This Week in MLC@Home
Notes for Oct 19 2020
A weekly summary of news and notes for MLC@Home

Summary
A quick summary this week, as it was a quiet week on the forums and busy week outside of the project. Hey, sometimes life happens. See below for GPU support updates, Paper updates, Dataset 4, and OSX support.

News:
We've completed the first Dataset 3 milestone! Well done all our volunteers! The next steps are to package it up, and write up a brief analysis/paper to submit to arXiv and release the dataset to the public! Milestone 2 (1000x100) work underway! We spent some time last week gaining access to both Windows and Linux machines with CUDA, so hoepfully GPU clients should be released to testing this week. We're having some issues packaging the ROCm version but will try to iron those out into testing as well. We also secured access on an OSX machine, and have run the client on OSX! However, packaging on OSX faces another set of similar challenges to ROCM packaging up the libraries with the Dataset 4 preparations continues. We have the data, just need some backend updates to updates to handle the new type or networks (classification vs. regression). No changes to Dataset 1+2 yet, there are some updated Partiy and EightBit WUs in testing, but we have not processed those results yet to make certain they're set for full release.

2020-10-15: RakeSearch, Joint search of ODLS9 with Gerasim project

Dear participants!

A new search started in the project on September 27 - "Joint search of ODLS9 with Gerasim project". Earlier we performed a full search over the space of row-permutational diagonal Latin squares of order 9, but in this search (that we perform with Gerasim@Home project) we try to find all orthogonal diagonal Latin squares of order 9! At the first glance, the goal is unreachable, but the new search uses an heuristics that allowed to reduce the amount of computations.

In this thread we will post news about the new search.

This Week in MLC@Home
Notes for Oct 12 2020
A weekly summary of news and notes for MLC@Home

Summary
Happy 100 days, MLC@Home! On October 8th, MLC@Home passed 100 days old as a project, and early adopter badges were added to everyone with credit at that point. Thanks again for all your support.

Beyond that, we transitioned to our new server, which is quite a step up from the old one, and puts us in good shape for Dataset 3+4 validation and beyond. Read on for more information.

News:
Dataset 3 WUs processing going fantastically, but a few stragglers remain before we hit the first milestone (100x100). New WUs have been released towards the next milestone (100x1000). We'll continue to trickle them out about 500 at a time, and update the scoreboard to keep track. We studied the the runtimes of dataset 3 WUs, and decided to increase the credit awarded for all new WUs. There are still old WUs in the pipeline that have the old credit value, and will take a while for those time finish, but new ones created will have more credit. We're testing a new, longer set of Dataset1+2 WUs in the mldstest application, with a longer runtime and a corresponding change in credit awarded. Datasets 1+2 continue also to make progress in parallel with Dataset 3. New server up and running. Thanks for your patience. There may need to be another quick downtime (15 minutes) to swap a disk around insice the machine, but otherwise its been running fine since Saturday afternoon. Old credit should be counted towards badges now! This doesn't effect anyone here, but the FLOPS estimate for dataset 3 is grossly underspecified (which is why the "GFLOPS" estimate below is so much lower than usual). We'll fix that in future WUs. It doesn't matter for users, but it helps convince other researchers if I can quote a (more) accurate GFLOPS estimate.. Next up (in vague priority order): GPU support, Dataset 4, Dataset Release Paper writing, OSX support.

2020-10-09: MLC@Home, Scheduled Server Maintenance

MLC@Home will be going down at midnight (Easter US timezone) tonight, Oct 8th (a little over 4 hours from now), to migrate to a new, more powerful server.

The outage is scheduled for all day Oct 9th, during which time the web site and boinc work schedulers will be offline. We expect to be back up and running (on a much more powerful server!) by the morning of Oct 10th (hopefully sooner!). We'll post updates to twitter with progress in case something doesn't go according to plan: https://twitter.com/MLCHome2 .

Thanks again for your support, and we'll be back shortly!

2020-10-09: BOINC@TACC, BOINC@TACC back in production

Dear Volunteers and Researchers,

We are happy to announce that BOINC@TACC is back into production. There are still few action-items that are pending (such as the cross-project id related issue during export and downloading cross-project certificate) and we are working through them one by one. Also, we would like to urge you to remove and re-attach the project from BOINC manager since the keys have been changed.

