Industrial Engagement

Industrial Engagement icon

The Ohio Supercomputer Center has a long history of supporting industrial research, reaching back as far as the Center’s founding in 1987. Manufacturers have leveraged the Center’s computational and storage resources to design and test many products, such as electronics, fans, containers, fuel cells and wind deflectors.

Increasing Accessibility

Increasing Accessibility

Jane Combs, associate director of research computing services at the University of Cincinnati, wanted to increase accessibility to supercomputing resources. Through Open OnDemand, UC's own cluster is now accessible to numerous faculty, staff and students.

Sentence Pair Modeling

With the increased information-age use of voice interfaces and chatbots, Natural Language Processing (NLP) is becoming one of the world’s most significant technologies, drawing from aspects of computer science, artificial intelligence and linguistics.

Big Data Challenges

Researchers and clinicians at The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center rely upon the staff members of the Biomedical Informatics Shared Resource (BISR) to address their high-throughput, high-dimensional biological data-analysis needs, such as for next-generation sequencing research.

Biological Photoreceptors

In the emerging field of optogenetics, scientists are working to develop light-responsive proteins (photoreceptors) that will allow them to observe the nerve impulses in the brain or to control specific cellular features, such as metabolic pathways, gene expression and ion channels.

Digital Elevation

Until 2018, scientists could find better terrain maps of Mars than they had of Antarctica.

Now, with software engineering, code optimization and parallel software development assistance from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), they have “the highest-resolution terrain map by far of any continent,” according to Ian Howat, Ph.D.

Toxin Diversity

The Ohio State University’s Marymegan Daly and her research partners probed the depths of Monterey Bay to collect samples of the tube-dwelling sea anemone, samples that are allowing the scientists to generate and analyze the transcriptomes of these ancient animals and reveal the diversity of toxins within their venom.

Global Analytics

Spire Global is one of the world's largest spaceto-cloud analytics companies, providing global weather-forecasting services for the maritime and aviation industries as their satellites travel around Earth.

Funding Allocations

Ask any parent worldwide what the most important thing in life is, and the answer will likely be his or her children. Allocations of public funds for families with children vary wildly from country to country, and besides affecting a family’s bottom line these programs could affect a child’s development as well.
