As part of IBM's centennial celebration, 100 innovations that helped shape IBM's first 100 years have been selected as Icons of Progress, or key milestones. These are technologies, projects or inventions that IBM believes made a lasting impact on the world.
World Community Grid was chosen because it demonstrates how computers could be turned into powerful research tools helping address some of the world's most difficult health and societal problems.
IBM is featuring an Icon of Progress every day and World Community Grid will be featured on March 30, 2011.
