Ongoing CCC Activities

In the chart below you can check the status of ongoing white papers, reports, and workshops.

Title Status

Intelligent Infrastructure White Paper Series

In March, 2017, the CCC released a series of white papers surrounding intelligent infrastructure in collaboration with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA). In May, we published the A Rural Lens on a Research Agenda for Intelligent Infrastructure white paper and in June released the Privacy in Information-Rich Intelligent Infrastructure and Smart Wireless Communication is the Cornerstone of Smart Infrastructures.
Sociotechnical Cybersecurity Workshop Series The first workshop was held December 12th-13th at the University of Maryland. The second workshop took place August 8-9, 2017 at the University of California, San Diego. The workshop report is in progress.
Leadership in Science Policy Institute  The CCC held the Leadership in Science Policy Institute (LiSPI) on November 6th and 7th in Washington, D.C. LiSPI attendance is by nomination only, please visit the eligibility page for more information and submit nominations here.

Cyber Security for Manufacturers Workshop

In March, 2017, the CCC co-sponsoried this workshop with MForesight: The Alliance for Manufacturing Foresight in Arlington, Virginia. In April, the CCC and MForesight gave a Congressional Briefing on the workshop and its outcomes and in September MForesight and the CCC held a launch event for the workshop report on Capitol Hill.
Cyber Social Learning Systems Workshop Series The CCC held Workshop #1 of this series on August, 2016 in Seattle, WA. Workshop #2 took place in Ann Arbor, MI in November, 2016, and Workshop #3 was January 24-25, 2017 in Washington, D.C. A workshop report is in progress.
AI Task Force Task force member Maja Matarić spoke at the AAAS 2017 panel on Assistive and Rehabilitative Robotics and gave a flash talk on Socially Assistive Robots.

The task force recently released the Advances in Artificial Intelligence Require Progress Across all of Computer Science white paper. Other recent activity includes the Next Generation Robotics report and AI for Social Good workshop report.

Privacy and Fairness Task Force This task force recently released the Privacy-Preserving Data Analysis for the Federal Statistical Agencies and Big Data, Data Science, and Civil Rights white papers. View the other resources curated by this task force on their webpage.
Post Moore’s Law Computing Task Force The Post Moore’s Law Computing task force leads activities to address the future of computing as we reach the limit of Moore’s Law – the observable trend that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention. In order to move past the era of Moore’s law, new computational tools and systems must be developed. View the resources curated by this task force on their webpage.
