Crowdsourcing App Takes Aim at COVID-19

By installing the [email protected] software program, anyone with a computer, gaming console, or even some phones and some compute cycles to spare can contribute to the work of coronavirus researchers around the world.


[email protected] is a distributed computing project from Stanford University's Pande Lab in Palo Alto, California, directed by Vijay Pande, PhD.


Participants can configure the [email protected] application to run in the background all the time or just when a machine is idle.

"We need your help! [email protected] is joining researchers around the world working to better understand the 2019 Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to accelerate the open science effort to develop new life-saving therapies," he wrote.


"By downloading [email protected], you can donate your unused computational resources to the [email protected] Consortium, where researchers working to advance our understanding of the structures of potential drug targets for 2019-nCoV that could aid in the design of new therapies," Bowman continued.


"The data you help us generate will be quickly and openly disseminated as part of an open science collaboration of multiple laboratories around the world, giving researchers new tools that may unlock new opportunities for developing lifesaving drugs."

NVIDIA Calls On PC Gamers To Put GPUs To Work Battling Coronavirus, How To Join PC Master Race Or HotHardware

Earlier this week, we told you about Stanford University's [email protected] project, which is now providing CPU-based projects and workloads that you can use for COVID-19 (coronavirus) folding to battle the pandemic disease. Plenty of enthusiasts are open to using their spare CPU cycles for a good cause, and interest has been running high.





Now, however, NVIDIA has issued a call to action for enthusiasts with GPUs -- that should be most of you out there reading this -- to join in on the efforts. More specifically, NVIDIA is urging folks to join the PC Master Race (PCMR) team to put idle GPU resources to good use to fold for coronavirus-specific GPU projects. However you can also join us in the fight here at HotHardware as well.


Luckily, getting started with [email protected] is a simple affair, with the first step being to download the installer. And if you need help with getting up and running with the software, you can follow these handy guides for Windows, macOS, or Linux. We should also note that you don't have to dedicate all available resources to folding, as there are Light, Medium, and High settings that you can choose (with the expected hits to power consumption on your system). You can also set the program to work at all times, or only when your system is idle.

You can find out more about [email protected]'s efforts to assist researchers in the fight against COVID-19, here.

Open COVID Pledge Makes Critical IP Freely Accessible for Pandemic Fight


Legal experts and leading scientists have teamed up with Creative Commons to create the Open COVID Pledge to help speed up the battle against the coronavirus pandemic.


The Pledge gives broad permission to anyone to use intellectual property not otherwise accessible to the public, and generally replaces the need for any other license or royalty agreement.

3D Printers Join Arsenal of COVID-19 Weapons

The worldwide 3D printing community is stepping up to alleviate the shortage of medical equipment needed to battle the coronavirus pandemic.


Participants include entrepreneurs and hackers, companies in the 3D printing industry, automobile makers, aircraft manufacturers, universities, and even a shipbuilder.


Some are offering free 3D printer files for download and use. Others are designing equipment. Still others are offering to produce medical equipment for the cost of the materials. Some are offering to connect medical and healthcare organizations to 3D printing facilities.


The 3D printing industry has set up a Discord server for members to discuss or organize printing projects to deal with the pandemic.
