High performance computing (HPC) accelerates the process of research discovery. Most domains now use HPC, and research is increasingly compute- and data-intensive as more scientists and engineers employ machine learning, neural networks and other artificial intelligence (AI) workflows.
In collaboration with other units on campus, ITS-Research Services supports the Argon HPC system which features ~15,000 processor cores and 110 GPU accelerators.
The Interactive Data Analytics Service (IDAS) is a computational resource that supports large-scale and collaborative data analytics workflows involving RStudio for R, Jupyter Notebook for Python, and more. Users may access HPC resources within the IDAS interface using Jupyter Notebooks, while performing interactive data analysis tasks with applications used for AI workflows. A pilot featuring Jupyter & R Studio was launched for early-adopters in late June, and the full production environment will be available August 19, 2019.
HPC and data science workshops are offered by ITS-RS training personnel; watch for upcoming sessions on the HPC website.
