James Glass is a senior research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Glass leads the Spoken Language Systems Group in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL.) His research is focused on automatic speech recognition, unsupervised speech processing, and spoken language understanding. This past spring, assisted by graduate student David Harwath, Glass was the instructor for MIT’s 6.345/HST.728 Automatic Speech Recognition class but this year, for the first time, students had the option of using high performance computing resources at the MGHPCC to facilitate their work.

Ideas and Planning for Research Computing at Boston area Universities, Institutes, Hospitals and Companies

HPC Futures is a one day exploration of ideas and planning for future computational research at the Boston area universities, institutes, hospitals, libraries and companies. Future needs may be driven both by ambitious research goals, by increasing needs to work across traditional academic and institutional boundaries, by increasing interaction with national and international cyberinfrastructures and by technological advances such as IoT, cloud computing, deep learning, computer hardware advances and cybersecurity considerations. We examine these issues within a celebration of the most exciting and important research happening in the Boston area
