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.

Every year the MIT Technology Review publishes a list of 35 innovators under the age of tech review

They recently published the list for 2015. Of the 35 innovators, 13 are working on problems related to computer science.

This list includes Travis Deyle who was a member of the Computing Community Consortium’s (CCC) CI Fellow program in 2011. He now works at the Google X research lab. He was part of the team that is working on glucose-measuring contact lenses.

Some of the other computer scientists include Yevgen Borodin, the CEO of Charmtech Labs, who is developing software to help the blind listen to online content; Zakir Durumeric, a PhD student at the University of Michigan, who has developed a quick process to help discover security flaws in machines connected to the internet; and Conor Walsh, a faculty member at Harvard and its Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, who is creating a lightweight, wearable exosuits that can augment and improve the wearers abilities.
