Vice Provost of Research announces a new PSC initiative

Dear Pitt Faculty,

I want to make you aware of a new initiative at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) for our faculty.  This could be a great opportunity for those faculty whose research includes High Performance Computing.

Earlier this year PSC completed a technical upgrade of Bridges, its unique high-performance computing (HPC) system. Bridges enables applications that have not traditionally used HPC, integrates HPC with Big Data and artificial intelligence, and helps researchers facing challenges in Big Data to work more intuitively.

PSC is now making Bridges available at no charge to CMU and Pitt faculty through a simple, easy process so you can discover how Bridges can facilitate your research.

To learn more on how Bridges can be a good fit for your research, and how to get started with this exciting new initiative go to

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. PSC provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research.
