If you’re a member of the HPC community, I’m sure you already have your favorite websites for breaking news or job openings or training information from specific organizations with which you are familiar. But what you might not know is that there is one virtual organization that collects information from a vast array of HPC communities, reviews it, and offers it up to everyone. It’s called HPC University.
Ohio Supercomputer Center Posts
Working in business development for the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) gives me the amazing opportunity to travel around the Buckeye State and talk to people working in a variety of interesting professions.
If you hadn’t noticed, there has been a slew of articles recently recognizing Columbus, central Ohio, and the state in general as an emerging technology ecosystem. What’s behind this outpouring of tech respect, you may wonder? Well, it’s a combination of some attributes that have been around for quite some time (very few hurricanes and earthquakes, geographic centrality, low cost of living, etc.) and a handful that are more recently attributed to the region.
SME (a non-profit student and professional association for educating and advancing the manufacturing industry in North America) recently invited me to conduct a half-day workshop at its AeroDef Manufacturing conference/exposition March 26-29 at the Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California.
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.
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.
