The University Research Informatics Data Environment, also known as “URIDE“, is a large scale data services atmosphere where de-identified data from multiple clinical and research sciences systems can be explored preparatory to research, prospective and retrospective analysis. The goal of URIDE is to provide a single, secure, exploratory environment for all clinically and scientifically derived data for research at the University. It does not contain data from Jackson Memorial Hospital. Read more “In-Depth URIDE Discussion, Thursday 7/21/2016”
Scientists, engineers, social scientists, and humanists around the world—many of them at colleges and universities—use advanced digital resources and services every day. Things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new tools are critical to the success of those researchers, who use them to make our lives healthier, safer, and better. XSEDE (Extreme Science Engineering and Discovery Environment) integrates these resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.

In March 2016, the University of Miami announced a hemispheric collaboration between the Institute for Data Science and Computing and the Yucatán State Government’s Information Technologies Innovation Center known as “Heuristic“, located in the Yucatán Science and Technology Park. Taking that collaboration a step further, the UM School of Architecture (SoA), its Responsive Architecture and Design Lab (RAD-UM Lab), and IDSC will come together to design “Zenciti“, a smart city next to the science park.
