Ian Foster, senior scientist and distinguished fellow, director of the Data Science and Learning Division at Argonne National Laboratory, and the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, has been selected to receive the 2019 IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS) Charles Babbage Award for his “outstanding contributions in the areas of parallel computing languages, algorith
GlobusWorld 2019 has issued its Call for Presentations. The event takes place May 1-2 in Chicago. The event centers around Globus, a secure, reliable research data management service that enables researchers to move, share, publish & discover data via a single interface.
Powered by Globus Auth, XSEDE's Web Single Sign-On (Web SSO) service provides a uniform, consistent, secure way to sign on to web applications using XSEDE user IDs.
Science gateway and application developers can use XSEDE's Web SSO to enable users to sign-on (login) to an application using either campus or XSEDE credentials. This service is based on Globus Auth, an OpenID Connect/OAuth 2.0 service provided by Globus at the University of Chicago.
Widely deployed platform now offers higher assurance levels for data containing PHI, PII, and CUI.
For scientists who need to manage HIPAA-regulated data or other Protected Health Information (PHI), data management and movement can be a challenge. The difficulties of sharing protected data with collaborators often leads researchers to limit their studies by using highly distilled, de-identified data rather than dealing with compliance and security mandates.
Streaming a blockbuster movie in 4K means sending 15 gigabytes of data to your home in two hours. Argonne National Laboratory researchers recently moved approximately 23,000 times more data (more than 340 terabytes) in the same amount of time from Dallas, Texas, to Chicago, Illinois. The transfer was part of a demonstration that took place at SC18, an annual international conference for high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.
Globus was honored to be named with the organizations that contributed to the NSF IceCube Neutrino Observatory's project to find first evidence of high-energy cosmic neutrino source to pinpoint the origin of cosmic rays. This project won the HPCwire Editor’s Choice award for "Top HPC-Enabled Scientific Achievement" in 2018. Other organizations named in the award were PSC, SDSC, Stanford University, and XSEDE.
Smart home devices and popular web services such as If This Then That (IFTTT) have made it possible for people to automate many routine life tasks. Users can set their thermostat to kick up the heat if the temperature nears freezing, have their washing machine send them a text when a load is finished, or sync up calendars and to-do lists across home and work devices.
Data storage and management presents an increasing challenge to data-intensive research facilities, especially as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning projects generate a skyrocketing amount of data to be processed and analyzed faster and faster. Argonne National Laboratory is no different: as an emerging leader in data science and exascale computing, its researchers conduct leading-edge research in virtually every scientific discipline, collaborating with scientists at industries, universities, and government agencies.
