Statewide Users Group spring conference showcases variety of research, OSC resources

COLUMBUS, Ohio (April 6, 2018)  The demand for high performance computing in Ohio is relentless, and it does not discriminate by field.  At Thursday’s Ohio Supercomputer Center Statewide Users Group (SUG) spring conference, OSC clients in fields spanning everything from astrophysics to linguistics gathered to share research highlights and hear updates about the center’s direction and role in supporting

Ohio State University linguistics team using Ohio Supercomputer Center to translate lesser-known languages

The latest Ohio Supercomputer Center researcher profile takes a look at William Schuler, Ph.D., a linguistics professor at The Ohio State University. Schuler is part of a project called Low Resource Languages for Emergent Incidents (LORELEI), an initiative through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The LORELEI program’s goal is to develop technology for languages about which translators and linguists know nothing. 

Ohio supercomputing experts to leverage conference presence

State-of-the-art supercomputers, sophisticated software and high-speed research networks will be on tap as central-Ohio technology experts travel this weekend to Denver for SC17 (https://sc17.supercomputing.org/), the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.

Ohio Supercomputer Center runs largest scale calculation ever

The Ohio Supercomputer Center recently displayed the power of its new Owens Cluster by running the single-largest scale calculation in the Center’s history.

Scientel IT Corp used 16,800 cores of the Owens Cluster on May 24 to test database software optimized to run on supercomputer systems. The seamless run created 1.25 Terabytes of synthetic data. For the full story, please see OSC's website.

Research using Ohio Supercomputer Center resources continues to break new ground, and OSC clients continue to gain more high performance computer power and a better experience.

Nearly 100 attendees gathered at the Ohio Technology Consortium building for the conference, which featured a keynote address from NVIDIA’s Jonathan Bentz, breakout sessions on a variety of topics and the ever-popular poster and flash talk competitions. Participants presented 24 posters and 10 flash talks with winners receiving 5,000 resource units of time on OSC systems while runners-up gained 2,500 resource units.

Officials dedicate OSC’s newest, most powerful supercomputer

J.C. “Jesse” Owens possessed both elite speed and raw power, which he honed and blended on his way to winning four Olympic gold medals in 1936.

Those impressive traits—elite speed and raw power—now are shared by the newest and most powerful supercomputer in the history of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, a system which, appropriately, is named for the late Ohio-raised sprinter.
