Introduction to Research Data Management

17 November 2023, 10:00am - 12:00pm

As a Western researcher or HDR Candidate, is important to understand your responsibilities around the management of your research data. Western’s Research Data Management Policy requires all researchers and HDR candidates to develop a Research Data Management Plan (RDMP) prior to starting research at the University. A RDMP will help you think proactively about your project and the data that will be produced, including how it will be collected, organised, managed, stored, preserved, shared and possibly published during and after your research project.

Machine Learning eResearch Platform for Australian Researchers

28 November 2023 | 3:00 - 4:30pm

To efficiently manage GPU resources and reduce entry barriers, Monash University, UQ, QCIF, and ARDC have implemented a machine learning service known as the Machine Learning eResearch Platform (MLeRP). They have also developed user-friendly training materials for easy adoption. MLeRP bridges the gap, offering the interactivity of a notebook and the computational power of an HPC environment, allowing resource sharing among users when code is not actively running. This platform is set to launch on November 7th and will be introduced by the Monash University team during this presentation. The team will delve into what sets MLeRP apart from other HPC platforms and how to leverage its hardware effectively. The presentation will include an overview of MLeRP's features, a live demonstration, and a brief introduction. The presenters, Dr. Slava Kitaeff and Mitchell Hargreaves, represent all partner institutions, but are from Monash University.
