Intel Philanthropic Peer-to-Peer Program

Intel is working with the scientific community on a distributed computation project that enables the average PC user to perform acts of PC Philantropy, or the donation of unused computing resources to benefit charity. Intel's goal is to build the largest virtual supercomputer to date with cooperative-computing software that will link millions of users to a P2P network passing processing power to medical researchers. Users can currently download software to help the United Devices Cancer Research Program search for new drugs, or help the Stanford Alzheimer and Amyloidogenic Disease Research Program study protein misfolding. To participate users need an Intel-compatible PC with 48 Mb of RAM, a 500 Mb hard drive with 20 Mb free, an internet connection and an 800x600 256 color display. The United Devices Cancer Research Program software requires Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT4/XP. The Stanford Alzheimer Research Program requires Windows 2000/NT4.
