San Diego State University is excited to announce the funding of the first computational core facility focused on meeting the research needs of faculty within the California State University (CSU) system by the National Science Foundation. The Technology Infrastructure for Data Exploration (TIDE) is designed to support cutting-edge research in machine learning and AI. The computing architecture is based on powerful graphics, high-performance processors, and ample storage to support research discovery.

The main objective of our collaborative team with project leadership at San Diego State University, CSU San Bernardino, Cal Poly Humboldt, CSU Stanislaus, and the San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC) is to boost data-intensive research in various scientific fields across our 23 CSU campuses.

Examples of Scientific Thrusts include:

  • Developing AI for humanoid robots can lead to advancements in robotics.
  • Exploring computational chemistry, mainly focusing on tetrapyrrole molecules, to enhance our understanding of biological processes and materials.
  • Advancing hyperdimensional computing to make deep neural networks more efficient.
  • Applying modern techniques like photogrammetric analysis in digital archaeology revolutionized how we study the past.

Access to powerful computing resources has become increasingly important for universities to attract data-focused scientists. These resources help with recruitment and enhance research productivity in certain fields. TIDE provides access to these resources and promotes student involvement in research projects. This helps students apply their classroom knowledge to real-world problems and helps them achieve academic success.
