NSF Project Sets Up First Machine Learning Cyberinfrastructure – CHASE-CI
"Adding machine learning capabilities to the Pacific Research Platform is the next logical step in enabling distributed data-intensive application teams. All of this community cyberinfrastructure is only possible because we can build on the world-class CENIC regional optical network." - Larry Smarr, Director Calit2
The National Science Foundation has issued a $1 million grant to Larry Smarr, director of Calit2, and his colleagues to create a community cyber infrastructure in support of machine learning research. The innovative project– Cognitive Hardware and Software Ecosystem, Community Infrastructure (CHASE-CI) – is intended to leverage the high-speed Pacific Research Platform (PRP) to address machine learning and its distinct hardware, software, and architecture needs.
