Impact. In the past 18 months, that is the result the SOSCIP research consortium has had.
How can high performance computing (HPC) help with disaster planning, diagnosing chromosome-related disorders, and improving therapy for cancer patients? Three new Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) research projects have been approved to take on these tasks, with the end possibility of saving cities and healthcare systems money, and improving the quality of life for both city patrons, and patients with challenging diagnoses.
The Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) Consortium invites Ontario Businesses to submit research project proposals. These projects will enable Ontario Businesses to collaborate with talented university researchers and access unique and powerful high performance computing platforms.
This Call for Proposals is intended to help Ontario Businesses:
The first round of projects from the SOSCIP Research Consortium are underway, and the researchers are working on some important and interesting subjects. Here is a list of resources that help to overview the first set of research.
