Scientists at the Technical University of Braunschweig proposed using phones to supercomputers organizations in places where people congregate. The study authors noted that one mobile device has low computing ability, offering about 5.8 million calculations per second, but with the help of wireless networks or connect via USB, this limitation is easily overcome.
As conceived by scientists to create supercomputers can use crowdsourcing model, but instead of human volunteers for the task will use their mobile phones.
Relatively low-power devices can be combined in a single computer network using Wi-Fi in public places – such as on trains or at railway stations. “This will make the necessary calculations and generate detailed weather forecast. Or joint efforts can crack the protected wireless network nearby, “ - wrote German scientists who have conducted experimental launch of this “superkomyutera” on Android-based smartphones.
