Benefits of Advanced Research Computing for Ontario
Interpreting big data using advanced computing capabilities is transforming how we conduct research, make products and deliver services. It involves gathering, processing and disseminating massive amounts of data – impossible to do in the past – and translating it into usable information. For example advanced research computing can help researchers determine a person’s risk for developing certain diseases, improve healthcare outcomes for premature babies and boost farm operations to create positive environmental impacts.
There are many other benefits of supporting Advanced Research Computing in Ontario:
Making Ontario research institutions and researchers more competitive internationally including areas such as genomic, neuroscience and biomedical research
Enhancing competitiveness of sectors that are key to Ontario’s prosperity: advanced manufacturing, mining, digital media, screen industries, financial services, agriculture, transportation
Providing a critical recruitment and retention tool for research facilities, as well as opportunities for training of Highly Qualified Personnel
