Parallel Computing with MATLAB and Scaling to the Savio Cluster

August 15, 2018, 9:00am
A hands-on workshop for more experienced MATLAB users seeking to reduce workflow cycle and solve computationally and data-intensive problems faster by scaling to the Savio Cluster. The agenda will include: 5-minute introduction by Berkeley Research Computing staff 20-minute overview of parallel computing with MATLAB 90-minute hands-on, self-paced workshop for building parallel MATLAB applications 30-minute Q&A session of workshop 45-minute hands-on session of submitting job to Savio Cluster Highlights: Reduce cycle time for your workflow & solve computationally and data-intensive problems faster Built-in support for parallel computing Creating parallel applications to speed up independent tasks Scaling up to computer clusters, grid environments or clouds Employing GPUs to speed up your computations Programming with tall and distributed arrays to work with large data sets

Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society (HIFIS)

The Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society (HIFIS) at UC Berkeley brings together researchers, organizers, stakeholders, communicators, and policymakers to identify and eliminate the barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society and to create transformative change toward a more equitable nation.

Research to Impact

Research to Impact is a year-long colloquium series organized by the affiliated faculty of the Haas Institute that aims to share leading edge research and spark generative exchange and collaboration on issues of diversity and inclusion.

Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

May 8, 2018
As part of the Designing for Digital Literacy Series co-presented by the AIS, the Library, and the College Writing Program, a group of instructors, staff and librarians gathered on April 18, 2018 to discuss the implications of algorithmic bias for student research and learning. Librarian Cody Hennesy kicked off the conversation by outlining Safiya Noble’s research on how popular platforms such as Google and Facebook engage in technological redlining. This kind of work provides opportunities to help students connect discussions about scholarly resources with issues of bias and point of view in the broader information landscape.
