I confess that when I joined the Ohio Technology Consortium as a communications intern during my sophomore year at The Ohio State University, I had only a surface-level understanding of what OH-TECH’s members do. I understood that OARnet supplies broadband to colleges and universities, I knew OhioLINK provides research articles to students, and I had a vague understanding of what supercomputers do and how they are used by Ohio Supercomputer Center clients.
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 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.
An account at OSC gives companies 24/7 access to HPC systems that power innovation with ultrafast parallel processing capabilities and a variety of open-source and commercial software solvers. But the AweSim industrial outreach initiative is more than just a gateway, it can also be an opportunity to engage with the engineering service providers (ESPs) that serve as AweSim collaborators and offer their considerable expertise in modeling and simulation (M&S) to AweSim.
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.
When I talk to innovative companies seeking a competitive advantage, I tell them there are a number of reasons for setting up shop in Ohio. I talk about access to a predictable business environment, our skilled workforce, and the scale-up opportunities that JobsOhio and our partners can facilitate for them.
In this guest post, Sultana Nahar, Ph.D., writes about how OSC resources helped her teach an atomic astrophysics workshop at Cairo University in Egypt recently. Nahar has been involved in the promotion of physics research and education in developing countries for many years and OSC has worked to help facilitate many of her workshops.
Members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center have been attending the SC Conference since its inception in 1988. Quite simply, it's the premier event for the high performance computing community. And it provides incredible benefits to attendees, three of which stand out among the rest.
The upcoming summer Olympics in Rio mark the 80th anniversary of Jesse Owens' historic performance in Berlin, Germany. Eighty years later, the Ohio Supercomputer Center – inspired by the Olympian’s speed – will name its newest (and fastest) supercomputer cluster after Owens, a decision that isn’t taken lightly by any stretch of the imagination. Take a look at our article recalling Owens' epic feat 80 years ago and how it still resonates in so many lives today.