Thanks for your patience and support!
BOINC@TACC Team

2020-10-09: GPUGRID, Project restarted

Dears, thanks for your patience.

I updated the acemd3 apps.

Also, I verified that there were very few results by apps from the old CUDA version, so I won't be re-deploying them. In other words, apps now require CUDA 10 (Linux) and CUDA 10.1 (Windows). In terms of drivers versions:

CUDA 10.1 (10.1.105) >= 418.39 for Windows
CUDA 10.0 (10.0.130) >= 410.48 for Linux

https://docs.nvidia.com/deploy/cuda-compatibility/index.html

2020-10-08: World Community Grid, October Update: Microbiome Immunity Project

The researchers are awaiting news about a paper they submitted to a scientific journal, and working on a potential new type of work unit.

2020-10-07: BOINC, Web site makeover

We made the BOINC web site smaller and simpler. Material for scientists and developers was moved down a level. Volunteers are directed to Science United in order to encourage new projects.

2020-10-07: GPUGRID, Suspending project

Until we update the app. Sorry.

2020-10-06: World Community Grid, October Update: Africa Rainfall Project

The research team is creating rainfall models based on data received from World Community Grid.

2020-10-06: Asteroids@home, New models reconstructed from ATLAS photometry

Our new paper describing asteroid models reconstructed from ATLAS photometry has been accepted for publication in Astronomy and Astrophysics. The paper is available at arXiv. Thank you for your contribution!

This Week in MLC@Home
Notes for Oct 5 2020
A weekly summary of news and notes for MLC@Home

Summary
This week MLC@Home turns 100 days old! Since the beginning, we've released 3 datasets worth of WUs, released many application updates, rolled out support for 3 new architectures on Linux, and rolled out Windows support. But we're just getting started.

It's been a busy week: Dataset 3 is approaching its first milestone of 100 networks for 100 samples (100x100), and its only been ~15 days. Badges went live on the site. We benchmarked Dataset 3 WUs on a GPU (40% speedup on AMD ROCm). We even some potential movement on OSX support. Read on to find out more.

But first, an apology: we had a server glitch today where the work scheduler was unavailable for several hours. We've corrected the problem and taken steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Next, MLC@Home was happy to roll out badges this week. There are now badges for top RAC percentage, and milestone badges for hitting credit milestones per app. Currently, only new credit (as of Oct 1) is counted towards milestones, but by the end of this week we should be able to get all previous credit counted towards them as well. So if you don't have a badge yet, please be patient, its coming. We're also offering a special Early Adopter badge to anyone who has credit by our 100th day, October 8th. Consider it a small token of thanks for supporting our new project.

News:
Dataset 3 WUs processing going fantastically, much faster than anticipated. We're almost at the first milestone (100x100), and have released more WUs towards the next milestone (100x1000). Once we reach 100x100 (see chart on home page for updates, we'll do some preliminary analysis and release that Dataset to the public. Datasets 1+2 continue also to make progress in parallel with Dataset 3, but its slow going for now. We may spend some cycles seeing if we can speed up those remaining WUs. We'll do an official release of a preliminary Dataset (1+2) once we have at least 1000 examples of each machine type. New server arrived at the university last week, it'll be in our hands tomorrow. Please be on the lookout for an announcement of scheduled maintenance downtime later this week or weekend as we transition to a more powerful and more permanent server. More information about badges available here: https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/forum_thread.php?id=88 . We'll use the downtime to make sure old credit gets counted towards badges. GPU support: GPUs were a net loss for Dataset 1+2 WUs, but we recently hacked the client to work with AMD ROCm and tested Dataset 3 WUs and achieved a 40% speedup on a VEGA56. We would expect a similar speedup on CUDA hardware as well, which means we're moving GPU support up in the priority. Discussion here: https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/forum_thread.php?id=89 Dataset 4 WUs (MNIST/TorjAI-based) remain in development. We're evaluating using Darling as a way to finally support OSX. Nothing to report yet.

