The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) developed the Open OnDemand platform with the aim of making high performance computing (HPC) easier for anyone needing to do data-intensive work. After adopting the platform on their systems, IT staff at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) published a research paper that confirmed Open OnDemand’s significant positive impact on HPC usage in their organization.

Emily Miraldi, assistant professor in the Divisions of Immunobiology and Biomedical Informatics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Department of Pediatrics at University of Cincinnati School of Medicine, leads an “immune-engineering” research group that uses mathematical modeling of the immune system to predict immune responses and understand disease.

Eighteen middle school girls from across the state attended the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s Young Women’s Summer Institute in July. Over the course of the one-week camp, the girls collected data from Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park and worked in groups to analyze water quality issues in Ohio’s watersheds.

Staff at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) led discussions on national computing and cyberinfrastructure issues at the Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) 2023 conference series held July 23-27 in Portland, Oregon.

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is completing a two-year pilot project, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, to train more high performance computing (HPC) professionals in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

With a $5.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Case Western Reserve University, the Ohio Supercomputer Center and the University of Cincinnati will work to optimize the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning by making trained experts available to researchers statewide.

This year 20 high school students attended the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Summer Institute (SI), where they worked in teams to complete STEM projects, attended tours of research facilities and museums around The Ohio State University’s Columbus campus and participated in social activities such as basketball and board games.

SUG Winner Pranav Jois recieves certificate from OSC Executive Director Dave Hudak

As a freshman in high school, Pranav Jois toured the State of Ohio Computer Center, which houses the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) high performance computing clusters, with his Science Olympiad team. At the time he felt the technology was “a little intimidating,” he recalled, and “never in a million years” thought he would use it.
