[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Helping hospitals and winning a million dollars is now so easy you can do it in your sleep. Every night your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch sleeps soundly on its recharger (when you remember to plug it in that is). It is time to wake it up and put it to work:
* Keep your device busy at night
* Prize money $1,000,000
* Helping Hospitals become more efficient
The Evolution Prize is a crowdsourcing application that uses Genetic Programming to predict patient stays in hospital (Helping hospitals plan better and thus becoming more efficient).
"iPhones, iPads and iPod touches spend a remarkable amount of their live sitting idle after they have recharged. This creates a perfect match for crowdsourcing Apps like the Evolution Prize that can put that untapped potential to good use for a good cause." said Anthony Travers from ClockworkApps.
This is a unique application that taps into the unused potential of idle iOS devices. Each device creates its own solutions and then shares them with everyone else (via Kinvey) helping the search for the best solution.
* iOS 6.0 or later
* iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPod touch (3rd/4th/5th generation), and iPad
* 77.6 MB

The competition closes on Tuesday 2 April 2013. Press Pack containing digital screenshots, icons and associated material is available from our website.
