Computing Research News discusses PCAST NITRD report

Computing Research News discusses the recent assessment of the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program, carried out by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.  UW CSE’s Ed Lazowska co-chaired the Working Group that advised PCAST on the report.

“Backed by strong support from the White House, the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) released a biennial report about the status and direction of the nation’s 14-agency, $4.3 billion Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) program last month.  The report emphasized the critical role of advances in networking and information technology (NIT) to U.S. economic competitiveness, and called on the nation to ‘continue to innovate more rapidly and creatively than other countries in important areas of NIT’ in order to sustain and improve overall quality of life.”
