Register by July 31 for "Wait, What? A Future Technology Forum." To register, visit: www.darpawaitwhat.com/.   

Join DARPA in St. Louis September 9th to 11th to discuss the technologies that could shape the future, engage with scientists and engineers working to turn them into reality, and consider their widespread implications. Presentations and demonstrations will include new ways to meld minds and machines, tame atoms and photons in real time, program microbes and more with synthetic DNA, use topology to make sense of big data, and many other topics. DARPA's goal is to engage and connect scientists and technologists not just in one field, as at most meetings, but across many fast-moving fields to blend ideas and to inspire the attendees to focus their considerable talents on some of our nation's most pressing challenges.

"NIJ created the Ultra-High Speed (UHS) Application Challenge to encourage software developers and public safety professionals to take advantage of public domain data and UHS bandwidth systems with apps that significantly improve criminal justice or public safety services and operations. Currently, most app developers optimize their software for slower and lower capacity networks. The prospect of UHS networks capable of transferring large amounts of data more quickly and reliably creates new opportunities for developers.
The challenge was created with guidance from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and US Ignite.
The challenge was held in two phases. NIJ selected five of 15 Phase I proposals to participate in Phase II, which involved developing a working prototype of the app. NIJ selected three winning entries from Phase II to share the prize of $150,000."

America is the first country to reach Pluto, and this is the closest image we've ever seen. It took a decade to fly our New Horizons spacecraft through the solar system to send back this love note from the dwarf planet. Congrats on a successful ‪#‎PlutoFlyBy‬, +NASA: www.nasa.gov/newhorizons

"Future Biotech, Future Law" and "New Trajectories in Space" are just two of the breakout panels for discussion at DARPA's "Wait, What? A Future Technology Forum." What else does the future have in store? Check out http://www.darpawaitwhat.com/ for more information on speakers, panels and demonstrations, and register to attend by July 31.

There is no such thing as simplicity in biology, and the boom in collection of genomic data is making that clear, as evidenced by a story from IEEE Spectrum and a recent talk at DARPA's "Biology is Technology" symposium by Dr. Joel Dudley from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai: https://youtu.be/2T05fEIyx8k. To harness the promise of genomic data, scientists must first find reliable ways of logging, storing, sharing and analyzing it.
As many as two billion human genomes will be sequenced by 2025

Introduction

The NITRD Program provides a framework in which many Federal agencies come together to coordinate their networking and information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) efforts.

The Program operates under the aegis of the NITRD Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's (NSTC) Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee, made up of representatives from each of NITRD's member agencies, provides overall coordination for NITRD activities.

Federal IT R&D, which launched and fueled the digital revolution, continues to drive innovation in scientific research, national security, communication, and commerce to sustain U.S. technological leadership. The NITRD agencies' collaborative efforts increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of these Federal R&D investments, leveraging strengths, avoiding duplication, and increasing interoperability of R&D products.

The NITRD Program has its focus on the following research areas:

Bragging rights
Big Data (BD), Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA), Health Information Technology Research and Development (Health IT R&D), Human Computer Interaction and Information Management (HCI&IM), High Confidence Software and Systems (HCSS), High End Computing (HEC) Large Scale Networking (LSN), Software Design and Productivity (SDP), Social, Economic, and Workforce Implications of IT and IT Workforce Development (SEW), Wireless Spectrum Research and Development (WSRD)
