The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
FASTER Community of Practice: "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.
Dr. Vinton G. Cerf
Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist
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.
