Will.i.am and Professor Myles Allen discuss weatherathome and Intel’s Progress thru Processors
21 May, 2012
The pop star Will.i.am visited CPDN in Oxford to promote Intel’s Progress thru Processors initiative, which is looking to help CPDN’s weatherathome project. Will and Professor Myles Allen, head of CPDN, discussed the way computers across the world are being used for public good, enabling people to donate their computer’s power when it is idle to help science researchers for anything from predicting climate change to curing cancer.
Weatherathome seeks to understand how climate change may be producing damaging – or beneficial – weather events affecting people’s lives in specific regions of the world.
