Hello and welcome to the team Guru3D in the fight against cancer.
This program is just like SETI@home except it does something really useful, it finds cures for diseases like cancer. Which in our book is a lot more worthwhile than hunting for E.T.
What does the Guru3D United Devices team do? Basically you install a little piece of software. This software calculates data and transmits the data over the internet.
Does my internet always have to be on? No!
As the program runs, it uses your computer to begin processing a small packet of data. Once processing is complete (about a day later), the program sends the results back to a server and requests a new packet of data. If you aren't online when the processing is done, your computer will wait to send and receive data packets until the next time you're connected to the Internet.
The research program operates in the background, so you shouldn't notice it's running during computer use. It's designed to run only when computing resources are unused. As soon as you run an application that needs computing power, the research program will back down, and your computing performance will not be noticeably affected.
- The United Devices Cancer Research Program
It was developed specifically to search for new drugs that can help in the treatment of leukaemia and other cancers.
