项目名称:Distributed Hardware Evolution Project (DHEP)
项目主办:萨塞克斯大学(University of Sussex)
DHEP allows you to host an island running a Genetic Algorithm in a coevolutionary setting synthesising future super-reliable electronics such as those used in autonomous vehicles, power stations, medical equipment, aerospace. These are of increasingly paramount importance as more and more human lives rely on well functioning hardware.
Observation of population dynamics will also help us understand Evolution, not only to harness it to reach 'better than human' designs, but also to learn how migration rates, genetic diversity and the inner mechanisms of genetic recombination have concerted to reach the biodiversity and wonder of living organisms today.
DHEP is based at the University of Sussex.

2018-07-26: Distr. Hardware Evolution, DHEP@boinc is Officially Live in Production State

We are happy to announce we are live and open to crunchers.

If you are new please read the following before starting: as DHEP works slightly differently to other BOINC projects but we hope you find it rewarding scientifically and in other ways.

2018-07-26: DHEP@BOINC,项目正式启动
如果你是首次接触我们,请在开始计算前看看这里: ,因为DHEP的工作方式与其他BOINC项目有些不同,但你会发现这些不同确实是必要的。

o DHE runs a Genetic Algorithm on your computer. These run for a non-defined time until a good solution is found. Hence "progress" within a workunit is meaningless and in fact workunits are dummies and do not represent actual work done.
o The DHE BOINC app will connect to our servers every 15 minutes and upload their progress. You can check how much you have made today (and yesterday) at: You can check how many of your cores are actively crunching by checking how many times your username (with spaces as _) appears at:
o Credit is awarded by a Validated Trickle system and is not awarded on workunit completion, because as mentioned above workunits are dummies. Hence you will receive credit by how much work is done within a workunit.
o Credit is awarded proportional to how much is contributed scientifically. This is roughly proportional to Ghz core/hours. So a core twice as fast will receive roughly twice the credit. Credit is awarded hourly.
o Restarting your BOINC client will show workunits resuming at 0%. This is normal and no work has been lost because you have already been awarded credit for all previous work done within the workunit. Remember the DHE BOINC app connects to our servers every 15 minutes to upload its progress. There is little value in having a percentage completion figure for a task with a non-defined processing time.
o All that said, workunits will occasionally end. This is when the goal at is changed which is roughly every two to four weeks.
o Workunits can be aborted at any time without any loss of progress or credit. However a Genetic Algorithm is more efficient when islands are connected continuously.
o Badges will be awarded and there are a variety of stats on which they will be based such as the number of times the Best of all Islands was arrived at on your island (aka 'Who's got the Knack'): all stats visible here:
o You can also view live progress of the current run at and live genetic strains analysis at, and a list of GPL licenced results at including an online circuit simulator to try them out.
o Any further questions may be answered at and will be more than happy to help if not.

·得分与计算结果的贡献程度成比例。大致与Ghz 核心/小时成比例。所以核心频率快两倍,则得分就能高出差不多两倍。得分按小时授予。
·你还可以在这里看到整个任务的实时进度,在这里看到遗传类群(genetic strains)分析,还有在这里可以查看基于GPL许可证发布的计算结果和用以测试的 circuit simulator。

之前一直是 @Youth 建立的新团队,现在新的项目没有tc的话都是自己建了。

DHEP Badge Design Competition!
Badges will be awarded to those making exceptional contributions to our project.

Calling all talented designers to design the badges that will be handed out at DHE! The winner will be announced here, have a special contribution badge (of their own design!), and be acknowledged here:

Badges must be attractive, eye-catching, and represent in some way the project and activity being rewarded. There will be badges for participating in alpha & beta periods, for credit levels, going above and beyond to help the project in special ways, for islands originating certain numbers of 'best of all island' solutions, and many more...

All designs welcome at until August 20th!

PS: For ideas from other projects' badges: ... dca4ba0ed600daebb6b and ... 33f8a6716db0501dec6

BONC客户端有通知升级什么APP(JAVA???),好像说正确的APP版 ...

2018-07-29: Distr. Hardware Evolution, BOINC Platform Issue

There has been an issue with the BOINC Manager spawning the 32-bit client on 64-bit boxes.

Perhaps someone will be able to explain why there is wisdom behind this. And someone has. Apparently "Boinc will try both 32 and 64 bit versions on a 64 bit host unless the tag is set in cc_config.xml, it does this to find which is fastest."

The 32-bit client is A LOT slower and will explain why anyone might have been receiving a lower credit rate recently.

A quick check to see whether BOINC is running the correct app version is to look at your Task Manager. There should be no java.exe *32 processes:

(In this case BOINC is running one task with the 64-bit app and two with the 32-bit app)

You can also check the app version on any results you're crunching of course.

A quick check of the database revealed about a third of all Windows tasks being crunched are being done so with the 32-bit app which seems way too high in my mind.

We have found the solution to this but have temporarily deprecated the 32-bit app until we've implemented it.

Aborting your tasks and updating the project should resolve the issue. If not a full reset or remove/add.

PS: If you'd like to continue crunching with a 32-bit box in the time being you can also use the standalone client:

2018-07-29: Distr. Hardware Evolution,BOINC平台计算程序问题
Boinc在64位系统中运行时,除非事先在cc_config.xml中设置过tag,否则会同时尝试调用32位和64位的计算程序,boinc 通过这种操作来测试哪种计算程序更快。(???)

查看任务管理器---》进程 ,看里面有没有名为java.exe *32的进程。
