UA’s free HPC resources are popular and demand is increasing. Researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines are exploring new areas such as machine learning and deep learning. The UITS Research Technologies group has been working to meet this new demand head on.
What the Messier 87 black hole would look like? UA researchers Dimitrios Psaltis, Feryal Ozel, Chi-kwan Chan, and Lia Medeiros used the El Gato system in the Computer Center's Research Data Center to model it before processing of the Event Horizon Telescope data was completed.
Two new institutes have put the UA on track to become a data science powerhouse at the national level and leader in promoting data science literacy and transdisciplinary research.
UA researchers and students are able to use campus computing resources to advance their work. Meet a graduate student who was able to complete her research into population genetics without grants, an astronomer who has processing power immediately available to run computations on the physics of galaxy formation, and a neuroscientist processing big, complex data to investigate Alzheimer's.
