Imperial College London: Smartphone users to help simulate cyclones and predict effects of climate change

Imperial College London: Smartphone users to help simulate cyclones and predict effects of climate change. “The Vodafone Foundation’s DreamLab app harnesses the computing power of smartphones while their users sleep. With over two million downloads across 17 countries to date, the network of smartphones created by DreamLab is equivalent to a virtual supercomputer capable of processing billions of calculations, without collecting or disclosing any user data. In the first phase of the project, the Imperial College Storm Model (IRIS) will be fed with existing historical data on cyclones in different regions of the world.”
