Cyber-enabledDiscovery and Innovation (CDI)
Enhancing American competitiveness by enabling
discovery and innovation through the use of computational thinking
Improving our ability to gather, organize, analyze, model, and visualize large, multi-scale, heterogeneous data
Identifying general principles and laws that characterize complexity and capture the essence of complex systems is one of the major challenges of 21st century science.
Attaining the breakthroughs to overcome these challenges requires transformative ideas in the following areas:
Creating systematic knowledge about the interwined social and technical issues of effective VOs.
Advances in VOs bring together domain needs with computational thinking, including algorithm development, systems operations, organizational studies, social computing, and interactive design.
(NB: Generally speaking, for-profit entities and international partners must support their participation in CDI from other funding sources)
