It’s important to do anything we can to help in the fight against the novel coronavirus, and our extensive computing capabilities have the ability to help make a difference.

KidCheck secure children’s check-in is part of Temple University Voelz Lab and Washington University School of Medicine supercomputing projects researching COVID-19. The projects use distributed computing to simulate protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. The current focus is to develop therapies and vaccines for the novel coronavirus.
KidCheck is donating its computer horsepower to help run these protein simulations. Insights from the data will help scientists better understand the disease and opportunities to develop therapeutics. The project relies on the collective power of computers to perform the complex calculations required to simulate protein dynamics.
“KidCheck is pleased to participate in these projects to use any idle computer and server bandwidth to help understand COVID-19,” said Alex Smith, KidCheck CEO. “We have horsepower available on our non-production backup systems, which won’t affect customers, that can help leverage our extensive computing power by banding it with others.”
Smith continued, “It’s important to do anything we can to help in the fight against the novel coronavirus, and our extensive computing capabilities have the ability to help make a difference.”
