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.

Intelligent Infrastructure for Smart Agriculture

July 11th, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, Research News, resources / by Helen Wright

Agriculture provides approximately 1 in 10 U.S. jobs and supports food and nutrition security as well as energy independence. However, U.S. global competitiveness is at risk because of accelerated investments by many other countries in agriculture, food, energy, and resource management. A renewed private-public effort is needed to build next-generation farm-infrastructures to stay competitive, protect and grow workforce, as well as manage risks of market and environmental shocks jeopardizing food, energy, and water security. So how do we start? Recently, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) in collaboration with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) released white papers describing a collective research agenda for intelligent infrastructure. We will be blogging about each paper over the […]

Nanotechnology-Inspired Information Processing Systems Workshop Report

February 13th, 2017 / in resources, workshop reports / by Khari Douglas

The organizing committee for the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) sponsored Nanotechnology-Inspired Information Processing Systems has released their workshop report. The workshop, held in September 2016, brought together over 40 leading researchers from the areas of computing, neuroscience, systems, architecture, integrated circuits, and nanoscience, to come up with new ideas for the future of information processing platforms on beyond-CMOS nanoscale technologies that can approach the energy efficiency and the decision‐making capacity of the human brain. The workshop report addresses the future of nanoscale process technologies within three application-driven platform-focused topic areas and discusses the current technologies, challenges, and research opportunities in each area. The topic areas are: cloud-based systems that provide software, platforms and infrastructure as […]

The Open Source Application Development Portal (OSADP) Adds More Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Applications for Download

November 8th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News, resources / by Helen Wright

The Open Source Application Development Portal (OSADP) is a web-based portal that provides access to and supports the collaboration, development, and use of open-source ITS-related applications. The OSADP has added a number of new ITS-related applications that are available free to the public. The following new applications are now available for download: Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) Hub takes in data from vehicles via Basic Safety Messages (BSM) and translates the data to a National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP) that infrastructure components can understand.  And vice versa. V2I Hub is a message handler that acts as a translator and data aggregator/disseminator for infrastructure components of a connected vehicle deployment. Dynamic […]

Thoughts from White House Frontier’s Conference and the National AI R&D Strategic Plan

October 18th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News, resources / by Helen Wright

This blog post was co-authored by CCC Staff, Greg Hager, Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Past Chair and Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, and Beth Mynatt, CCC Chair, Professor and Director of Georgia Tech’s Institute for People and Technology.  Last week the President hosted the White House Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh, an event that was co-hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University and attended by hundreds of scientific leaders in our community. The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Chair and Director attended the event, which had many speakers from previous CCC events. The Frontiers Conference presentations and panel discussions were inspiring and thought provoking. I came away impressed with […]

The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science Section 2 and Upcoming Events

October 17th, 2016 / in Announcements, resources / by Khari Douglas

Section 2 of The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science online lecture series, titled Data Representation Overview, starts October 28th with an overview from Anita Bandrowski, UCSD. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program run lecture series features experts from around the country presenting on a wide range of topics in data science.  This course is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science. The series began Friday, September 9th and will continue to run all year once per week from 12noon-1pm ET. Additionally registration is now open for the 2016 Open Data Science Symposium: How Open Data and Open Science are Transforming Biomedical Research. The symposium […]
