Update from Research IT
Research IT Club
Catch up on the latest news about our new equipment, services and technology, see how our research software engineers have helped a researcher to make his database easily available worldwide and read about our Cloud Bursting service in action. This is all in the presentations from our recent Research IT Club.
Free GIS Workshop
N8 CIR is running a free GIS open source workshop at the Universit of Manchester on the 11th of December. The workshop will take you from the fundamentals of mapped data up to the point where you can understand and perform complex geographic information systems (GIS) operations.
It will use QGIS, the leading Open Source GIS, together with tools from its ecosystem of open-source add-on contributions.
Research Lifecycle Programme Updates
Innovation Communities – upcoming events
Next week, two innovation community events are taking place, based on Imaging and Visualisation and Robotics and AI.
These events are open to all who work with or have an interest in the topic. Lunch and refreshments will be served.
Find out more and register below.
- Imaging and Visualisation – Monday 28 October, featuring talks on Imaging Life on Earth, the Data Visualisation Observatory and Medical Image Analysis
- Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Wednesday 30 October, featuring a talk on Small Molecule Robotics, Deep Learning, Agile Robots Inspired by Animals and Predicting the Human in HRI.
This meeting follows on from a Robotics@Manchester workshop in September 2018 organised by Digital Futures with Professors Angelo Cangelosi and Barry Lennox, at which University researchers presented ongoing projects in this area and identified proposals and opportunities for a proposed UoM robotics entity/centre/institute. If you are interested in hearing about future activity with this community please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Edge Compute workshops
The edge compute project under the Research Lifecycle Programme has recently started and we want to hear from you! We’d like to hear your feedback on what the edge compute service should and should not do, in order for it to be useful to you.
