Abstract:
A recent National Research Council report (“Issues for Science and Engineering Researchers in the Digital Age”) stated:
"The exploding technology of computers and networks promises profound changes in the fabric of our world. As seekers of knowledge, researchers will be among those whose lives change the most… Researchers themselves will build this New World largely from the bottom up, by following their curiosity down the various paths of investigation that the new tools have opened. It is unexplored territory."
While we don’t know what this New World will look like, what is certain is that the best researchers will quickly find ways to mold and adapt the developing cyberinfrastructure to break new ground in addressing the most important questions in their fields. As a case study, I will describe two examples of how one university is participating in the development of this new world.
