Advances in computer and information science and engineering are catalyzing a societal transformation. We are witnessing unprecedented growth of scientific and social data, deep integration of the cyber and physical worlds, wireless connectivity at broadband speeds and seamless access to resources in the "cloud." These advances are transforming the way we work, play, communicate, learn and discover. Investments in ambitious, long-term research and infrastructure, as well as in the development of a computing and information technology workforce, are national imperatives in this new era of data and information.

 

This talk will focus on technological advances and emerging frontiers that are shaping our future and accelerating the pace of discovery and innovation across all science and engineering disciplines. It will also describe how these trends inform the National Science Foundation’s priorities and programs. NSF’s efforts provide a foundation for economic competitiveness and will drive new innovations supporting our national priorities, such as sustainability, smart transportation, disaster resilience, education and life-long learning, public safety and national security.
