Economics and Fairness

The Computing Community Consortium's (CCC) Fairness and Accountability Task Force will hold a visioning workshop on Economics and Fairness, May 22-23, 2019 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This workshop will bring together computer science researchers with backgrounds in algorithmic decision making, machine learning, and data science with policy makers, legal experts, economists, and business leaders to discuss methods to ensure economic fairness in a data-driven world.

Code 8.7: Using Computation Science and AI to End Modern Slavery

Code 8.7 is a two-day conference that brings the computational research and artificial intelligence (AI) communities together with those working to achieve Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. With Target 8.7, 193 countries agreed to take immediate and effective measures to end forced labour, modern slavery and human trafficking by 2030, and the worst forms of child labour by 2025. Computational science, AI and machine learning can accelerate our understanding of these problems and help us determine “effective measures” to address them. The featured image was made by Ira Gelb.

Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Workshop 3 – Self Aware Learning

Given the increasingly pervasive use in AI technologies in all sectors of industry and government and the enormous potential for future AI-based technologies, NSF has asked the Computing Community Consortium to organize an AI Roadmap to help prioritize research investments. The third workshop theme is Learning and Robotics and will take place on January 17-18, 2019 in San Francisco. The chairs of the Self Aware Learning workshop are Fei-Fei Li (Stanford University) and Thomas G. Dietterich (Oregon State University). This is part of the AI Roadmap workshop series – view the series page here.

Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Workshop 2 – Interaction

Given the increasingly pervasive use in AI technologies in all sectors of industry and government, and the enormous potential for future AI-based technologies, NSF has asked the Computing Community Consortium to organize an AI Roadmap to help prioritize research investments. The second workshop theme is interaction and will take place on November 14-15, 2018 in Chicago. The chairs of the interaction workshop are Kathy McKeown (Columbia University) and Dan Weld (University of Washington). This is part of the AI Roadmap workshop series – view the series page here.

Content Generation for Workforce Training

The CCC will hold a visioning workshop in Atlanta, GA in March 2018 to discuss and articulate research visions for authoring rich graphical content for new workforce training. The workshop aims to articulate research challenges and needs and to summarize the current state of the practice in this area.

Artificial Intelligence Roadmap Workshop 1 – Integrated Intelligence

Given the increasingly pervasive use in AI technologies in all sectors of industry and government, and the enormous potential for future AI-based technologies, NSF has asked the Computing Community Consortium to organize an AI Roadmap to help prioritize research investments. The first workshop theme is Integrated Intelligence and will take place on November 14-15, 2018 in Chicago. The chairs of the Integrated Intelligence workshop are Marie desJardins (Simmons University) and Ken Forbus (Northwestern University). This is part of the AI Roadmap workshop series – view the series page here.

Thermodynamic Computing

Thermodynamics has been a historical concern in the engineering of conventional computing systems due to its role in power consumption, scaling, and device performance. Today, we see thermodynamics re-emerging in a new role as an algorithmic technique in areas such as machine learning, annealing, quantum, and neuromorphic systems. Recent theoretical developments in non-equilibrium thermodynamics suggest thermodynamics may become the basis of a new “thermodynamic computing” paradigm. For example, it may lead to computing systems that self-organize in response to external input.

A Roadmap for US Robotics

Over the last two decades, the internet has—in many ways—transformed our daily lives from work routines to social networking. The internet is an impressive media for interconnecting computers. However, almost all these computers are passive devices with no or very limited facilities for interaction with the physical world. Robots—on the other hard—are devices designed to interact intelligently with the environment. Over the next decade or two the prediction is that robotics will impact our daily lives in manners that, at least, matches the way the internet has impacted our life.

Early Career Researcher Symposium

The workshop was 1.5 days in the Washington, DC area. It was an opportunity for attendees to meet National Science Foundation program officers as well as representatives from other agencies. The content covered at the workshop came from the 2017 CCC Symposium, recent CCC visioning workshops, and CRA programs for Career Mentoring and Leadership in Science Policy.
