Promoting Interactive Computing in Research and Education

A growing number of biomedical researchers and institutions depend on the availability of cloud-based technology to perform large-scale data analysis. While providers of cloud computing infrastructure exist, there is a significant gap in the availability of scalable cloud tools and technology designed primarily for researchers and deployable in academic institutions. 

The International Interactive Computing Collaboration (2i2c) is a non-profit organization established in 2020  with a mission to promote interactive computing in research and education through development, operations, and support for Jupyter and other related open source technology deployed in the cloud. CZI supports 2i2c’s mission with a $1.4 million, three-year grant that funds 2i2c to secure the sustainability and growth of Jupyter-based infrastructure for cloud computing. This includes their hiring of  an open source infrastructure engineer to  support several 2i2c pilot hubs for community colleges, universities, and research institutions, helping these organizations accomplish their missions through 2i2c infrastructure. Learn more about 2i2c’s mission.
