The emergence and spread of the new respiratory Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) was declared a Public Health Emergency in the United States on Jan. 31, 2020. The outbreak, now a pandemic, has catalyzed significant activity by federal, state and local governments; the healthcare community; residents across the country; and people around the world. This is not the first emerging infectious disease event that the world will face, nor will it be the last.
When I say, “Hi, I’m from the Ohio Supercomputer Center,” the usual response is, “I didn’t know that there was an Ohio Supercomputer Center!” That’s a reasonable reaction, because most Ohioans aren’t involved in academic or commercial research, so their need for high performance computing (HPC) is understandably limited.
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.
With an incredible SC17 Conference in the rearview mirror, it’s time to sort through the business cards, promotional flyers, and follow-up emails and begin processing all of the information brought back from Denver. Find out everything the OSC team experienced and how it will pay off in the year to come.
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 (OSC) is an incredible resource for academic researchers across the state … so long as they know how to use it. In recent years, OSC has been working to coordinate more workshops throughout Ohio to help introduce our academic clients to HPC and to address whatever roadblocks they may have.
While many from the academic community are already doing amazing research through the Ohio Supercomputer Center, we also serve many commercial clients through the AweSim Program. But there are still those who could benefit from the program who haven't even been introduced to it yet. Chase Eyster's mission is to make that introduction. Find out how he does it and the reactions he receives.
By opening an account through the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) AweSim Modeling & Simulation industrial engagement program, designers and engineers could have access to one of the most powerful HPC platforms in the world. They would be able to sign in to their account, establish a secure connection with one of our three HPC systems, and use OSC resources to maximize their M&S efforts.
