The CHASE-CI Workshop was an all-day event that took place on Monday, May 14th. Many of the computer scientists across the University of California campuses, as well as other CHASE-CI grant research partners gathered together to discuss the status of the CHASE-CI roll-out of FIONA8-based Machine Learning (ML) systems, best practices for development with Kubernetes, and the status of their ML and AI research projects, among their peers.

The CineGrid Spotlight: AI event on Tuesday, May 15th, featured presentations and panels from technical leaders in the Media and Entertainment (M&E) community, highlighting the use of AI/ML in optimizing global special effects content creation pipelines; broadcast sports; film restoration and new proposed architectures for content-centric networks. CineGrid Spotlight attendees arrived on May 14th and had the opportunity to sit in on the afternoon CHASE-CI workshop sessions. They learned more about the various ML-enhanced CHASE-CI scientific research projects underway, and attended the evening wine & cheese reception – featuring demonstrations in the 500 Megapixel 70-GPU walk-in virtual environment called the SunCAVE.

As part of the CineGrid 2.0 initiative, another objective of this CineGrid Spotlight: AI event, is to identify the key AI/ML research areas, where CineGrid members would add significant value and foster collaborative research projects among the science, data science and creative media communities.
