What Can Digital Research Tools Do for Me? (oriented to natural/applied sciences)

Digital research tools can help today’s researchers meet ambitious goals and overcome significant challenges, such as

  • Mining and analyzing a large data set
  • Modelling that is too complex for desktop computing
  • Identifying patterns or trends in spatial data or visual imagery
  • Developing a web-based research/analysis tool

In this session, equip yourself with basic terms and concepts related to high performance (HPC), supercomputing and big data analytics, and an understanding of the computing power and expert support available to you through the Digital Research Alliance of Canada and ACENET. Learn how advanced computing is already serving researchers across the sciences, and how you can get started.
