Paper Abstract

Since it’s public release in 1999, the capabilities of SETI@home have grown rapidly. The continuation of Moore's law has led to personal computers one thousand times faster than those available in 1999, with graphics processing units that can provide processing speeds only seen on supercomputers in the last century. The capabilities of the SETI@home software have increased to better utilize the available processing power. Increases in radio astronomy instrumentation technologies have also led to improvements in the potential data sources for SETI@home. I will describe the evolution of SETI@home, and how it will change in the future to better match the available technologies, in the data sources, the data processing techniques, and the candidate identification process.
