Hewlett Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute and The Society of High Performance Computing Professionals partner to educate the next generation of data science professionals and boost Houston’s technological capabilities.
The University of Houston’s Hewlett Packard Enterprise Data Science Institute (HPE DSI) is now an official sponsor of The Society of High Performance Computing Professionals (SHPCP). Martin Huarte Espinosa, Ph.D., a research scientist with the institute, was appointed executive director.
The institute’s mission is to advance research and education in support of Houston’s energy, health, technology, and aerospace industries, including the provisioning of academic programs to develop a well-equipped workforce with high-quality skills and knowledge in data analytics.
HPE DSI’s partnership with SHPCP furthers this mission, aiming to educate and connect the data science and high-performance computing community to state-of-art-technology to cultivate the future workforce.
“This partnership positions Houston as a highly-competitive force in all aspects of data science and scientific computing,” says Espinosa. “UH provides a robust education and SHPCP provides opportunities for students to be exposed to a professional ecosystem of ever-evolving technologies.”
Together HPE DSI and SHPCP will focus on the computational challenges of AI, cloud computing, cyber security, data science, deep learning, machine learning and visualization.
