In a recent internal letter from one of our VP’s:
Through the World Community Grid, IBM is helping researchers and scientists find a cure for HIV/AIDS, malaria, SARS and many of the deadliest diseases known to humankind. Join more than 60,000 people across the planet, who are already part of this grid by signing up for this innovative program today. As one team, we can help solve some of the most serious problems facing the world.
After you sign up, your computer joins a grid of more than 90,000 machines that work together to analyze problems that require a large amount of computing power – such as the unfolding of proteins. There is no further effort required on your part after signing up. Reaching out to the most vulnerable people has never been this simple.
