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.

The organizing committee for the Research Interfaces between Brain Science and Computer Science (BRAIN) have released their workshop report. This two-day workshop, sponsored by the Computing Community Consortium (CCC), brought together brain researchers and computer scientists for a scientific dialogue aimed at exposing new opportunities for joint research in the many exciting facets, established and new, of the interface between the two fields. Videos of the workshop presentations as well as the presentation slides are posted on the workshop website in the agenda. The reports suggests that the study of computing and the study of the brain interrelate in three ways, each suggesting a major research direction. First, the experimental study of brain architecture […]
