Students Turn Summer Research into SC17 Research Poster

November 7, 2017

Instead of going on vacation last summer, recent computer science graduates Tom Corcoran and Rafael Zamora went to work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. They were invited to stay on at the lab because of their advanced work at the intersection of protein classification and machine learning. Their project also got them an invitation to present their work at the 2017 Supercomputing Conference in Denver. At the conference, to be held November 12-17, the two will present a poster… Read More »
