HTC to harness the power of the One for medical research with “Power To Give” Android app

HTC to harness the power of the One for medical research with “Power To Give” Android app

HTC’ kicked off Mobile World Congress on a much different note this year. Yes, there are a few new devices in HTC’s lineup, but the company is also looking to harness the power of its phones to help medical research. HTC has teamed up with UC Berkeley’s Dr. David Anderson (the creator of SETI@home) to develop the “Power To Give” Android app which will run in the background while the device is plugged in and connected to WiFi. HTC estimates that 1 million HTC Ones running the Android app can churn through as many complex mathematical calculations as one-petaflop supercomputer, giving medial researches access to a huge amount of processing power.

HTC’s Power to Give app will make its debut on the company’s One and Butterfly series of phones, but the company plans to broaden the scope within the next six month and give all android-powered devices the opportunity to contribute to the project.
