Our engineers partner with researchers and students at universities worldwide to collaborate on research projects from AI to privacy to heterogenous hardware.

Prototyping a Distributed, Asynchronous Workflow for Iterative Near-Term Ecological Forecasting

To fuel the growth of the ecological forecasting community, there is a need to openly develop and deploy accessible, reusable, and scalable community cyberinfrastructure (CI) that can be broadly applied to make large numbers of ecological forecasts on a repeatable, frequent basis. This project underway at the Red Hat Collaboratory at Boston University prototypes the beginnings of such a system, focusing on developing a cloud-native workflow that can handle an asynchronous, event-driven, and distributed approach to execution.

Red Hat offers students a unique opportunity to gain real-life working experience working on Red Hat projects and products. Every Red Hat intern works on a project with a goal of getting code into open source, building experience and upstream credibility along the way.

Get Involved

Whether you’re an experienced coder or just starting out in open source, we have opportunities for you to get involved.

Red Hat Research Quarterly

Every quarter, we detail the latest projects we are working on,  interview a leader in open source code and cutting edge research, and more.