2020-10-04: iThena, New Badges: iThena CNode and iThena PERF - credits points requirements

Referring to the news item I would like to start a discussion on the credits points requirements for certain badge.

The topic on the forum announcing badge: https://root.ithena.net/usr/forum_thread.php?id=83

Preliminary proposal concerning the category "total credit" for individual applications:

======================================
======================================
iThena CNode Badge:

Badge TotalC 2Power
==============================
Bronze 8192 13
Silver 16384 14
Gold 32768 15
Amethyst 65536 16
Ruby 131072 17
Turquoise 262144 18
Jade 524288 19
Sapphire 1048576 20
Emerald 2097152 21
Diamond 4194304 22


======================================
======================================
iThena PERF Badge:

Badge TotalC 2Power
======================================
Bronze 32768 15
Silver 65536 16
Gold 131072 17
Amethyst 262144 18
Ruby 524288 19

Jade 2097152 21
Sapphire 4194304 22
Emerald 8388608 23
Diamond 16777216 24

The credits thresholds may seem quite high.

However, this is only my suggestion.

These applications will also have long support.

PS. At the moment I have small problems with storage, but the PERF application will also be normally available.

2020-10-02: MLC@Home, Badges!

MLC@Home is happy to announce that badges are now available!

We're scientists, not artists; but why not have some fun:

There are three types of badges volunteers can earn:

1) RAC Badges: badges for having a (user/team) with a high RAC for the project. These are gold/silver/bronze badges for top 1%, 5%, and 25% RAC.

2) Milestone Badges: Starting today (October 1st 2020), we've enabled sub-project credit reporting. While we only have one sub-project at the moment (MLDS), we plan to have more in the future. With this, we're instituting "Milestone badges" you can earn for contributing a certain number of credits per sub-project. These badges are available at milestones, the first being 10K credits. While all users retain their overall credit (I repeat no credit is lost), these badges will only be awarded for work done after today, when the server started keeping track of per-app credit. Thresholds for milestone badges are (currently) 10K (onyx), 500K (amethyst), 1M (sapphire), 500M (ruby), and 1B (emerald) credits.

3) Special Badges: These are special, one-off badges for special events. The first one is a reward for those who have supported our little project so far. We're going to grant an "Early Adopter" badge for anyone who has any type of credit on this project during its first 100 days. This project went live the night of June 30th, 2020, so that leaves just 1 week (October 8th!) to earn some credit and qualify for the badge.

We hope that these badges help keep things fun, and motivate all of you to keep supporting our work. We're so close to not only writing our first papers based on these results, but also releasing these datasets so others (maybe even you) can build our collective effort. There is no way we could do this without you.

Thank you!

2020-09-30: Minecraft@Home, We have found the SEED of Minecraft's title-screen background PANORAMA!

Everyone should be familiar with this world. It's the one that always appeared on Minecraft's main-menu (title-screen), blurred and slowly rotating.
It first appeared in 2011 for Minecraft Beta 1.8 and remained for many years, it was only recently replaced in 1.13 each subsequent version.



The seed was found on 18th of July 2020 at around 5:45 AM UTC.

Version: Beta 1.7.3
Coordinates: X=61.48~, Y=75, Z=-68.73~
Seed: 2151901553968352745 OR 8091867987493326313 (both work)



Why two seeds? There are actually 2^16 (=65536) seeds that will all generate the same world. Older versions of Minecraft used only 48 of the bits of the seed. Here's the formula for getting all of them, as explained by Earthcomputer:
25357015387625 + 2^48k, 0

2020-09-29: QuChemPedIA@home, Scientific publication and news

Dear Crunchers.

Thank you very much for your help.

I am pleased to announce the publication of our latest open access article describing EvoMol, our opensource molecule generator.

