What’s cloud computing, and how might you use it in your research? This workshop will cover the basics of what services are available to researchers, how to get access to them, and a set of specific research use cases where cloud computing can help.
A two-session, introductory workshop on using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) for computationally intensive tasks will be held on Monday February 1 and February 8, 2016, from 4:10 to 5:30 p.m., in 1011 Evans Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. The workshop will focus on computations in the areas of data science, data analysis, statistics, and machine learning.
On December 18, 2015, the Research Data Management program held a workshop that was attended by thirty staff from the Library, Campus Shared Services-IT, and Research IT. The workshop’s purpose was to discuss the research data management challenges these consultants are addressing, and to provide training on tools that can be used throughout the research data lifecycle.
On Monday, January 26, Research IT, the D-Lab and the Berkeley Institute for Data Sciences (BIDS) hosted a workshop to bring together groups who offer consultation services to campus researchers. The Consulting Summit’s goal was to share the nature and scope of efforts across nearly two dozen organizations on the campus, discuss the challenges they face, and explore opportunities for coordination across units.
