The results presented in this manuscript were derived from the Corona-AI: phase I project for interactome-driven drug and food compound search for the potential anti-COVID-19 treatment. Working with Vodafone Foundation, the “Corona-AI” project used the freely available DreamLab app, which runs calculations using a smartphone computing power while its user sleeps. Tens to hundreds of thousands smartphones combined together are used to crunch scientific data at scale rivalling available supercomputers and by far exceeding the capabilities of the normal desktop PCs. The DreamLab App can be freely downloaded by anyone willing to donate the unused computational power of their smartphone to cancer and coronavirus research. The DreamLab App runs when a smartphone is being charged: it loads a small portion of scientific data from the cloud, performs the computations and sends the results back to the cloud for scientists to analyse them. This way anyone can become a citizen scientist and contribute to global research.
