SDSC and the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) successfully completed a computational experiment as part of a multi-institution collaboration that marshalled all globally available for sale GPUs (graphics processing units) across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Google.
The University of California San Diego has been named the nation’s sixth best public university, according to U.S. News and World Report’s Best Global Universities.
MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) at SDSC have developed a new machine learning system to identify "serial hijackers" of internet IP addresses.
Scientists have gained a new understanding of how ultra-resilient tardigrades, or “water bears,” are protected in extreme conditions. The researchers discovered that a protein named Dsup binds and forms a protective cloud against extreme survival threats such as radiation damage.
Studying natural defenses in maize, a staple of diets around the world, UC San Diego biologists describe how they combined an array of scientific approaches to clearly define six genes that encode enzymes responsible for the production of key maize antibiotics known to control disease resistance.
Researchers used SDSC's Comet supercomputer to better understand the wake effects of large floating wind farm arrays, which have become more prevalent in recent years.
The NSF has awarded SDSC and its partners a three-year, $5.9 million grant to host the EarthCube Office as part of the ongoing NSF-funded EarthCube program.
Researchers at SDSC, LANL, and UNC Chapel Hill have developed a machine learning approach called transfer learning that lets them model novel materials by learning from data collected about millions of other compounds.
The University of California San Diego has been ranked 7th among public U.S. universities by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR).
