Scientific Contributions and Publications

Since 2008, our dDM scientists have published four books. Doing so, they presented the results of the research that was supported by the dDM project. In order to spread our ideas and new algorithms, we gave talks and published many papers for scientific conferences and journals additionally. Here, you'll find a list of publications which were supported by the dDM project. For scientific details please refer to this papers or take a look at the description of our research challenges  

Scientific Partners

Over the years, the number of our scientific partners has increased steadily. Right now, we are proud to support the research of:

  • Prof. Dr. Jörg Lässig at University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz
  • Dr. Daniel Voigt at Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
  • Dr. Tanja Falkowski at University of Göttingen
  • Dipl.Inf. Nico Schlitter at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  • Bodo Winter (M.A.) at University of California, Merced

Public Perception

In 2010, the popular German journal Handelsblatt has briefly reported about the dDM project. Besides SETI@home, Einstein@home and other well known BOINC projects, our DistributedDataMining project was listed as one of the most popular Distributed Computing projects.

Although the public opinion is important to us, we much more appreciate our user's feedback:

  • 'It seems to me that you are a project admin that is responsive and takes an interest in the care and feeding of its crunchers. Thanks, again, and keep up the good work.' (Camelot in May 2010)
  • 'It's not been said enough - thanks for being so attentive to problems that arise! You're a definitely a model admin.' (Maxwell [MM] in July 2010)
  • 'Keep up the good work you are doing. It's coming along nicely...' (NATE in July 2011)

Computational Power

During the last week, 165 dDM members spent 30,293 hours computational power on their 269 computers. In average, the dDM project takes advantage of about 9 TFLOPS and the data outcome of our scientific computing measures about 25 GB per day. The charts below show the daily granted credit over the last four years and the daily number of members which spent their computational power.
