2019-11-21: GPUGRID, New workunits

I'm loading a first batch of 1000 workunits for a new project (GSN*) on the acemd3 app. This batch is both for a basic science investigation, and for load-testing the app. Thanks!

If you disabled "acemd3" from the preferences for some reason, please re-enable it.

2019-11-21: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Maintance break #24

In next 3-4 days I am planning some cleaning, updating work with my server so it's will be some temporary promblem with access to projects.

2019-11-17: RakeSearch, Results of the first half of the November 2019!

Dear participants!

This November is unusually warm. Autumn does not want to give its last weeks to winter, filling them by fog and rains. And maybe the best symbol of the month like this - a moss! We are used to it and often pass by, not paying attention to moss. But it's very unusual plants! Mosses (and generally - bryophytes) is a separate and parallel branch of land plants with different from other plants' internal structure and organization of the lifecycle and maybe it is one of the first forms of life, that began to inhabit the surface of the continents, emerging from the Earth oceans. About four hundreds of millions of years ago, during Silurian and Devonian periods, lines of ancestors of the modern divisions of plants - are dispersed and the bryophyte line strategy was not the most successful - branches of vascular plants spread above the ground and bryophytes left to live in their shadow. But how much benefit they have brought to human civilization during many and many hundreds of years! We have are many reasons to say thanks to them.
In conclusion, we congratulate the next 120 participants whose computers find pairs with a degree of orthogonality >= 86 and brought to their owners the Moss badge:

2019-11-15: World Community Grid, 15 Years of Shining a Beacon for Science

To mark World Community Grid's 15th anniversary, we're asking you as volunteers, researchers, and supporters to publicly show your support for science on social media, in our forum, and on your own website or blog.

2019-11-13: QuChemPedIA@home, Scientific publication

Hello everybody!

Our article titled "Dataset?s chemical diversity limits the generalizability of machine learning predictions" was accepted and published ! It is an Open Access article :
https://jcheminf.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13321-019-0391-2?fbclid=IwAR0HrALNqT0HRaCUtBMeBcchJxISsiypO2TUJF9zV5EEGK395ODe941Y3_0

If you have any question, feel free to contact us on the forum of the project (under this message).

Cheers !
Benoit

Here is a message from Thomas Cauchy about our reseach :
Hello,

I am the chemist of this project. The publication mentioned by Benoit Da Mota was written when we launch the boinc project. But I can extract some sentences of this article to show what we have in mind :

"Abstract: The QM9 dataset has become the golden standard for Machine Learning (ML) predictions of various chemical properties. QM9 is based on the GDB, which is a combinatorial exploration of the chemical space. ML molecular predictions have been recently published with an accuracy on par with Density Functional Theory calculations. Such ML models need to be tested and generalized on real data. PC9, a new QM9 equivalent dataset (only H, C, N, O and F and up to 9 "heavy" atoms) of the PubChemQC project is presented in thisarticle. A statistical study of bonding distances and chemical functions shows that this new dataset encompasses more chemical diversity. Kernel Ridge Regression, Elastic Net and the Neural Network model provided by SchNet have been used on both datasets. The overall accuracy in energy prediction is higher for the QM9 subset. However, a model trained on PC9 shows a stronger ability to predict energies of the other dataset."

The QM9 dataset has around 130k small molecules, when our PC9 has 119k (but was extracted from another type of calculations). The problem is that the full results of the QM9 are not openly available. They have extracted some results of the costly quantum mechanics calculations and trashed the log. We are not satisfied by PC9 that was a simple demonstration that more diversity is needed.

For the moment the boinc project is aiming at recalculating the interesting molecules of QM9 and PC9 with the same level of calculation this time. All the results will be available at the quchempedia document base https://quchempedia.univ-angers.fr when this platform will be a little bit more robust (beginning 2020) in par with our quality control tool as written by my colleague.
We are not fully happy with NWChem yet. With the same boinc project Benoit Da Mota and myself, are using Gaussian (proprietary) which is much efficient. But Nwchem is open source...
We have calculated roughly 130 k over 200 k thanks to your help!
For December we hope to propose to the community to calculate new molecules that maybe don't even exist and are not stable in order to help machine learning tool to generalize better. Those new molecules will be generated by a machine learning procedure. Too long to explain here right now.

