How do I see what my computer is doing for the project?

Open the Frontier Compute Engine Console (see below) and choose the Results tab. The results content reflects the type of computational task on which your computer is currently working. Because the Compute Against Alzheimer's Disease project (CAAD) supports multiple research projects, the type of content you see may change from time to time.
