Ridgecrest Earthquakes Shake Southern California

Responding to the recent earthquakes in Southern California — a magnitude 6.4 on July 4 and a magnitude 7.1 on July 5 — natural hazards engineers and other researchers who are part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) network jumped into action. Research teams are sharing and publishing data and assessment reports using NSF-NHERI's DesignSafe cyberinfrastructure, which was developed and is powered by TACC.

All shook up

  For the Love of Science

For the Love of Science

You don't have to be a scientist to contribute to research projects in biomedicine, physics, astronomy, artificial intelligence, or earth sciences. Using specialized, open-source software from the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing project (BOINC), hundreds of thousands of home and work computers are being voluntarily used for the pursuit of science. TACC started its own project in 2017 — BOINC@TACC — to allow the public to help solve science problems. It's the first use of volunteer computing by a leading HPC center.

High school students participating in the Code@TACC Connected summer camp.


Code@TACC 2019 Connected Summer Camp

Rising 11th and 12th grade students skipped the beach to spend a week at the Code@TACC Connected summer camp, which took place this month. Code@TACC Connected is an innovative, exciting program where coding meets communities. Students created solutions to socially relevant problems using cloud-connected networked sensors.

Using Machine Learning to Analyze Key Capacitor Materials

Scientists at Georgia Tech are using machine learning with supercomputers to find ways to build more capable capacitors. Supercomputers analyzed the electronic structure of materials, simulated on Stampede2 at TACC and Comet at SDSC. Improved capacitors could play a major role in powering future machines, from electric cars to cell phones.

Powering the future
