This summer, CI Compass will be sharing reading materials and resources that members and partners found interesting and valuable in recent months as a part of its 2023 Summer Reading Program campaign. From papers on cybersecurity, open science, FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and more.
“Connecting members of the cyberinfrastructure community to exchange ideas and valuable resources for current events in our field will create an invaluable resource. Hopefully, this is just a start.” said Ewa Deelman, Director of CI Compass and research professor at the University of Southern California. “Collaboration is key to creating robust and innovative cyberinfrastructure solutions.”
Cyberinfrastructure practitioners of all levels are invited to participate in the program by reading along through the summer as resources are shared. CI Compass will be sharing items weekly on its Twitter account @CiCompass, and CI Compass LinkedIn page. The website will be updated periodically with a summary of the submissions where participants can find the linked resources. Community members are also encouraged to submit reading to the campaign by completing this form.
Updated: The 2023 CI Compass Summer Reading Materials
The AI Index Report
- Recommended by Charles Vardeman, CI Compass Knowledge Engineering and AI Expert: "The AI Index Report from Stanford's Human Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) is a yearly report that gives an overall view of AI research, industry adoption and human-centric impacts of artificial intelligence. It provides statistics for "grounding" discussion on Artificial Intelligence technologies and impacts."
ChemCrow: Augmenting large-language models with chemistry tools
- Recommended by Charles Vardeman: "I recommended these papers as examples of LLM (GPT) based agents for scientific research to illustrate how scientists might leverage these emerging technologies to advance scientific knowledge." (1/2)
Cybersecurity in a Large-Scale Resarch Facility--One Institution's Approach
- Recommended by Jim Basney: "A good introduction to MagLab and in-depth discussion of an effective cybersecurity program for an NSF Major Facility."
Data Streams: the Research Data Alliance Podcast
- Recommended by Angela Murillo, CI Compass co-Principal Investigator, CI Compass Student Fellowship Director: "This podcast as it provides ideas, insights, insights, and solutions for a variety of research data management challenges, including FAIR, persistent identifiers, sensitive data, and data citation."
Emergent autonomous scientific research capabilites of large language models
- Recommended by Charles Vardeman: "I recommended these papers as examples of LLM (GPT) based agents for scientific research to illustrate how scientists might leverage these emerging technologies to advance scientific knowledge." (2/2)
FAIR Data Podcast
- Recommended by Angela Murillo: "I recommend this podcast as it provides many examples, approaches, insights, developments, and perspectives regarding making research data FAIR."
Practical Deep Learning for Coders
- Recommended by Charles Vardeman: "The 'Practical Deep Learning' course provides an excellent introduction to the foundations of deep learning and neural network applications using stable diffusion as an implementation example. It provides an understandable resource for AI beginners to understand the technology assuming just a general programming background."
Strengthening and Democratizing the U.S. Artificial Intelligence Innovation Ecosystem: An Implementation Plan for a National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource
- Recommended by Charles Vardeman: "The National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource presents a vision for evolving and implementing " - a shared research infrastructure that would provide AI researchers and students with significantly expanded access to computational resources, high-quality data, educational tools, and user support."
Trusted CI Experiences in Cybersecurity and Service to Open Science
- Recommended by Jim Basney, Director of Trusted CI: "A good introduction to Trusted CI and the cybersecurity needs of NSF projects."
