The ATS SETI team participating in this project already has 513 members, 206 of whom have active credit conducting processing in this initiative. This has been around a long time already.

I might also suggest simply doing a search on this forum for SETI-related threads -of which there are many, specifically related to this Berkeley/Boinc/SETI project.
BTW: Yes, even if it leads to nothing or is not the proper technology to use whatsoever, etc., it is still a worthwhile effort, since the alternative so far is to do nothing but sit and wait - which has not produced very exciting results so far either...
Participating in this costs the user nothing, and is certainly better than doing nothing. If nothing else, it increases awareness -and generates a bit more interest in subject matter, perhaps motivating others to also seek the 'truth'.
Good luck - and keep looking up!

I also crunched many hours of data for SETI back in the early 2000s. Then I sent an anecdote about the Fomalhaut system (hence my username) and was made to feel as if I should be in a straightjacket. TBH - no reply would have been preferred to what I received. This was before exoplanets had been discovered in the system. This burnt me on SETI and I deleted all data crunching programs from my computer. Even now that I'm older and wiser, I have two ideas about SETI - either they are the most one-track minded research agency on the planet or they are a disinfo op. I'm honestly not sure which is true.

Sorry, I can't help out an institution whose senior astronomer and poster boy, aka Seth Szostak, is arrogant enough to dismiss the UFO topic based on the assumption that if aliens were already here he'd know about it. Yeah, really!
A computer-driven algorithm was able to accurately foresee whether or not a person would develop Alzheimer’s disease up to two years before he or she displays symptoms, according to a new study from McGill University.
It was correct in its predictions 84% of the time. Researchers are excited for the AI’s potential to help choose patients for clinical trials and drugs ahead of the disease’s onset that could delay its debilitating effects.

So back to SETI, it has amassed an enormous amount of data that A.I. could look at. Who know, a civilization more advanced than ours could be masking any signals in random data that we just can't detect but A.I. can.

There were UFO reports where people said they saw black triangles sending out a beam of red/purple light up into the sky (purple might have been red + blue of the sky).
