COVID-19, all thanks to the [email protected] application developed by Stanford University.

You too can help fight the coronavirus!
IN A NUTSHELL:
  • Thanks to [email protected], every PC owner can contribute to the search for a cure for COVID-19 or other diseases;
  • The application does not slow down the computer, but increases power consumption.

Nvidia has posted an appeal on Twitter to encourage players to use [email protected]. This is an online project launched in 2000 by Stanford University to find effective ways to combat incurable diseases - all by harnessing the processing power of a network of computers owned by volunteers from around the world. Among the illnesses examined by [email protected] is the novel coronavirus that is wreaking havoc around the world.

It's very easy to take part in the program. Just download [email protected] app from this website, install it and run it. When the program asks us about your preferred illness, select "Any Disease". (the coronavirus is now top priority). The data thus obtained will be transferred to laboratories around the world in open cooperation, giving scientists new tools to fight the disease.

[email protected] runs on the computer with the lowest possible priority, using only unused resources. The program doesn't interfere with everyday work, we can also turn it off at any time (the next time you run the application will continue from the moment it was last run). [email protected] has only one disadvantage: a PC with the program on is still running at full power, so it consumes more power. The application is available on Windows, Linux and MacOS.
