Lingying Zhao’s agricultural group at The Ohio State University is changing the way Ohio farmers are practicing their craft – and how they impact the environment around them. The group is participating in several grant programs from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that are making lasting change in the field of agriculture. In the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s most recent research report, we wrote about one of the incredible projects Zhao’s group is researching.

The Physics of Video Games

Until recently, Hourofcode.com didn’t have any coding activities with a physics focus. That is, until Chris Orban, Ph.D., assistant professor of Physics at The Ohio State University’s Marion Campus, created an hour of code activity on "The Physics of Video Games" and launched the STEMcoding project. These coding tutorials are being integrated in physics classrooms around the world. The purpose of Orban’s STEMcoding project is to make coding more accessible to high school students.

William Schuler, Ph.D., a linguistics professor at The Ohio State University, and his doctoral student, Lifeng Jin, are contributing to a project that could have major implications in disaster relief efforts. They are also proving a computer is capable of learning a language with no supervision. Find out how they're using OSC's resources in our latest blog post.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center has had much to celebrate this year. From co-celebrating a 30th anniversary with OARnet to launching Open OnDemand and unveiling the Dell/Intel Xeon Owens Cluster, 2017 has been a memorable year. So, when OSC staff members attend the SC17 conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver from Nov. 12-17, they’ll have plenty to share from the OSC exhibition booth with the 13,000 attendees, composed of scientists, researchers, engineers, and a who’s-who from the HPC international community.
