Press Releases

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.

The Ecosystem for Research Networking (ERN), a team consisting of members from Rutgers University, MGHPCC, Omnibond, Virginia Tech, UMass Amherst, Penn State University and Pegasus, is developing a way to use scientific instruments remotely online. The project seeks to improve access to high-cost, specialized equipment to advance national research initiatives.

Sharma's research group at Strouds Run State Park Athens, Ohio

When he joined the Ohio University faculty in 2015, Sumit Sharma found a new application for his expertise in molecular modeling and simulations: understanding pipeline corrosion.

The university’s Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Technology investigates the causes of—and solutions for—this costly problem for the oil and gas industry. Although energy companies had been adding corrosion inhibitors to pipelines, the industry wanted to learn more about how the inhibitors work at the molecular level, Sharma said.
