Computing’s newest internship program focuses on DevOps methodologies. The inaugural class of 2021 built a persistent data services provisioning application that will soon assist real Livermore Computing users.
The Center for Applied Scientific Computing and Data Science Institute welcomed a new academic partner to the 2021 Data Science Challenge program: the University of California Riverside campus. The intensive program has run for three years with UC Merced, and it tasks students with addressing a real-world scientific problem using data science techniques.
LLNL and Purdue are partnering to speed up drug design using computational tools under the Accelerating Therapeutic Opportunities in Medicine project. LLNL researcher Jonathan Allen mentored students and two teaching assistants, introducing them to computationally driven drug discovery and designing predictive models for drug candidates.
Meeting virtually three times per week, 22 UC Merced students engaged with LLNL mentors and peers to address a real-world challenge problem, using machine learning to identify potentially hazardous asteroids that could pose an existential threat to humanity.
