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.

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 […]

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 […]

White House OSTP Request for Information on Artificial Intelligence

June 28th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, policy, research horizons, Research News, robotics / by Helen Wright

The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) just released a Request For Information (RFI) on Artificial Intelligence. Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies offer great promise for creating new and innovative products, growing the economy, and advancing national priorities in areas such as education, mental and physical health, addressing climate change, and more. Like any transformative technology, however, AI carries risks and presents complex policy challenges along a number of different fronts. The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is interested in developing a view of AI across all sectors for the purpose of recommending directions for research and determining challenges and opportunities in this field. The views of the […]
