Our colleague, Erwin Gianchandani, has written a great piece on the President’s announcement on robotics and advanced manufacturing over at the CCC blog.

More recently the CRA Government Affairs program has enhanced its efforts to help the members of the computing research community contribute to the public debate knowledgeably and effectively.
