Projects, Causes & Volunteering

 BOINCSince 2001, I’ve been in the TOP rank as volunteer in the use of BOINC: a distributed computing software platform that I’ve installed on a rock solid and powerful workstation completely designed and assembled by me. The projects I have been contributing are Rosetta@Home, that helps the research develop cures for chronic illnesses, and Seti@Home, that analyzes radio signals, searching for signs of ETI. Over time, my workstation has completed more work units than 95% of all BOINC contributors.

RosettaRosetta@home: distributed computing project for protein structure prediction on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) platform, run by the Baker laboratory at the University of Washington. Rosetta@home aims to predict protein–protein docking and design new proteins with the help of about sixty thousand active volunteered computers processing at 83 teraFLOPS on average as of April 18, 2014. Foldit, a Rosetta@Home videogame, aims to reach these goals with a crowdsourcing approach. Though much of the project is oriented towards basic research on improving the accuracy and robustness of the proteomics methods, Rosetta@home also does applied research on malaria, Alzheimer’s disease and other pathologies.

CroceThe Italian Red Cross (IRC, Italian: Croce Rossa Italiana or CRI) is the Italian national Red Cross society that has its origin in the Comitato dell’Associazione Italiana per il soccorso ai feriti ed ai malati in guerra in Milan on June 15, 1864. Other committees were formed later. The Italian Red Cross was one of the original founding members of the International Red Cross in 1919.The American Red Cross has long been active in Italy, working in cooperation with the Italian Red Cross. Ernest Hemingway worked for the American Red Cross in Italy in 1918. The American Red Cross continues to have an office in Naples, Italy.

Atlas@HomeATLAS@Home is a research project that uses volunteer computing to run simulations of the ATLAS experiment at CERN. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.
ATLAS is a particle physics experiment taking place at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, that searches for new particles and processes using head-on collisions of protons of extraordinary high energy. Petabytes of data were recorded, processed and analyzed during the first three years of data taking, leading to up to 300 publications covering all the aspects of the Standard Model of particle physics, including the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012.

SetiSETI@home: is an Internet-based public volunteer computing project employing the BOINC software platform, hosted by the Space Sciences Laboratory, at the University of California, Berkeley, in the United States. SETI is an acronym for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. Its purpose is to analyze radio signals, searching for signs of extra terrestrial intelligence, and is one of many activities undertaken as part of SETI. SETI@home was released to the public on May 17, 1999, making it the second large-scale use of distributed computing over the Internet for research purposes, as Distributed.net was launched in 1997. Along with MilkyWay@home and Einstein@home, it is the third major computing project of this type that has the investigation of phenomena in interstellar space as its primary purpose.

WikiWikimedia Foundation: The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to encouraging the growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual, educational content, and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge. The Wikimedia Foundation operates some of the largest collaboratively edited reference projects in the world, including Wikipedia, a top-ten internet property. The Wikimedia Foundation is proud to be one of the most transparent non-profit American organizations in the world.

MIPThe Windows Insider program by Microsoft allows users to sign up for early builds of the Windows operating system previously only accessible to developers.It was announced on September 30, 2014 along with Windows 10. By the end of 2014 over 1.5 million people have already installed the Windows 10 technical preview. On February 12, 2015, Microsoft used the program to deliver a preview for the mobile phone version of Windows 10. Microsoft announced that the Windows Insider program would continue beyond the official release of Windows 10 for future updates.
