The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) launched the Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) 22 years ago in response to the low representation of women in STEM fields, particularly information technology. The program hopes to inspire more Ohio middle school girls to get excited about science and pursue a career in the field.
Fifteen Ohio middle school girls attended the Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) from July 17-23 2022.
The girls learned about data and watersheds and practiced analyzing water samples before going on an excursion to Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park Nature Center southwest of Columbus. At the creek, the girls examined water samples and went to the park’s Nature Center, where they learned about the different ecosystems within the park.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) has officially launched Ascend, its new high performance computing (HPC) cluster designed to accommodate the growth of client work in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and machine learning.
Since its founding in 1987, OSC has remained on the forefront of technology by continually upgrading and launching new high performance computing resources while expanding its services to an array of academic disciplines and industries. As Ohio focuses on heightening its scientific capabilities and workforce development strategies to ensure its economic success, OSC is becoming an even more critical state resource.
Continuing a long tradition of leadership in the field, Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) staff participated in and helped plan three large research computing-focused conferences this fall, advancing and learning from the national conversation in high performance computing (HPC).
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) is a project partner in the National Science Foundation-funded Artificial Intelligence (AI) Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment (ICICLE) and will host an All Hands Meeting Nov. 2-3.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) leadership and staff have played a significant role in the national Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) Conference Series, the latest in a series of conferences beginning in 2006 to address the changing needs of the advanced cyberinfrastructure community.
A broad array of researchers, developers, system administrators and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library for high performance computing will gather at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Monday, Aug. 22, through Wednesday, Aug. 24, for the 10th meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group (MUG).
Since 1989, OSC's Summer Institute program has inspired Ohio high school students like Elle Howard to pursue higher education and careers in STEM fields.
OSC has developed a workshop series to help cyberinfrastructure professionals gain expertise in burgeoning artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
