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.


Symposium on Accelerating Science: A Grand Challenge for AI

November 14th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, robotics / by Helen Wright

The Computing Community Consoritum (CCC) is co-sponsoring with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) one of several symposia in the AAAI 2016 Fall Symposium series on November 17-19, 2016 in Arlington, Virginia. 

The Symposium on Accelerating Science: A Grand Challenge for AI aims to bring together researchers in relevant areas of artificial intelligence (e.g., machine learning, causal inference, knowledge representation and inference, planning, decision making), high performance data and computing infrastructures and services, and selected application areas (e.g., life sciences, learning sciences, health sciences, social sciences, food energy and water nexus) to discuss progress on, and articulate a research agenda aimed at addressing, the AI grand challenge of accelerating science.

Learn more and see the agenda here. Register for the full series here. The event will be live streamed starting at 9:00AM ET on Thursday, November 17th.
