Steps are being taken to formalize institutional data governance at the University of Iowa. The project aims to advance the university data culture, increase literacy and awareness, support informed decisions, ensure data stewardship, unify data across the university, develop and review policies, prioritize data and data governance projects, and resolve data and governance issues.
The Interactive Data Analytics Service (IDAS) is a high-performance computing (HPC) resource that supports large-scale and collaborative data analytics workflows involving RStudio for R and Jupyter Notebook for Python. IDAS features its own HPC and graphics processing units (GPUs). Users can perform interactive data-analysis tasks with applications used for machine learning and other artificial intelligence workflows.
