Title Status

Fair Representations and Fair Interactive Learning Workshop

The CCC held a workshop on fair interactive learning in Philadelphia, PA on March 18-19, 2018. A second workshop is being planned – more information to come soon.
Sociotechnical Interventions for Health Disparity Reduction: A Research Agenda The CCC is co-hosted a workshop on sociotechnical interventions for health disparity reduction with the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM). It will be co-located with SBM Annual Meeting, April 9-10 in New Orleans, Louisiana. A workshop report is in progress.
Robotic Materials Workshop The CCC hosted this April 23-24 workshop to explore materials used in the development of robotic components. A workshop report is in progress.
Digital Computing Beyond Moore’s Law On May 3-4 in San Francisco, the CCC ran a workshop to discuss and analyze how digital computing paradigms can overcome the limitations of Moore’s Law. A workshop report is in progress.
Next Steps in Quantum Computing: Computer Science’s Role  The Next Steps in Quantum Computing workshop took place in Washington DC, May 22-23, with aims to bridge the gap between quantum computing experts and experts in other fields of computer science. A workshop report is in progress.
Early Career Researcher Symposium As a capstone event for the CIFellows program, the CCC will held a workshop August 1-2, that brought together former CIFellows, Postdoctoral Students, and Early Career Researchers in computing to provide them advice at this juncture of their career, enable them to network with other people at similar stages of their career, and discuss emergent research visions and topics with luminaries in the field.
Leadership in Embedded Security Workshop The Cybersecurity Taskforce of the CCC held a leadership workshop to envision the future of embedded security research and education from hardware to cyberphysical systems to human factors, co-located with the 27th USENIX Security Symposium. 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.

Intelligent Infrastructure Task Force  In 2017, the CCC released a series of white papers surrounding intelligent infrastructure in collaboration with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA). View the Intelligent Infrastructure white paper series here and check out the other resources curated by this task force on their webpage.
Privacy and Fairness Task Force This task force addresses the important domains of privacy and fairness in an interconnected and big-data driven world. The task force recently held a workshop on Fair Representations and Fair Interactive Learning. A workshop report is in progress. 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. In order to move past the era of Moore’s law, new computational tools and systems must be developed. This task force recently held a workshop on Digital Computing Beyond Moore’s Law and will hold a workshop May 22-23 on Quantum Computing.
