For the scientists and researchers linked to the Pacific Research Platform, the conduct of science was already at the desk and important discovery and knowledge continued uninterrupted during COVID-19.
Supported by CENIC's 400-gigabit research network, the Pacific Research Platform has not only enabled researchers at UC San Diego and their partners at the University of Haifa in Israel to go ahead with their archeological dig despite the COVID-19 pandemic but also drastically accelerated data analysis times.
Thanks to a new agreement between CENIC and the City of Alameda in Northern California, students will get to work with first-of-its-kind data captured from autonomous ocean vehicles studying everything from marine wildlife to climate models.
High-speed Internet is redefining K-12 education in the US. Studies show that learning outcomes are better when technology is integrated into pedagogically sound teaching. Two vastly different California schools are showing the power of broadband by using the same digital learning tools.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego used satellite images from multiple sources to map and understand city growth patterns in India, with the help of computers trained to distinguish types of growth. The technology is also being used to identify refugee camps and schools in Africa.
