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.

CCC and MForesight Launch Event for Cybersecurity for Manufacturers Report

September 5th, 2017 / in Announcements, conference reports, policy, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The organizers from the MForesight and Computing Community Consortium (CCC) workshop on Cyber Security for Manufacturers will be releasing their workshop report at a Launch Event hosted by the House Manufacturing Caucus on September 22 from 2:00-3:30PM ET in the Rayburn House Office Building, in Washington, DC. The scale and variety of cyber-threats to manufacturers have grown considerably in recent years, and they now range from rare and sophisticated Stuxnet-style attacks to the relatively frequent ransomware risks. In addition to malware attacks on industrial firms, cyber-attacks on manufacturers can include efforts to corrupt data, steal intellectual property (IP), sabotage equipment, and disable networks. The purposes and effects of attacks vary widely — but all such incidents […]

Artificial Intelligence (AI) For Social Good

March 23rd, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, conference reports, research horizons, Research News, workshop reports / by Helen Wright

The organizing committee for the AI for Social Good Workshop has released their workshop report called Artificial Intelligence for Social Good. The Computing Community Consortium (CCC), along with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), co-sponsored this workshop in June 2016 in Washington, DC. This was one of five workshops that OSTP co-sponsored and held around the country to spur public dialogue on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and to identify challenges and opportunities related to AI. The workshop highlighted successful deployments of AI systems directed at addressing specific societal needs. Subsequent discussions explored broader questions as to […]

Arch2030: A Vision of Computer Architecture Research over the Next 15 Years

December 12th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, conference reports, Research News / by Helen Wright

The following blog post is by CCC Vice Chair and Executive Council member and University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Mark D. Hill and co-author of the report. In June 2016, I blogged about the successful Architecture 2030 Visioning Workshop, organized by Luis Ceze of the University of Washington and Thomas Wenisch of the University of Michigan, and partially sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) in conjunction with ISCA’16 in Seoul, South Korea. Recently CCC released the final report Arch2030: A Vision of Computer Architecture Research over the Next 15 Years with the endorsement of more forty research leaders in the field. Key findings are below. Progress on these is necessary to provide the cost-performance improvements that information technology creators and beneficiaries have come to depend […]

White House OSTP Report- Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence

October 12th, 2016 / in Announcements, conference reports, pipeline, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

This blog post was co-authored by CCC Staff and Greg Hager, Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Past Chair and Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, with contributions from Beth Mynatt, CCC Chair, Professor and Director of Georgia Tech’s Institute for People and Technology.  The Office of Science Technology Policy (OSTP) has just released a new report, “Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence.” In it, they examine the current state of Artificial Intelligence (AI) from both the society and public policy perspective and make 23 policy recommendations. The topics address by the report include: Applications of AI for Public Good AI and Regulation Research and Workforce Economic Impacts of AI Fairness, Safety, and […]

Computer-Aided Personalized Education Report

May 23rd, 2016 / in conference reports / by Khari Douglas

The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Computer-Aided Personalized Education has released their workshop report. The workshop, held in November 2015, brought together over 50 researchers in the fields of education, computer science, human-computer interaction, and cognitive psychology to address the challenges and future directions of computing-based educational tools. This growing agenda in computing research includes formalizing tasks such as assessment and feedback as computational problems, developing algorithmic tools to solve resulting problems at scale, and incorporating these tools effectively in learning environments. The report examines emerging trends, such as logical reasoning, machine learning, student-computer interaction, and learning science in order to come up with a research […]

Inclusive Access Workshop Report

April 19th, 2016 / in Announcements, conference reports / by Khari Douglas

The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Promoting Strategic Research on Inclusive Access to Rich Online Content and Services has released their workshop report. The workshop, held in September 2015, brought together almost 40 experts to address the challenges and future research opportunities about access to online content and services. They focused on six active research areas, automatic description of image and video content, online support for deaf people, access to textual content for people with language and learning disabilities, inclusive design of games and simulations, access to large quantitative datasets, maps and 3D printing, and software architecture for configurability. The participants found three main steps that need to be developed in order to […]
