What can I do to help modern scientific challenges? Do I need to have a degree?
No, you don’t need a degree! Your computer’s idle time is enough: you know, sometimes you leave your computer on but you’re not using it, or maybe you have a brand-new multi-core computer but you actually use only one core.
Well, why waste those precious but unused computational resources? Donate them to research! How? It’s easy!
BOINC is a program that lets you donate your idle computer time to the science projects of your choice: you just have to install it and select those which you deem most valuable (you will be showed a list of the available projects with a brief description). Then BOINC will do all the work: it will download the calculations that need to be done, it will let your computer do those calculations (only when there are unused resources), and then it will send back the results. All this won’t need your interaction: you only have to chose which science projects you want to donate your computer’s idle time to, that’s all!
