UMass Amherst Computer Scientists Develop New Techniques to Measure Social Bias in Software

Today, banks are increasingly using software to decide who will get a loan, courts to judge who should be denied bail, and hospitals to choose treatments for patients. These uses of software make it critical that the software does not discriminate against groups or individuals, say computer science researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. […]

Software Defined Infrastructure

Software defined infrastructure (SDI) enables organizations to deliver HPC services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. Software Defined Infrastructure is the foundation for a fully integrated environment, optimizing compute, storage and networking infrastructure to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and dynamically managing workloads and data, transforming a static infrastructure into a workload- , resource- and data-aware environment.
