Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Presidential Event on Innovation, Competitiveness This Morning

June 24th, 2011 / in policy / by Erwin Gianchandani

President Obama is scheduled to address the nation from the campus of Carnegie Mellon University at 11am EDT today. The President’s speech is expected to focus on American innovation and competitiveness:

The president will be highlighting the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy, as well as key steps that government, industry and universities will take together to create new industries and new jobs. He will deliver remarks on the need to focus on cross-cutting technologies that will enhance the global competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing and speed up ideas from the drawing board to the manufacturing floor.


The visit will take place at Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC), where he will see a range of cutting-edge technologies that have the potential to transform and assist the manufacturing sector, from crowd-sourced vehicles and next-generation robots, to modeling and simulation.

Watch the event live here. And for those who can’t make the live web stream, we’ll have a recap on this blog following the event.
