  • Information Technology Research: Investing in Our FutureFebruary 1999
    • Findings and Recommendations
    • Priorities for Research
    • The Government’s Essential Role
    • Recommended Funding Increases

information technology transforming our society
Information Technology: Transforming our Society
  • Advances in computing and communications have transformed our society in many ways.
  • The rational for funding long-term research goes beyond economic benefit and national security to societal gains involving “transformations.”

ADEC 2001

ten critical national challenge transformations which affect the way we
Ten Critical National Challenge Transformations which affect the way we:
  • Communicate,
  • Deal with information,
  • Learn,
  • Practice health care,
  • Conduct commerce,
  • Work,
  • Design and build things,
  • Perform research,
  • Understand the environment, and
  • Govern

Transformations which affect the way we: Perform Research

Challenge: Research problems have become more complex and interdisciplinary; innovative ways to collaborate are needed.

Vision: Research is conducted in virtual laboratories in which scientists and engineers can routinely perform their work without regard to physical location - interacting with colleagues, accessing instrumentation, sharing data and computational resources, and accessing information in digital libraries.

All scientific and technical journals are available on line, allowing readers to download equations and databases and manipulate variables to interactively explore the published research.

ADEC 2001

pitac findings and recommendations
PITAC Findings and Recommendations
  • Federal information technology R&D investment is dangerously inadequate
  • Federal information technology R&D is too heavily focused on near-term problems
  • Recommendation: Create a strategic initiative in long-term information technology R&D
