Boise State University’s annual Research Computing Days event was held March 28-29 in the Student Union Building. A range of high-performance computing, cybersecurity, data science and artificial intelligence training for attendees was led by Boise State’s Research Computing Services staff in the Office of Information Technology, University of Idaho’s High Performance Computing Director, and Boise State faculty and Ph.D. students. Additionally, Amazon Web Services offered a two-hour session on their cloud resources and AI toolkits.
The conference drew registrants from throughout the Pacific Northwest, ranging from students to research professionals who work for state agencies and local industries. A poster competition and “Research Data as Art” exhibit was held in the Keith and Catherine Stein Luminary and Boise State’s Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Student Chapter hosted a co-located Hackathon in the Student Union.
