How It Works
Formed by Users Idle Smartphones
Companies/Organisations With High Performance Computing Needs
Pay to use supercomputer
Proceeds Are Divided Between User Selected Charities
Adaid uses volunteer computing. The principle is to take enormous, expensive computing jobs and chop them into 1000s of small pieces, each simple enough for a smartphone to work on during the hours when the device normally does nothing, whilst you are asleep.
By bringing together 1000s of smartphones we will create the worlds most powerful supercomputer. Organisations can rent this supercomputer with the proceeds going to a charity of your choice.
