VODAFONE FOUNDATION’S DREAMLAB APP
In partnership with scientists at Imperial College London, we are working day and night help find a cure for cancer and Covid-19. Together we have developed Vodafone Foundation’s DreamLab app – an easy way for anyone to support medical research while they sleep.
The app turns your smartphone into a supercomputer by harnessing its unused processing power to analyse complex data. With this ground-breaking app, you can help process billions of calculations that help speed up vital Covid-19 and cancer research while your phone is charging overnight, without your location data being collected or disclosed. This cloud-based processing approach has drastically reduced the time it takes to analyse huge amounts of data. A desktop computer running 24 hours a day would take decades to process the data, but a network of 100,000 smartphones running overnight could do the job in just a couple of months.
