The Center for Computationally Assisted Science and Technology (CCAST) at the North Dakota State University (NDSU) provides high performance computing (HPC) resources to NDSU and various other institutions within North Dakota. With more than 12,000 CPU cores and 70 GPUs, CCAST is the largest academic supercomputing facility in the state of North Dakota.
Education and Training
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.
Annual publication highlights how OSC serves the needs of the state and national high performance computing community with new and expanded resources and services.
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.
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).
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.
