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.

AmStatNews highlights CCC as Influential to the Research Community!

logoA post this week in AmStatNews, the membership magazine of the American Statistical Association, is a ringing endorsement of CCC’s activities:

“On the topic of Big Data and the statistical science community’s contention that the federal policymakers should be engaging statisticians more (yielding better science), one counterpart quipped that computer scientists have dominated the Big Data landscape for two reasons: their sheer numbers and the white papers generated from the Computing Research Association (CRA) Computing Community Consortium (CCC)

“Indeed, it didn’t take much digging to see the influence of CCC white papers. For example, a set of slides posted to the CRA website shows the progression from the publishing of a May 2009 CCC report, ‘From Internet to Robotics: A Roadmap for U.S. Robotics,’ to a 2010 OSTP directive to all agencies to include robotics in fiscal year 2012 (FY12) budgets to the announcement of the National Robotics Initiative in 2011. The next slide shows a similar progression for the OSTP Big Data, starting with a ‘series of white papers prepared in fall 2010 relating data mining, machine learning, predictive modeling, etc., to national challenges.'”
