Today at Mobile World Congress, HTC announced an ambitious distributed computing project that would use spare computing cycles to further scientific research. Partnering with the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing(BOINC), the project would use spare computing cycles to churn through processor-intensive scientific problems, similar to a Samsung project announced earlier this month. The processing load of each individual phone is quite small, but chained together, the phones could be capable of producing supercomputer-level computing power. Under BOINCs guidance, that power could be used to push forward protein folding problems to research treatments for AIDS or Alzheimers Disease.
