Your Computer Can Help IBM Find A Better Solar Material

A friend of mine once pointed to a small icon in his taskbar. He told me that it was a program which utilized his laptop’s unused computing power to perform calculations. While he was idle, his computer (and thousands like it) was doing work and sending the results to a centralized location.

Such is the work of World Community Grid, an organization which uses this kind of viagra how much distributed computing to visit web site cheap generic levitra dramatically shorten the length of time it takes to make progress in a research project that involves running untold numbers of calculations. For example, by using these programs to help identify potential drug targets for smallpox in 2003, scientists cut computing time down from one year to three months.

Now WCG’s sponsor – IBM – is doing a bit of solar R&D right now, developing thin film cells and solar concentrators. Why not use the WCG technology to give that research a little boost? That’s exactly what IBM and Harvard University are working on. They are planning on how to buy cialis running thousands of materials and compounds through the system to analyze which ones would make the india viagra best solar cells.

Sure, this is investigation by brute force. But the beauty is that with WCG, brute force analyses can be conducted within a reasonable time frame. According to Harvard’s Alan Aspuru-Guzik, this particular project will take 2 years instead of 22. Let’s hope they find something new, though. It would be a pity to find that the best materials are the ones we already have.

Intel Puts its Green in China

Intel Capital is the investment arm of the Intel we all know, and it seems that green technology is on its agenda (EcoGeek logo fiasco aside). The company has recently invested $20 million into Trony Solar Hodlings Co., a company that makes thin film solar and specializes in building-integrated installations. Another investment went to NP Holdings, Ltd., who makes electric storage systems.

It is no surprise why China is becoming a burgeoning home for cleantech ventures. It has the industrial capacity and – more importantly, right now – capital. As we’ve mentioned with the wind power industry, capital and credit are two things that the US could use more of these days, and that the Chinese government has to wow)) viagra online store offer. And so while investors and VCs flock to the other side of the Pacific, all the US cleantech startups can do is sigh.

Green Search Engine Knows What You're Looking For

Web 3.0 is still a new concept, but a new search engine called Truevert wants ecogeeks to be the first to benefit from it.

Truevert, as an example of Web 3.0, utilizes smart browsing, where the buy viagra at a discount search engine learns the meaning of words through context to improve searches. Truevert has learned words in a green context so that all searches are done from an environmental point of view. If you're searching for the word "solar," the engine knows you mean solar energy, not just anything having to do with the sun.

Other green search engines exist, but Truevert is different because it's not just scouring green websites. It's using the learned context to search all of the web, allowing for more thorough results.

For those of us who are constantly looking for green information, this could be a real asset and time saver.
