IBM needs your help with Ebola research

 If you've ever wondered how you can help fight Ebola, there is a way you can do it from home by simply using your computer, phone, or tablet.

IBM has teamed up with Scripps research for a project called World Community Grid.

The Grid uses the power of thousands of small computers to work as a  super computer to help scientists with research.

Scripps says your help allows researchers to do in months what could take years.

Everyone can join the fight against Ebola by donating processing time on their personal computer.

It requires free downloadable software that works on Windows, Mac computers, and Android mobile devices.