If you have any question...
Kindly
Thomas

2019-11-11: LHCathome-dev, CMS job shortage Wednesday 13th November

CMS IT will be installing a new version of WMAgent on Wednesday. This will impact job availability for the duration of the intervention. We might be able to eliminate the little gremlin that's been plaguing us for the last few weeks, too.
So, please set your CMS processors to No New Tasks sometime tomorrow, Tuesday 12th, so that current tasks will stop requesting new jobs before the queues get cut. I'll let you know when jobs are available again.
Thanks.

2019-11-05: NumberFields@home, vacation

I will be going on a 2 week vacation starting in a couple days. Internet access will be spotty, so I apologize in advance for any delays responding to the boards.

The rest of the project is fully automated and there is plenty of work in the backlog, so no worries there.

2019-11-05: RakeSearch, Testing of application for Raspberry Pi

Hello folks!

We try to build a RakeSearch R10 application for Raspberry Pi. Currently, it runs on the computer 9257 - it's a Raspberry Pi Model 3B+ through an anonymous platform file - app_info.xml.
Vital note: for computing on Pi you must use a combination of heatsinks and airflow! In our case, we install a small aluminum heatsink on the CPU and USB+Network controller and place the board inside desktop computer air outflow. In these conditions temperature of CPU stabilized at 54

2019-11-04: T.Brada Experimental Grid, Windows app for Symmetric Prime Tuples

An application for Windows was recently enabled to search for Symmetric Prime Tuples!
I submitted a bunch of new tasks for this application, which already yelded a interesting soution. Application for linux is also available, but that is old news.
I promise there will be subproject badges, but I won't say when.

2019-11-03: NumberFields@home, New GPU OpenCL versions available

I just deployed the windows AMD openCL version as a beta app. I will monitor results for errors, but please report any strange behavior.

I also deployed newer openCL versions for AMD linux and Nvidia windows. The openCL code had a couple minor tweaks; nothing major.

2019-11-02: RakeSearch, October 2019 totals

Dear participants!

October is over and we are summing it up. 61644 results were received, some interesting pairs were found (you can read about this in scientific October update). In the second half of the month, computers of 95 participants found pairs with a high degree of orthogonality and many of them - take a badge (because they couldn?t do it in the first half)!

2019-11-01: PrimeGrid, Transit of Mercury Across the Sun Challenge

Please join PrimeGrid as we run a 10 day challenge to celebrate this year's transit of Mercury across the sun. This rare astronomical event won't occur again until 2032.

This challenge runs from November 1st 18:04 UTC through November 11th 18:04 UTC on our PSP Prime Search (LLR) Project.

There's 7 k's being tested by our PSP project. Will we be able to find a prime for one of the remaining k's during the challenge? The last PSP prime was found in 2017. (Two additional k's are in both the PSP and SoB projects and are being tested as part of SoB.)

For more information and discussion, please head over to the official challenge thread: https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8864

Good luck!

2019-10-31: iThena, November 1, 2019: Database replication and power sections

Tomorrow (November 1, 2019) I will configure database replication and modify power issues. I will have to shut down the BOINC server for a certain time that day. The website and all BOINC services will not be available.

2019-10-30: World Community Grid, Announcing the Africa Rainfall Project

What if your computer could run weather simulations that could help farmers in Africa successfully grow their crops? We're excited to announce the Africa Rainfall Project, our first project in partnership with The Weather Company.

