Rice Builds On-Ramp to Cloud Computing

Big data researchers at Rice University will soon be able to compute in the cloud with fewer barriers. The university is installing the Big Research Data Cloud (BiRD Cloud), which will allow for cloud bursting. When an application exceeds local computing capacity, it will be allowed to "burst" with the user's permission so it can share the load with remote servers. BiRD Cloud "will be a great resource for fitting statistical and machine-learning models to big data with massive numbers of variables," says Rice professor Genevera Allen. In one project, Allen is developing statistical tools ...

College Diplomas, With a Side of Specialized Study

The Wall Street Journal

Recent college graduates, especially those in the liberal arts and political sciences, increasingly are turning to coding boot camps, online courses, and community colleges to give them more marketable skills. Unemployment among recent graduates remains above historical highs at about 5 percent, and 45 percent of them are in positions that do not require a degree. A 2013 study from Burning Glass Technologies found liberal-arts graduates doubled the number of job opportunities available to them when they had additional skills, such as marketing, d...
