According to a 2021 World Health Organization report, the global COVID-19 pandemic caused an increase in tuberculosis (TB) deaths – 1.5 million in 2020 versus 1.4 million in 2019 – due to a lack of efficient diagnosis and treatment.
SDSC and OSG used Microsoft Azure Cloud Services to enable scientists to accomplish in a few days what would normally take them weeks, thus accelerating science and opening up new scientific pursuits.
UC San Diego has launched new master’s and doctoral degree programs at the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI), the university’s hub for all things data science.
On Saturday, Dec. 4, a total eclipse of the sun will occur at 07:33 (Universal Time) over Antarctica and parts of the South Pacific near the southern tip of Chile. The solar corona – visible to the naked eye only during a total eclipse – will be viewable for just over one minute.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center has a new director. Frank Würthwein, lead of SDSC’s Distributed High-Throughput Computing Group, executive director of the Open Science Grid, a physics professor and a founding faculty member of the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute at UC San Diego assumes the…
The Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis, the University of Oregon’s Network Startup Resource Center and MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have been awarded more than $11M by the NSF for two projects aimed at improving internet infrastructure security.
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.
UC San Diego has announced a joint appointment with Los Alamos National Laboratory with the appointment of Senior Scientist Rodman Linn to a three-year position with the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI). This is the first joint appointment program between Los Alamos and a UC campus.
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.