2019-10-29: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Monkeys v2 and v4 : HALLOWEEN

CHRISTMAS is over
Is time for HALLOWEEN :D


Last 100K WU for CHRISTMAS is start, every new task will have HALLOWEEN with 30 minutes progress time

2019-10-25: Amicable Numbers, The search up to 10^21

The search up to 1021 has started! Over 50,000 new amicable pairs have been found in the first few days.

Due to the huge size of search space, first stage of the search will only look for all amicable pairs where smaller number is of the form 3N*...*p where N > 0 and p
Note that system memory requirements are higher now because all prime numbers

2019-10-22: PrimeGrid, 50 years First ARPANET Connection Challenge

Please join PrimeGrid as we run a 5 day challenge to celebrate 50 years from when the first ARPANET data message was sent between two networked computers. Arpanet was renamed the Internet in 1984, when it linked 1,000 hosts at university and corporate labs.

This challenge runs from October 24th 00:00 UTC through October 29th 00:00 UTC on our 321 Prime Search (LLR) Project.

Last month we found the first known AP27 during the Oktoberfest challenge. Will history repeat itself with the discovery of the first 321 prime in more than 4 years?

For more information and discussion, please head over to the official challenge thread: https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8855

Good luck!

2019-10-21: Universe@Home, Hardware upgrade

I just got info that we finally got new server for project and new database server.
Depend on when I arrive to Warsaw we will be off for about one to two days to move everything to the new machines.

It will happen probably from Thursday 24th October until Friday 26th or week later same days.

2019-10-19: WEP-M+2 Project, 12-digit factor of P2203 has now been found by the project...

2019-10-16: GPUGRID, All acemd3 apps updated (210)

Currently there should be no major *known* bugs. We should cover Win64 and Linux, with reasonably recent cards.

Unfortunately, an internal cleanup in the filenames will make *existing* WUs fail. Sorry about that. Will send new test WUs soon.

By the way, the scheduler for this app will base its decision simply on the CUDA version supported by your driver, rather than other heuristics.

2019-10-13: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Server tunning

I don't have budget for server cabinet for now, but i moved server from desk behind me (to much noise and too hot for me ;) ) to destination shelf with better air flow and access to cooling system.

I have plan for next week:
1. I need to change thermal paste on my CPU because they get host even if no VM if running.
2. I can see that one of cooler is damage is why this CPU get 30 degree more than second one

2019-10-13: iThena, October 14, 2019: Backend / storage - planned tests / changes

Tomorrow (October 14, 2019) I plan to test the changes on the backend / storage side.

In the evening, from 18:00 UTC and later, serious accessibility problems are possible (the server may be offline).

2019-10-10: SETI@Home, Servers Remain Up During Power Outage

Large swaths of Northern California, including the UC Berkeley Campus, are under a Public Safety Power Shutoff due to high winds and the associated wildfire risks. Our servers are located in the campus Data Center which is protected by a high capacity UPS. We expect that our servers will remain up for the duration of the outage. Thus far Internet connectivity also remains up although this depends on factors outside of the Data Center.

2019-10-09: World Community Grid, Planned Maintenance on Thursday, October 10, 2019 ( Completed )

We are updating the operating system on our servers on Thursday, October 10, beginning at 15:00 UTC.

2019-10-09: NumberFields@home, Batch plan

I know some of you like to know the batch plan, so here it is...

Batch 13x270 is nearing completion for subfield 3. After that, we will spend a week or two picking some of the low hanging fruit on subfield 7. Then it's back to subfield 3, batch 13x271. This is a very big batch, so I expect it to last until the end of December, possibly into January.

2019-10-08: GoofyxGrid@Home NCI, Unplanned break

For two days in my area there have been massacre atmospheric conditions through which power lines and fiber optic lines have been broken, hence the break with access to the project.
As far as I know, everything is back to normal with service providers so the project will also come back to life slowly.

2019-10-07: GPUGRID, Acemd3 restart on windows possibly fixed

The new acemd3 app should fix the issue.

Thanks for all the reporting!

Note that one still can't restart between different types of cards.
