The Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) is a cooperative of faculty and technologists working to advance the existing body of computing knowledge and expertise at UCLA.
The IDRE mission is to support, advance and guide a campus-wide program to position UCLA as a world leader in research and education in computational thinking, using high performance computation, data visualization and data analysis of large data sets and databases.
IDRE supports research and innovative scholarship that takes advantage of new technologies and encourages collaboration between faculty from different departments and disciplines at UCLA, the opening of new research questions, and the enrichment of the learning environment. The goal of this campus-wide collective is to make UCLA a world leader in high-performance computing and visualization research and education.
IDRE programs are focused on the challenges and opportunities associated with five areas critical to advancing innovative research and scholarship: Computation and Storage, GPU/Many Core, Pipeline to Leadership Class Facilities; Statistical Computing/Data Informatics; and GIS, Visualization and Modeling.
Through the IDRE Research Technology Group (RTG), IDRE provides services and support aligned with the five program areas. IDRE’s unique computational capability includes High Performance Computing resources and expertise, Grid and Cloud Access Services, Cluster Services, the Grid Portal, and UCLA’s data center system.
