UCL Affiliates with Software Carpentry Foundation
Jan 21, 2015 17:27PM
Software Carpentry is a volunteer organisation whose goal is to make scientists more productive, and their work more reliable, by teaching them basic computing skills. Founded in 1998, it runs short, intensive workshops that cover program design, version control, testing, and task automation. In October 2014, a non-profit Software Carpentry Foundation was created to act as a governing body for the project.Read more...
UCL Research IT Services helps to win big-data research grant
Nov 25, 2014 12:06PM
Compressive sensing is a recent breakthrough in information theory that has the potential to revolutionise the acquisition and analysis of data in many fields. UCL Research IT Services (RITS) are an integral part of a team that recently secured grants from the UK research councils to develop compressive sensing techniques to address the challenge of extracting meaningful information from big-data.Read more...
We are keen to pursue partnership and innovation opportunities related to the development, delivery and use of our services.
