World Community Grid announces that members have returned more than 1 Billion results.
The results that you, together with the World Community Grid volunteer community, have "crunched" on your computers have been sent to research scientists around the world for analysis. These results have helped to advance humanitarian causes such as researching treatments for AIDS, Muscular Dystrophy, different forms of Cancer, Schistosoma, Malaria, Leishmaniasis and more. Your efforts have also helped advance research which addresses important environmental issues, including improving water quality, developing technologies to access clean water, increasing ways to harness solar power, and improving world nutrition. None of this would have been possible without the wonderful contributions of all of our volunteers!
As our community has grown, the compute power available for humanitarian research has accelerated. We now return over 1 million results per day. The following reflects how the rate at which we return results has accelerated since World Community Grid was launched in November 2004:
It has taken a community of over 590,000 individuals, who have collectively contributed to World Community Grid, to achieve this major accomplishment. We are extremely grateful for your contribution. Without you, this compute power would not be available to help accelerate the kind of important scientific research we all care about.
