Cancer researchers need phones to process data
A cancer research team hopes to build a network of more than 100,000 UK smartphones to help process data while their owners sleep.
Phone owners can get involved by downloading an app and donating some of their wi-fi or data plan.
The handsets will need to be switched on and charged for six hours per night.
The aim is that they will form a huge network that processes data about different drug combination, using an algorithm built by the team.
It would take over 100 years for a single desktop computer to process the amount of data involved, the researchers said.
