  4. The idea of an own BOINC project comes up from time to time in our discussions, no doubt under the influence of that delicious blond or brown liquid: Belgian beer. There have been some valid ideas, but the talks always went silent after a short while since nobody in the team actually knows what it involves to set up and run a BOINC project.

  9. Cels@Home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in cell adhesion. One of the many applications of this is in cancer research, as the point at which cancerous cells quit staying in place, and instead break free to move throughout the body, is a critical event that makes the disease much harder to treat.

  14. Currently only the few big search engines can give access to the basic data needed to do intensive studies of the web. But they don't give access to their raw data and therefore results based on their data have been looked at very carefully. DepSpid on the contrary is supposed to give researchers in this area free access to its raw data for doing their studies.

  20. Donate at home is a fund raising initiative. Donate@Home allows participants to donate towards funding by using their GPU to ‘mine for BitCoins’. This novel way of generating funding involves contributing within the bitcoin experiment. Crunchers don’t gain bitcoins in this project, the project convert these into standard currencies to raise enough funds through the collective contribution to give fellowships to research students for the Gpugrid project.

  28. he Goldbach's weak conjecture states that every odd number greater than 7 can be expressed as the sum of three odd primes. Liu Ming-Chit and Wang Tian-Ze proved that for numbers greater than 2·101346 Goldbach's weak conjencture is true, so checking every number under this figure is perfect for using Distributing Computing architecture like BOINC. And this would make the weak Goldbach conjecture effectively proved.

  41. The project sifts through possible solutions, using the decompiled physics algorithms from each game. Possible solutions that are not solved after 1,000 frames are rejected. The goal of this project is to create walkthroughs with the games' optimal solutions. A solution is optimal if it uses the least number of objects required to win the level.

  62. sudoku@vtaiwan is one of V-Taiwan projects that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in sudoku. You can participate as a volunteer by downloading and running programs on your computer. In this project, we develop new techniques and use them to modify the program Checker (written by Gary McGuire). We successfully reduced the total expected computation time from 300,000 years per core to 2,417 years per core. This makes it more feasible and reasonable to use BOINC to solve Sudoku. Some of these new techniques are described in a paper in the IWCG Workshop of TAAI 2010 conference.
