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.

“What Will the Future Be Like?”

November 23rd, 2012 / in Uncategorized / by Ed Lazowska

This week’s episode of David Pogue’s PBS NOVA Science NOW explores the future that is being created by computer scientists:

“The technologies that will transform our lives decades from now are already taking shape in laboratories around the world.  David Pogue imagines what the Tech page of The New York Times might look like 10, 20, or 30 years from today, as he meets the innovative engineers and computer scientists working to create thought-controlled video games, robotic exoskeletons, and virtual reality that seamlessly integrates with the real world.”

The entire 52-minute episode is “must see TV”!  Check it out here.
