SciNet is pleased to announce the addition of a new certificate program, focused on Data Science. As many of you know, SciNet not only provides compute cycles and storage, but also offers a wide range of education and training sessions. Users can already get a SciNet certificate in Scientific Computing or High Performance Computing when
We had a great time at Science Rendezvous on May 9th, 2015! Science Rendezvous is an annual festival in Canada that takes science out of the lab and onto the street. The University of Toronto is one of the event sites, and SciNet has been part of this event for many years. At the SciNet
As part of its strategy for Advanced Research Computing and High Performance Computing in Canada, Compute Canada has conducted a site selection for four new systems. These systems are intended to replace and augment the currently aging computational systems available to Canadian academic researchers. Recognizing the diversity of ARC computing in academic research, Compute Canada
SciNet, SAS, the computer science department at Earl Haig Secondary School in Toronto, and NRC Research Press organized a Big Data Challenge for High School Students in 2014. Selected teams presented their analysis of a real data set of grocery purchases for the jury on Friday February 13, 2015. The winners were the team from

What is supercomputing? Supercomputing, or High Performance Computing, is using the largest computers available to tackle the biggest problems facing science, society, or industry. Whether generating computer models of unprecedented fidelity in the aerospace, biological or climate sciences, or analyzing vast amounts of data from astronomy, business data in industry, or textual or musical data
