MRI/RUI: Acquisition of Instrumentation for Research in Genetic Programming, Quantum Computation, and Distributed Systems.
A project supported by the National Science Foundation.
Under this grant from the National Science Foundation (Major Research Instrumentation program and Research in Undergraduate Institutions program) Hampshire College will purchase a 16-node cluster computer system for use in student and faculty research. This computer cluster will enable advanced work in three areas: 1) genetic programming, 2) quantum computation, and 3) distributed systems. The computer cluster to be acquired is a research tool that is not typically found at the undergraduate level, and as such it will significantly benefit Hampshire's commitment to fostering undergraduate original research as a fundamental part of the liberal arts degree.
