Collaboration among researchers in the curation of digital resources is becoming the norm these days.  However, even if your intention is to make your digital assets available to the research community and to link them appropriately, it can still be challenging to make that happen.

Here's a short and satisfying story of one such collaboration in the field of natural history -- serendipitous to be sure, but likely to become more and more common.

Undergraduate student uses Savio to perform Natural Language Processing on Fanfiction

Smitha Milli and David Bamman

Smitha Milli, a fourth year Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, is collaborating with David Bamman, Assistant Professor at the Berkeley School of Information, to perform Natural Language Processing (NLP) on fanfiction texts.

New and prospective users of Savio and other Berkeley Research Computing high performance computing (HPC) clusters (Cortex and Vector) are invited to attend an introductory training session on Tuesday, August 2, 2016. Topics will include a system overview and a review of basic cluster usage, such as logging in, accessing software, running jobs, and transferring files.

Theoretical chemists use Savio to build molecular computational models

Eric Neuscamman

“Well, I’m not safe near real chemicals,” says UC Berkeley Professor Eric Neuscamman, a theoretical chemist working to develop increasingly accurate and computationally cost-effective methods of modeling electron behavior in molecules. To inform chemists’ experimentation, theoretical chemists use supercomputers to solve complex mathematical equations, including the Schrödinger equation, that yield predictive models of what molecules will do in chemical reactions.
