As scientific data sets become progressively larger, algorithms to process the data become more complex. Artificial Intelligence has emerged as a solution to efficiently analyze these massive data sets, and new computer processor types help speed up the work of AI algorithms.
According to scientists, a century of suppressing wildfires has created a dangerous stockpile of flammable vegetation on landscapes. This “fire fuel” has fed the megafires that put human life and property at risk and permanently destroy ecosystems.
Methane storage applications are a key bridging technology to carbon-free chemical fuels. A first-year grad student at UCSD has worked with an international team on a study of zeolite-templated carbon as a gas-storage material. Comet allowed faster completion of their experiments.
The AI Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment, or ICICLE, will focus on next-generation intelligent cyberinfrastructure that makes using AI as easy as plugging an appliance into an electrical outlet.
The NSF Awards $5M to the San Diego Supercomputer Center for its Prototype National Research Platform, a first-of-its-kind cyberinfrastructure ecosystem intended to help science drivers expedite science and enable transformative discoveries.
The Biden administration has launched the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Task Force, on which San Diego Supercomputer Center Director and Physics Professor Michael Norman will participate to help democratize access to resources and tools that fuel AI research and development.
The title of an Old West anthem and a Disney film, “Home on the Range” loosely describes the work of spatial ecologists. These field experts study the movements of animals within a specific geographic area—their “home range.”
Developing improved materials for things such as energy storage and drug discovery is of interest to researchers and society alike. Quantum mechanics is the basis for molecular and materials scientists who develop these useful, futuristic products.
Long-time Director Michael Norman is stepping down and SDSC’s Distributed High-Throughput Computing Lead and Physics Professor Frank Würthwein is stepping into the role until a new permanent director is named.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center and CERN team up and leverage an alliance with Strategic Blue, a UK-based Fintech company that helps organizations optimize procurement of cloud services.
