MLC@Home and CORAL
Exciting news!

MLC@Home is now a project of the The Cognition, Robotics, and Learning (CORAL) lab at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

This brings many benefits, not the least of which is lab space to run equipment, new ideas for research to conduct, and a place to collaborate with other researchers who may not be members of the BOINC community. Most importantly, being backed by a university research lab provides some assurance to you, our volunteers, that this project has both academic merit and a purpose beyond a single researcher and their goals. Over the next few days I'll be updating our website to reflect the new affiliation.

As always, please see our main website, https://www.mlcathome.org for details on the current research, or join us by attaching your BOINC client to this URL: https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/

New testing WUs released
As the first round of 50,000 networks finishes training (what I'm referring to as "dataset 1"), I've released a few new test WUs for the next round ("dataset 2"). If these go well, I'll release the next 50,000 networks to train, that should keep keep the WUs flowing a bit more consistently.

Windows support lands, and updates on dataset and progress
Today MLC@Home is proud to announce Windows 64-bit support[!
Windows support joins the existing Linux 64-bit bit support already available.

After 1 week, MLC@Home contributors have finished over 100,000 workunits, and trained over 14,000 neural networks. That's tremendous, thank you all for your support; and there's a lot more just on the horizon, so keep crunching!

Stats are now exported; requires consent
The project is now exporting stats for stat aggregator sites. I've also enabled stat export consent which defaults to "no". If you would like your stats exported, please check the "Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?" option under "Project->Preferences".

Thanks again for your support!

Please report any further issues in the forum.

Welcome to MLC@Home, a new BOINC Project

BOINC URL to join: https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/

For an introduction, please see https://www.mlcathome.org/ . I will continue to update that page over the next few days with more information. Please let me know of any issues you have with either the web site or the client. And thank you for your interest.

Here are a few quick bits of information:

Who are we?

We, at the moment, is just me. I'm John Clemens, a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). You can view my Google Scholar profile here: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=kIKFod8AAAAJ&hl=en . You can view my outdated homepage here http://www.deater.net/john. I'm studying ways to extract information from neural networks so we can better understand their uses and limitations. I aim to expand the list of researchers working on this project going forward.

When will Windows be ready

I'm working on it. It shouldn't be more than a week or so before a beta windows client is ready. But I'm a linux developer, so if someone would like to help, please let me know. I'll keep everyone informed of progress.

What happens to the data?
I intend to make all data available for download on the main website. Science dies in darkness.

Thanks again for your interest, now lets get crunching!
