Indiana University: information-technology services built on a solid foundation of excellence.IN 1996, INDIANA UNIversity Indiana University, main campus at Bloomington; state supported; coeducational; chartered 1820 as a seminary, opened 1824. It became a college in 1828 and a university in 1838. The medical center (run jointly with Purdue Univ. announced the goal of becoming a national leader in absolute terms (Alg.) such as are known, or which do not contain the unknown quantity.
See also: Absolute in the creative use and application of information technology. Through much perseverance, innovation, and tremendous support from both the State of Indiana and its private sector partners, this goal has been attained.
This goal has been achieved through IT leadership in telecommunications and advanced networking, research computing, cyber-security as well as through strategic initiatives such as:
I-light, a fiber optic network connecting Indiana University Bloomington, IUPUI IUPUI Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (Indianapolis, IN, USA) , and Purdue University's West Lafayette West Lafayette, city (1990 pop. 25,907), Tippecanoe co., W Ind., a suburb of Lafayette, on the Wabash River; inc. 1924. A primarily residential city, it is the seat of Purdue Univ. campus to each other and to the national Internet2 infrastructure. The first fully operational network of its type, the I-light network supports highly advanced research applications and makes possible virtual, real-time collaborative workspaces for scientists and technologists. In addition, I-Light has made possible greater independence in telecommunications through decreased dependence on telecommunication providers, increasing networking capacity by many orders of magnitude and providing more than enough capacity to meet demand over the next 10 to 20 years.
The Indiana Genomics Initiative (INGEN), funded by IU's largest-ever grant of $105M from the Lilly Endowment Lilly Endowment Inc., headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana is one of the world's largest private philanthropic foundations and is among the ten largest such endowments in the United States.
The endowment was founded in 1937 by J. K. Lilly Sr. and his sons Eli and J. K. Jr. , is building upon IU's research capabilities to establish a major, national center in the life sciences. In collaboration with Indiana University's School of Medicine, the University's IT researchers and scientists have recently developed several new software applications, including software to study fetal alcohol syndrome fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), pattern of physical, developmental, and psychological abnormalities seen in babies born to mothers who consumed alcohol during pregnancy. , analyze genetic diseases in human family trees This is an index of family trees available. It includes noble, politically important and royal families as well as fictional families and thematic diagrams. Europe
Pervasive Technology Labs, established in partnership with the Lilly Endowment, was established to research the fundamental aspects of pervasive computing Refers to the use of computers in everyday life, including PDAs, smartphones and other mobile devices. It also refers to computers contained in commonplace objects such as cars and appliances and implies that people are unaware of their presence. that are helping to drive the 21st century information economy and to foster the growth of information technology in Indiana. Through technology transfer, commercialization of innovations produced in the labs, and joint research and development partnerships with government and industry, Pervasive Technology Labs is helping to create the high-wage information technology opportunities needed to retain our highly trained Indiana graduates and to attract new scientific talent to the State.
The School of Informatics Same as information technology and information systems. The term is more widely used in Europe. , the most recent school to be established at Indiana University, responds to the world's changing needs by exploring the impact of technology on society, developing new uses for technology, and seeking to understand the application of information technology in areas ranging from the arts and humanities to business to the life sciences. The School of Informatics, whose enrollment has steadily increased each year since its inception in 2000, offers five master's degree master's degree
An academic degree conferred by a college or university upon those who complete at least one year of prescribed study beyond the bachelor's degree.
Noun 1. programs in health informatics Health informatics or medical informatics is the intersection of information science, computer science and health care. It deals with the resources, devices and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of information in health and biomedicine. , bioinformatics, chemical informatics, human computer interaction, and media arts and science.
Like Indiana University itself, its information technology services, initiatives, and infrastructure are built on a solid foundation of excellence and go well beyond the principle goals of enabling inquiry and discovery. A comprehensive foundation of continually updated hardware, software and network connectivity serves the IU campuses. Teaching and learning centers support faculty instruction. A world-class research infrastructure supports inquiry and discovery. Enterprise information systems support academic and administrative applications. Indiana University's information technology resources and initiatives are helping to create in central Indiana a high-tech corridor linking Bloomington to Indianapolis and West Lafayette that will attract additional expertise and opportunity. With their investment in these initiatives, the University and its partners are helping to secure the economic future of the State, and positioning its citizens to fully participate in the emerging information economy.
