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.
New visualizations of SARS-CoV-2 have allowed researchers to discover how the virus enters and infects healthy human cells. They found that glycan sugar molecules act as infection “gates” to our cell’s receptors.
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.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as GERD, impacts around 20 percent of U.S. citizens, according to the National Institutes of Health. If left untreated, GERD can lead to serious medical issues and sometimes esophageal cancer.
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.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, preeclampsia, or pregnancy-related hypertension, occurs in roughly one in 25 pregnancies in the United States. The causes are unknown and childbirth is the only remedy, which can sometimes lead to adverse perinatal outcomes
Researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo recently teamed with colleagues at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Tufts University to publish a special issue paper entitled Building a Glaciology Gateway to Unify a Community
