Distributed Computing Projects


Distributed computing is a field of computer science for the study of distributed systems, that is separate networks and or nodes that work together to achieve a common objective. A distributed computer system has the benefit of a greater amount of processing power to utilise in processing computationally heavy work.

There are a number of real world distributed computing projects with different missions. Below are projects that Black Star Games is currently supporting. You to can participate and if you do you can do so individually or you if you would prefer you can join teams such as ours.


Folding@Home

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.
