In computing, time-sharing is the sharing of a computing resource among many users at the same time by means of multiprogramming and multi-tasking.

Its emergence as the prominent model of computing in the 1970s represented a major technological shift in the history of computing. By allowing many users to interact concurrently with a single computer, time-sharing dramatically lowered the cost of providing computing capability, made it possible for individuals and organizations to use a computer without owning one, and promoted the interactive use of computers and the development of new interactive applications.

Our computer club has been sharing processors of computers to solve world problems such as cancer, aids, etc. using the World Community Grid software.

Scientists need your help

They’re searching for answers to the world’s biggest problems, but it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why many use computer simulations to point them in the right direction.

Your device makes a difference

As a World Community Grid volunteer, your device does research calculations when it has spare power. With your help, scientists can identify the most important results to study in the lab, bringing them one step closer to discoveries that save lives and address global problems.
