International Interactive Computing Collaboration

2i2c Vision Principles

  • Ubiquitous interactive computing
  • Align with university mission
  • Openly share best practices and code
  • Collaborate instead of compete
  • Cloud infrastructure agnostic

Scenarios

Scenarios

  1. Universities
  2. Teams

Scenario 1: Universities

  • Campus-wide interactive computing
  • LMS, SSO, research data integrations
  • Last mile for computing in courses
  • Train the trainers strategies

Example: Syzygy

Example: UC Berkeley

Lessons Learned

  • Transdisciplinary transformation is underway
  • Scalability strategy has been identified
  • Curriculum redesign challenge remains
  • Who should own interactive computing stack?

Scenario 2: Teams

  • Curated interactive HPC
  • Perfect-barrier data integrations
  • Explosively collaborative
  • Accelerate knowledge mobilization

Examples

Lessons Learned

  • Interactive computing is a nexus for collaboration
    • Academy-Industry
    • Interdisciplinary
    • Academy-Government
    • Teams mobilize knowledge
  • Requirements for teams are heterogenous
    • SSO, IP, data privacy,…
    • CPU, GPU, FPGA, storage, memory,…
    • Hub lifetimes: ephemeral to enduring
