What is Distributed Hardware Evolution Project?

DHEP allows you to host an island running a population based metaheuristic stochastic optimisation 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.

DHEP is based at the University of Sussex.

Find out more at www.dhep.ga and see our fine grained statistics to check the progress of the current run, the state of all the islands, the circuit diagrams of the best solutions, various rankings for each island, and even trace genetic strains and genealogy within the whole grid.

DHE suspended
Hello everyone,

Unfortunately we are having to suspend DHE until we secure funding. A big thanks to all of you who crunched for our project, the BOINC team, and a special thanks to those who volunteered with us in many ways.

All the best,

Load Balancing
Hello everyone,

As announced in the forums recently we have expanded our server capacity. This allows us to load-balance you all across several physical and logical servers. Thus enabling more crunchers to be serviced and several benchmarks (goals) to be tackled simultaneously.

As many of you know you can find our island on the topology at https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php. Logical servers mean there are now multiple worlds/continents/archipelagos so you may alternatively find your island at: https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php?liveRunID=1 (or possibly https://dhep.ga/statstopology.php?liveRunID=2).

Happy Crunching!

Kind regards,

PS: Similarly you can see progress of each run at https://dhep.ga/statsgoal.php?liveRunID=1 and diversity analysis at https://dhep.ga/statsstrains.php?liveRunID=1.
PS2: A quick reminder just in case you missed the previous post: You need to be on app version 2.14 in order to be crunching with DHE now for two reasons: (a) load-balancing support and (b) expanded memory for larger benchmark support.
PS3: We are now tackling by far the largest benchmarks in DHE's history. ALU2 requires 293 gates to perform its' function and an extra 323 for conventional concurrent error detection. Congratulations all and let's see how much better we can do! πŸ‘πŸΎπŸŽ‰

Update your App!
Please ensure you are running the latest client (v2.14) as older ones will not be supported anymore.

In order to force an update simply abort all tasks.

Kind regards,

Volunteers wanted!
If you're into coding, math, scripting, hacking, design, or sys admin and would like to be part of DHE give us a shout!

There's plenty of exciting stuff to get on with!.

PS: Badges ARE coming..
PS2: pm me or write to email M.Garvie@sussex.ac.uk
