Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Partners with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to Build out bioRxiv. It will be designed to help scientists to share research faster. BioRxiv is a free online archive of draft biology papers and will now get funding from Chan Zuckerberg. It is now the fastest-growing biology preprint server, adding 800 papers each month to its current total of about 10,000 papers.

Mark Zuckerberg said on his Official Facebook Account,
If we’re going to cure all disease in our children’s lifetime, we need to speed up science. One thing that slows us down today is that it can take a year or longer to publish research in a scientific journal. It’s common for scientists to be working on a problem for a long time. Then when another paper finally publishes, they realize someone solved their problem or found a better approach a long time ago. It can be a huge waste of time, and if we can help eliminate it, scientific progress can move a lot faster.
That’s what bioRxiv does. BioRxiv is a free service that lets scientists share drafts or their results, or “preprints”, before they’re published. It’s quickly becoming the standard database for pre-publishing biological research. We’re proud to support their work and help build out their service to accelerate science.
Recently, Qualcomm and Facebook has collaborated to reduce the reliance on cloud-based data-processing system. This has been confirmed by Qualcomm last week. Now, it is working with the Facebook to equip devices with Machine Learning Capabilities.
