There’s new support for researchers at the U of S. A new blog featuring news and information about how research can be assisted by computing is now live at http://words.usask.ca/researchcomputing/
Written primarily by Research Computing support staff (including Jason Hlady, pictured above) in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), the new ICT Research Computing blog will keep up a steady stream of helpful information about new and evolving computing resources.
For example, the inaugural post announces ICT’s new computing cluster for research and instruction. It explains how the new cluster -- called Zeno -- uses graphics processors (GPUs) to accelerate computing and why that makes it such a powerful new research tool.
Other articles will discuss software that could open up research and scholarly work in exciting ways – such as using programs like MATLAB and Mathematica to analyze images or to plot unusual math functions.
The blog will also present helpful methodologies (such as for the optimum use of a geographic information system (GIS)), tips on visualization techniques, and more.
Written for a diverse audience, this blog aims to deliver valuable information for all those engaged in research, scholarly and artistic work at the U of S.
