Joel Zysman, IDSC Advanced Computing Director, spoke to a DDN User Group on how Advanced Computing is set up to “follow the data”. The design of the Advanced Computing core is split into 3 core areas: Big Data/Analytics, High-Performance Computing Operations, and Cloud Services. University of Miami storage is not local on the servers, instead, storage is in the middle of the data design. This design led to a series of SENSOR NETWORKS PROJECTS that fed into Smart Cities development. Read more “Series of Sensors Projects feeds Smart City Development”
The University of Miami’s School of Architecture (SoA) and the Center for Computational Science (CCS) will be collaborating with IT leaders in the Yucatán to create ZenCiti, a “smart city” expected to revolutionize the IT world with its integration of technology into everyday life. In March 2016, the CCS partnered with “Heuristic,” the Yucatán State Government’s Information Technologies Innovation Center. The SoA then joined the hemispheric connection, and ZenCiti was born. Named after the switched syllables in the word “citizen,” ZenCiti will use technology to monitor everyday functions, such as transportation and sewer systems, in order to help them reach their maximum capacity and efficiency.

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.
As part of a partnership to foster hemispheric aspirations and make the University of Miami a “Pan American University”, CCS visited Merida, Mexico, May 23-26, 2016. This partnership is part of UM’s deliberate strategy to take advantage of Miami’s geographical location at the crossroads of the Americas and at the heart of the Americas.
