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.

AAAI Fall Symposium Series- Cognitive Assistance in Government and Public Sector Applications

October 31st, 2017 / in Announcements, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) is pleased to present the 2017 Fall Symposium Series, to be held Thursday through Saturday, November 9-11, at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Virginia. One of the symposia is on Cognitive Assistance in Government and Public Sector Applications. Cognitive Assistance is an important focus area for AI. While it has several facets and still lacks a precise definition (one of the reasons for this Symposium!), it has been called Augmented Intelligence, the automation of knowledge work, intelligence amplification, cognitive prostheses, and cognitive analytics in the past. It is generally agreed that even while fully automated AI is still being developed, there […]

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 […]
