• 1/10/20 - 3/13/20HPC User Training Series SDSC supports the training of its user community, including students, in all aspects of High-performance computing (HPC). The goal of the training is to prepare new HPC users to run jobs on HPC systems. The scope of the training effort includes several skill development activities, including: HPC architectures, software, and admin skills; Jupyter Notebooks; Basics of parallel programming; Performance characterization of the cluster; Visualization and analysis of big data sets; and other topics. Participants will be given accounts on Comet, the SDSC Supercomputer, and the opportunity to complete several basic assignments. Students who successfully complete the HPC Training program will receive an SDSC Certificate of Completion in HPC Training and UCSD Co-Curricular Record Credit (for students). SDSC Synthesis Center (E-B143)
  • 1/23/20Comet Webinar: Using the NVIDIA Rapids Toolkit on CometThe open source NVIDIA RAPIDS project allows data scientists to GPU-accelerate their data science and data analytics applications from beginning to end, creating possibilities for drastic performance gains and techniques not available through traditional CPU-only workflows. In this webinar we will show how to use RAPIDS to accelerate your data science applications utilizing RAPIDS libraries like cuDF (GPU-enabled  Pandas-like dataframes) and cuML (GPU-accelerated machine learning algorithms). We will demonstrate how to use Jupyter Notebooks on Comet to accelerate Data Science workflows with RAPIDS using interactive computing methods.Webinar
  • 2/25/20 - 2/27/20GO FAIR Train-the-Trainer WorkshopMark your calendars! A 2 ½ day workshop will be held early next year at Georgia Tech. In collaboration with the South Big Data Hub, we will provide advanced GO FAIR training aimed at developing a pool of trainers based in the U.S. Topics include adding value to data with semantic tools, teaching FAIR techniques, uptake of FAIR awareness and practices, and more. The application process is now open for 24 seats, and will be reviewed in early December. Atlanta, GA
  • 2/27/20SDSC Technology Forum Breakfast: Accelerating AI and Machine Learning Applications with NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA AI Platform Join us for breakfast and hear NEC representatives discuss the SX-Aurora technology and how it can accelerate statistical machine learning applications using Spark and Scikit and AI techniques such as Deep Learning using TensorFlow.  Synthesis Center EB143
  • 4/23/20Technology Forum Breakfast: Spinning up a Virtual, World-Class Supercomputer using Cloud Computing In November 2019, SDSC researcher Frank Wuerthwein and his collaborators marshalled the resources of multiple commercial cloud computing providers to assemble a massive virtual supercomputer to solve a real world, multi-messenger astronomy computing problem.  Join us for breakfast and to hear about this achievement and what it portends for the future of supercomputing.  Synthesis Center EB143
  • 6/22/20 - 8/14/20Summer Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) ProgramProposal submission due by January 24!  The SDSC REHS program goes beyond the standard REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program, on which it is based, by integrating students into existing multidisciplinary research teams and thereby into the national computational science effort, while still in high school.  The program is designed to encourage students from diverse backgrounds and interests to become the next generation of computational scientists.
