FASTER CoP: "Digital Vellum and Archives" - Dr. Vint Cerf

On August 12, 2016, NITRD FASTER Community of Practice hosted Dr. Vinton G. Cerf who shared his perspectives regarding the Digital Vellum and the challenge of long-term preservation of digital information semantics.

"Digital Vellum and Archives" - Dr. Vint Cerf - https://www.nitrd.gov/nitrdgroups/index.php?title=DigitalVellumAndArchives

Abstract: "We digitize our images and sounds and texts in the expectation that this somehow provides these objects with immortality. Sadly, we may, instead, be creating a digital dark age in which our descendants will know nothing of our history and the products of our society. The physical media for digital storage may degrade; the ability to read the stored bits may be lost; the ability to correctly interpret the bits and render them or execute them may be lost. Operating systems, hardware and applications may no longer work for a variety of reasons. Companies and their proprietary software may go out of business and their products not work on computers in the future. Virtual machines and cloud computing may have a role to play but legal regimes and business models will also determine whether long-term preservation is feasible."

The first-ever White House Open Data Summit (formerly called the White House Open Datapalooza) will take place on Wednesday, September 28, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The event will celebrate eight years of progress in transforming federal information from disconnected documents into open data. Special demonstrations will illuminate the impact of open data to encourage innovation and improve people’s lives in domains like energy, health care, and transportation. The Summit’s co-hosts will include the White House, the General Services Administration, and the Small Business Administration.

The White House Open Data Summit will be housed within the Data Foundation’s fourth annual open data policy conference, Data Transparency 2016. Alongside the Summit, Data Transparency 2016 will include additional tracks focusing on the benefits of open data in government finance and in regulation. Last year’s open data policy conference, Data Transparency 2015, attracted over 500 registrants and featured nearly fifty speakers. You’ll find a recap of Data Transparency 2015 here.

Admission will be free for government employees and discounted for nonprofits.

The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program is the Nation’s primary source of federally funded work on advanced information technologies (IT) in computing, networking, and software. The multiagency NITRD Program seeks to provide the research and development (R&D) foundations for assuring continued U.S. technological leadership and meeting the needs of the Federal Government for advanced information technologies. The NITRD Program also seeks to accelerate development and deployment of advanced information technologies in order to maintain world leadership in science and engineering, enhance national defense and national and homeland security, improve U.S. productivity and economic competitiveness, protect the environment, and improve the health, education, and quality of life of all Americans. More...

The annual Supplement to the President’s Budget for the NITRD Program provides a technical summary of the research activities planned and coordinated through NITRD in a given Federal budget cycle, as required by law.

For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities and the Science and Technology priorities of the Administration.
