Pioneering the Future Advanced Computing Ecosystem: A Strategic Plan

A Report by the
SUBCOMMITTEE ON FUTURE ADVANCED COMPUTING ECOSYSTEM COMMITTEE ON TECHNOLOGY
of the
NATIONAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY COUNCIL

November 2020

The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) subcommittee on Future Advanced Computing Ecosystems just released a new report on Pioneering The Future Advanced Computing Ecosystem.

This strategic plan envisions a future advanced computing ecosystem that provides the foundation for continuing American leadership in science and engineering, economic competitiveness, and national security. It develops a whole-of-nation approach based on input from government, academia, nonprofits, and industry sectors, and builds on the objectives and recommendations of the "2019 National Strategic Computing Initiative Update: Pioneering the Future of Computing". This strategic plan also identifies agency roles and responsibilities and describes essential operational and coordination structures necessary to support and implement its objectives.

The plan outlines the following strategic objectives:

  • Utilize the future advanced computing ecosystem as a strategic resource spanning government, academia, nonprofits, and industry.
  • Establish an innovative, trusted, verified, usable, and sustainable software and data ecosystem.
  • Support foundational, applied, and translational research and development to drive the future of advanced computing and its applications.
  • Expand the diverse, capable, and flexible workforce that is critically needed to build and sustain the advanced computing ecosystem.

In addition, "the plan promotes and supports the availability, integrity, and security of critical advanced computing components in the international software and hardware supply chains."
