Help Nvidia Fight Covid-19 from Your Home Computer (folding@home)

Nvidia folding data folding@home to help map trends of the Coronavirus outbreak to help fight the Covid-19 pandemic and hopefully help speed up the Coronavirus cure. While you are stuck at home you can lend your computing power to fold data and crunch numbers.

If you have a gaming PC, you can lend your graphical power to fighting the COVID-19 outbreak. That’s not a thing I ever thought I’d write, but it turns out 2020 is occasionally weird in good ways too.

Nvidia is putting out a call to PC gamers everywhere to download the Folding@home application and start putting their spare clock cycles toward advancing humanity’s scientific knowledge of coronavirus. The program links computers into an international network that uses distributed processing power to chew through massive computing tasks – something that gaming-grade GPUs are quite good at, as it turns out. You can still turn the application off and reclaim your GPU’s full power for playing games whenever you want.

YouTube Bans THOUSANDS Of Channels – Hate Speech, Conspiracy Theories & Harmful Content [NEWS]

YouTube to close 1000’s of Hate Speech, Conspiracy Theory and Harmful content channels – In an announcement made on the YouTube blog last night (5/June/2019) YouTube has announced its stricter approach to the grey area of Youtube Content.


YouTube will delete thousands of accounts after banning “supremacists”, conspiracy theorists and other harmful accounts, it has claimed. The decision was made after an in-depth review of its rules on hateful content, YouTube said. While it has always banned hate content in general, the site has allowed some specific kinds of harmful videos – such as those promoting Nazi ideology or claiming 9/11 did not happen – to continue being hosted on the site. Those videos, as well as other kinds of “supremacist” content, will now be officially banned. “Today, we’re taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status,” it wrote in a blog post. That is expected to lead to the removal of thousands of accounts as it goes into place, though that could take some time. “We will begin enforcing this updated policy today; however, it will take time for our systems to fully ramp up and we’ll be gradually expanding coverage over the next several months,” its announcement read.
