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.

June 8th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, Research News / by Helen Wright

Yesterday’s Computing Community Consortium (CCC), White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) co-sponsored public workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Social Good was tremendously successful! We had around 300 people in the room and over 3,500 viewers on the livestream.

The two keynote talk were from Lynn Overmann, Senior Policy Advisor at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Eric Horvitz, former CCC Council Member and Technical Fellow & Managing Director at Microsoft Research.

All slides can be found here, twitter conversation here, and the videos will be coming soon!
