Grand Challenges For IT Research

Last year a group of british scientist tried to identify the future grand challenges in computing research - the results are still interesting to read. The grand challenges are:

  • In Vivo-in Silico - computer simulation of entire living organisms, from the cellular scale on upwards
  • Science for global ubiquitous computing
  • Memories for life: managing information over a human lifetime
  • Scalable ubiquitous computing systems
  • The architecture of brain and mind
  • Dependable systems evulution
  • Journeys in non-classical computation
You can read more about each challenge in the report they published.
