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.

2017 Computing Research Symposium on Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs

November 2nd, 2017 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

CCC Chair Beth Mynatt has contributed to this blog. As computing has grown even more essential to day to day life, the capacity of computing research to effect societal change and address the needs of society has subsequently increased. In convening the Computing Research Symposium, our goal was to grow awareness and enthusiasm for the role that computing research plays in addressing timely and critical societal needs. How can we use artificial intelligence to amplify human abilities? How can intelligent infrastructure strengthen our communities? How do security and privacy promote democracy? How can big data and algorithms ensure fairness? To help answer these questions and more, we held the second […]

CCC Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs Symposium

October 12th, 2017 / in Announcements / by Khari Douglas

On October 23-24, 2017, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will hold the Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs Symposium in order to address the current and future contribution of computing and its role in addressing societal needs. The two days are organized around four main themes: Intelligent Infrastructure for our Cities and Communities: Intelligent infrastructure is already transforming our nation’s cities and communities, but the technological revolution is just now beginning. This session will highlight some of the major advances taking place now, while at the same time emphasizing the substantial body of research, much of it crossing disciplinary boundaries, that still needs to be done. Security and Privacy for Democracy:Computing research […]

Computing Community Consortium Symposium

October 2nd, 2017 / in Announcements / by Khari Douglas

Since its inception, the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) has hosted dozens of visioning workshops to envision, discuss, and catalyze the future of computing and its role in addressing societal needs. The Computing Research: Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs Symposium will draw these topics into a program designed to illuminate current and future trends in computing and the potential for computing to address national challenges. The two days are organized around four main themes: Intelligent Infrastructure for our Cities and Communities: Intelligent infrastructure is already transforming our nation’s cities and communities, but the technological revolution is just now beginning. This session will highlight some of the major advances taking place now, while at […]

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 […]

CCC Computing Research Symposium- Computing in the Physical World

July 21st, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The following is a guest blog post by CCC council member Klara Nahrstedt from the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign and past CCC council member Ross Whitaker from University of Utah.  ‘Computing in the physical world’ themes are emerging rapidly within our urban and rural areas. Cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things technologies, Big Data analytics algorithms, and new computing sustainability paradigms are being discussed across government, industry, foundations, and academia. This was also the purpose of discussions during the ½ day event, called “Computing in the Physical World” at the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Symposium on Addressing National Priorities and Societal Needs. The “Computing in the Physical World” event […]

CCC Computing Research Symposium- Life Long Learning (Education and Workforce)

July 20th, 2016 / in Announcements, CCC, Research News / by Helen Wright

The following is a guest blog by Vasant G Honavar, Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Member, Edward Frymoyer Endowed Professor of Information Sciences and Technology, Professor of Computer Science, and Director of the Center for Big Data Analytics and Discovery Informatics at the Pennsylvania State University. It has long been recognized that many routine or manual blue collar work has been, and will continue to be, automated. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report predicts widespread disruption not only to business models as well as labor markets, due to the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” unleashed in part, by the advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, among other fields. The […]
