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.

35 Innovators Under the Age of 35

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

They recently published the list for 2017. Of the 35 innovators, 14 are working on problems related to computer science.

This list includes Suchi Saria from Johns Hopkins University, who was one of the presenters at the Computing Community Consortium’s (CCC) Artificial Intelligence For Social Good workshop in June 2016. Her talk Making ‘Meaningful Use’ more meaningful was about her research of putting existing medical data to work to predict sepsis risk.

Some of the other computer scientists include Ian Goodfellow, Google Brain, who invented a way for neural networks to get better by working together; Lorenz Meier, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, who created an open-source autopilot for drones; Franziska Roesner, University of Washington, who is preparing for the security and privacy threats that augmented reality might bring; Olga Russakovsky, Princeton University, who employed crowdsourcing to vastly improve computer-vision system; and Abdigani Diriye, Innovate Ventures and IBM Research Africa, who founded Somalia’s first incubator and startup accelerator.
