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.
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.
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.
When Nicholas Johnson was in high school, he kept hearing that he should avoid office jobs because he wouldn't like working 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. behind a desk.
Annual publication highlights how OSC serves the needs of the state and national high performance computing community with new and expanded resources and services.
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) 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.
