ABSTRACT:
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 workforce empowered by computation and data, enable these advances and are a national imperative. This talk will focus on the technological advances and emerging trends 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 priorities and programs at National Science Foundation.
