The first-ever invitational Summit on Educational Data Visualization is bringing together national education scholars, business leaders and technology experts for a discussion on the essential role big data plays in solving some of education’s biggest challenges.
The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin today announced it has received a commitment of $10 million from the O'Donnell Foundation to advance data-driven science, also called data-enabled or data-intensive science.
Event: Dr. Kelly Gaither, director of data and information analysis at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), will discuss why scientific visualization is such a powerful tool for understanding science in the 21st century. The science community faces two extraordinary and relatively sudden transitions in technology with transformative potential for computational research and education. First… » Continue Reading
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a $7 million grant to the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin for a three-year project that will provide a new computing resource and the largest, most comprehensive suite of visualization and data analysis (VDA) services to the open science community.
Ranger, a key resource on the National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid and the most powerful academic system in the world, is now even more attractive to researchers who depend on it to do advanced scientific analysis. With the integration of Spur, they now have the ability to visualize their data immediately.
Don't Even Think About It: Former baseball player Ray Knight said, 'Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary' and very succinctly summed up about half of the tenets of sport psychology. Much-loved Longhorn and coaching legend Darrell Royal summed up the other half when he stated, 'Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.'
