More and more companies are integrating machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) into their products. Last year was unusually fruitful. We experienced the release of Github Copilot, DALL-E 2, Stable Diffusion, ChatGPT and many other interesting AI services. Getting your company onboard with ML and AI can be challenging. The number of experts in this field is still far below market demand. The path to become an AI professional is rigorous and long. You need to master aspects of software engineering, database and big data management, statistics, and many…

For nearly two decades, volunteer distributed computing projects have helped advance scientific research and understanding of infections and hereditary diseases. Scientists need to understand how diseases work to formulate therapies to fight them. One key way to arrive at this understanding is to create models and run multitudes of molecular dynamics simulations.  These simulations are huge and resource-intensive. Even with the help of big cloud providers and onsite clusters, scientists still need computation resources to power these simulations. Using client-server systems like BOINC, volunteers run simulations called work units using…
