Turning the TIDE in AI Education

AI adoption throughout business is an “inevitability” as described by Boston Consulting Group Managing Director Nate Beyor in our page 1 story this week previewing the upcoming panel discussion on “The Impact of GenAI on Your Business Strategy” – a special event hosted by BCG and the San Diego Business Journal. Because of this inevitability, programs teaching AI have been a focus of local colleges and universities. One such program was recently recognized by the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).

CENIC awarded its 2024 Innovations in Networking Award for Equitable Access to Cyberinfrastructure to the Technology Infrastructure for Data Exploration (TIDE) Project – a partnership between San Diego State University and the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego. The program also extends CENIC AI Resource (CENIC AIR) – California’s portion of the National Research Platform, which provides education communities nationwide a common platform to collaborate on developing data infrastructure – to CSU San Bernardino, Cal Poly Humboldt and CSU Stanislaus.

“Artificial intelligence/machine learning is primarily an experiential science – one learns by doing – and CENIC-AIR is a great launching pad for faculty and students all over California,” explained Tom DeFanti, principal investigator at UC San Diego and CENIC. “Just as SDSU is doing, CENIC-connected campuses can also host on-premises compute and data nodes that become part of CENIC-AIR, taking advantage of the NRP’s node administration and CENIC’s advanced network services and expertise.”

The TIDE Project was initially spearheaded by Salk Institute Chief Information Officer Jerry Sheehan, during his time as CIO at SDSU. TIDE’s cyberinfrastructure is supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation and is interconnected and accessed through the CENIC network.

San Diego Supercomputer Center Director Frank Würthwein said the center’s work with SDSU and the CSU system is “just the beginning” and the goal is “to build on it with AI training programs like the CIP Fellows Award and replicate it nationwide by working with CENIC’s peers across the U.S.”


The San Diego Association of Realtors and the Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors last week received a joint $1.16 million grant from the Realtors Relief Foundation, an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors. The grant will go toward helping homeowners repair flood damages caused by heavy storms earlier this year.

RFF is a nonprofit founded in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that aids communities impacted by disasters. The grant required a disaster declaration from the White House, which President Biden issued in mid-February.

The two realtor groups are currently developing an application and review process for the up to $2,900 RRF grants. More information can be found at and
