A Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford’s School of Medicine, Dr. Chi advises us on medical applications for Hadron Ai and the charitable and research opportunities at Stanford and elsewhere.

The Concept

1. Hadron and its clients need AI computations performed.

2. You have idle devices with untapped processing power.

3. You put your devices to work for Hadron.

4. Once complete, you receive Hadron coins for your efforts.

What’s Possible with Hadron’s AI?

These are just the tip of the iceberg based on Hadron’s current technology. In the future, Hadron looks to power even more applications with its AI.
