Samsung has developed an app which will allow users to make vital contributions to cancer and Alzheimer’s research in your sleep. The app, known as Power Sleep, was developed alongside the University of Vienna and works like an alarm clock. You plug in your smartphone and activate the app before you go to sleep. The app then makes use of only your phone’s CPU capabilities while not accessing any personal information. Your phone, along with the phones of other participants are turned into a network that functions as an open-sourced protein calculation base. The data collected will aid in finding cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. The app is free to download and free of charge to use so long as your smartphone is connected to wifi.