EvoMol: a flexible and interpretable evolutionary algorithm for unbiased de novo molecular generation
The objective of this work is to design a molecular generator capable of exploring known as well as unfamiliar areas of the chemical space.
Our method must be flexible to adapt to very different problems. Therefore, it has to be able to work with or without the influence of prior data and knowledge. Moreover, regardless of the success, it should be as interpretable as possible to allow for diagnosis and improvement.
We propose here a new open source generation method using an evolutionary algorithm to sequentially build molecular graphs. It is independent of starting data and can generate totally unseen compounds. To be able to search a large part of the chemical space, we define an original set of 7 generic mutations close to the atomic level.
Our method achieves excellent performances and even records on the QED, penalised logP, SAscore, CLscore as well as the set of goal-directed functions defined in GuacaMol. To demonstrate its flexibility, we tackle a very different objective issued from the organic molecular materials domain. We show that EvoMol can generate sets of optimised molecules having high energy HOMO or low energy LUMO, starting only from methane. We can also set constraints on a synthesizability score and structural features. Finally, the interpretability of EvoMol allows for the visualisation of its exploration process as a chemically relevant tree.

You can find for free the full article :
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/344326849_EvoMol_a_flexible_and_interpretable_evolutionary_algorithm_for_unbiased_de_novo_molecular_generation
or here :
https://jcheminf.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13321-020-00458-z

You can help us a little bit more by visiting these pages to give us visibility and you can also share on your teams forums and/or social websites like tweeter.(@b_damota)

We have been working for some time now on the following article. It will deal in particular with the calculations you have made since the beginning of the project. The result will be an open access dataset. While we are writing this article we are also working on the next parts. Without divulging, I can only tell you that your calculations will help us to propose a unique tool that is particularly useful for chemists. We will of course keep you informed! Currently, two campaigns are in progress and do not concern the work mentioned above. The "nwchem long" units and the new "nwchem" with tasks with prefix "CL9" will also bring new results for articles probably end of 2021 or 2022.

Kindly

This Week in MLC@Home
Notes for Sep 28 2020
A weekly summary of news and notes for MLC@Home

Summary
Wow, what a week. It's been 7 days since we released Dataset 3 WUs, and YOU, our volunteers have already crunched 48 of the workunits towards our first milestone (100 networks for each of the 100 automata). Client v9.61 appears to be working well, Dataset 1+2 WUs continue working in the background. Dataset 3 WUs were coming in so fast, we had optimize the validation process because server was getting overwhelmed!

At this rate, we're going to be ready for the first release of Dataset 3 (milestone 1) before Daatset 1+2 complete. That's a good result. We'll also release more Dataset 3 WUs soon, This also bodes well for Dataset 4.

Preparations for Dataset 4 (MNIST and TrojAI) are underway. Paper writing still underway, it is unlikely we'll make the deadline we were targeting for the end of this month, because we feel including Dataset 3 would be an even more compelling result.

In other good news, the new server has shipped from the vendor, and should be arriving at the university tomorrow! Meaning sometime in the next few weeks there will be some downtime while we transition to a new server with twice the ram, twice the speed, 3 times the number of cores, and 8 times the storage.

News:
Dataset 3 WUs processing going fantastically, uch faster than anticipated. We'll do an official release of a preliminary Dataset (1+2) once we have at least 1000 examples of each machine type, and we're getting closer! Those WUs continue working in parallel with Dataset 3. New server should arrive this week. Badges should be rolling out this week too. Training/eval data for Dataset 4 has been created, and work continues on updating the client and validation process to handle the image-based dataset

2020-09-27: RakeSearch, Results of SAT-CMS

As a result of the SAT-CMS experiment, 29 pairs of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares (ODLS) of order 10 were found. 2 cell mapping schemas (CMS) were used for this purpose. 18 found pairs are based on the first CMS, the remaining 11 pairs are based on the second one. CMS is in fact a relation between 2 Latin square from an orthogonal pair: for each element of the first square it shows where this element should be placed in the second square. Therefore, one can effectively construct the second square from a pair given the first square. The computing application was based on the CDCL algorithm aimed at solving the Boolean satisfiability problem (SAT). For each studied CMS, we first reduced a problem of finding pairs of ODLS of order 10 (that match the CMS) to SAT. Then, the obtained SAT problem was splitted into subproblems which in turn formed workunits. Finally, from found satisfying assignments (solutions of the SAT problems) we constructed the corresponding pairs of ODLS. All the found pairs are listed here. We are very grateful to all the crunchers who took part in the experiment!
