As researchers become more reliant on the use of big data and sophisticated computing techniques such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, the demand for experts who can wield these tools effectively has grown considerably.
Large-scale computers - so-called cluster machines formed from thousands of computers behaving as one - have become increasingly critical to numerous fields of research in the last several years. The complexity of the machines makes them difficult to use efficiently, so for assistance in using them, scientists often work with a research computing facilitator (RCF).
