DEVELOPMENT REPORT - Using Personal Computers to Solve Humanitarian Problems
Broadcast date: Monday, June 30, 2008
发展报道-利用个人电脑解决慈善难题
广播日期:2008年6月30日 星期一

This is the VOA Special English Development Report.
这是美国之音特别英语<发展报道>。

A project called the World Community Grid has found a way for computers connected to the Internet to help solve humanitarian problems. The World Community Grid is making technology available to public and non-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research.
一项称作全球联众网(the World Community Grid)的计划找到了一种将连接在国际互联网上的电脑用来帮助解决慈善问题的方法。全球联众网提供技术支持使公众和非营利组织用于慈善方面的研究。

Scientists at the University of Washington, for example, are using the technology to study ways to improve the nutritional value of rice. Another research project supported by the World Community Grid is studying mathematical ways to design drugs to treat the disease AIDS.Other projects are studying cancer. And still others are studying climate change in Africa.
例如,科学家在华盛顿大学使用这一技术研究改善稻米营养价值的方法。由全球联众网支持的另一个研究项目是用数学方法设计药物用于治疗爱滋病,其它是一些对癌症的研究项目,另有一些是研究非洲的气候变化。

The success of the World Community Grid depends upon individuals collectively donating their extra computer power. This is based on the idea that most computers are inactive most of the time.During these times they are not used, they can help solve complex scientific or engineering problems.
全球联众网的成功取决于每个人都提供他们额外的电脑能力。这是基于一种想法即大多数电脑大部分时间不是很忙,此时它们可以帮助解决复杂的科学或工程问题。

The IBM corporation started the World Community Grid more than two years ago. The company continues to provide advice and support to the project.Stanley Litow heads community relations for IBM.He says anyone in the world with a computer connected to the Internet can join the project.
早在两年前,IBM公司就启动了全球联众网,公司一直提供建议和支持这一计划。Stanley litow 负责社团与IBM的联系,他说世界上任何人只要有一台电脑连接到国际互联网就可以参加这一计划。

Volunteers download a program from the World Community Grid Web site.Every so often, the program uploads results or downloads more information to be processed. Individuals can also find out how much work their computer power has done on the Web site.
志愿者从全球联众网站下载一个程序,程序会偶尔上传结果或下载更多数据用于进行处理。个人还可以在网站上了解自己的计算机做了多少工作。

Currently, about one million personal computers in one hundred countries are involved in the World Community Grid. Mister Litow hopes that another million computers will join the project. Then, he says, the World Community Grid will become the world's largest super computer able to do many projects a year.
当前约有一百个国家的一百万台个人电脑参与了全球联众网。litow先生希望更多的电脑参与这项计划。他说,到那时全球联众网将成为世界上最大的超级计算机,每年能做很多项目。

Any researcher can sign up to use the grid's super computing power.However, all findings from the studies must be made public.Mister Litow says not only is the technology free.But he says it will also lead to more knowledge and valuable scientific discoveries.
任何研究人员可以签约使用这一网络的超大计算能力。当然全部的研究成果必须公开。litow先生说这项技术不但免费,也将产生更多知识和重要的科学发现。
