Tonight!


Gameification and User Experience

Over the years, BOINC has manifested something of a social network combined with a competitive circuit. This process is part of what is called gameification. Tonight we discuss BOINC's use of the concept along with the user experience it has created. If there's time we'll also discuss other aspects of the BOINC UX -- the good and the bad.

And remember! we're looking for help developing the show. Definitely definitely definitely reach out if you can already or want to learn how to:

  • Host a segment
  • Graphic design
  • Music
  • Production
  • Talk about science
  • Talk about BOINC
  • Tell a story
  • Get involved with the BOINC community
  • Organize
  • Whatever you think we should do

Otherwise, enjoy the show and see you soon on the BOINC Network discord!



What is BOINC?

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open-source grid computing infrastructure which provides open access to a global volunteer-based distributed computing network. To date, BOINC has been the driving force behind numerous computationally intensive research programs, such as pulsar identification, the creation of patient specific cancer treatments, the simulation of candidate molecules for next-generation solar panels, along with many others. While BOINC has been used primarily for science and mathematics, it can host data from any open or commercial field so long as the data can be formatted for BOINC’s processes. Examples of projects include tasks on engineering, cryptography, rendering, weather and climate prediction, as well as social, market, and resource analytics. Enigma@home, for example, worked to break remaining WWII messages encrypted by an Enigma machine.
