This volume results from the first research conference organized by Computer Professional for Social Responsibility (CSPR). Each chapter is authored by a computer scientist addressing the social impact of computers. Four chapters describe the milieu in which computer science is managed and financed. Three chapters present software engineering analyses of cost reliability and safety and relate them to defence policy. Five chapters explore the implications of applying artificial intelligence technology in particular areas, from education to combat, and the final chapters confront present and future dilemmas from philosophical and ethical perspectives.

Allowing the distinction between the two activities to slide , in either direction , is badly misleading . ... He believes that the most important question is not what computers can do , but what they ought to do .

Advanced computing capabilities are used to tackle a rapidly growing range of challenging science and engineering problems, many of which are compute- and data-intensive as well. Demand for advanced computing has been growing for all types and capabilities of systems, from large numbers of single commodity nodes to jobs requiring thousands of cores; for systems with fast interconnects; for systems with excellent data handling and management; and for an increasingly diverse set of applications that includes data analytics as well as modeling and simulation. Since the advent of its supercomputing centers, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has provided its researchers with state-of-the-art computing systems. The growth of new models of computing, including cloud computing and publically available by privately held data repositories, opens up new possibilities for NSF. In order to better understand the expanding and diverse requirements of the science and engineering community and the importance of a new broader range of advanced computing infrastructure, the NSF requested that the National Research Council carry out a study examining anticipated priorities and associated tradeoffs for advanced computing. Future Directions for NSF Advanced Computing Infrastructure to Support U.S. Science and Engineering in 2017-2020 provides a framework for future decision-making about NSF's advanced computing strategy and programs. It offers recommendations aimed at achieving four broad goals: (1) position the U.S. for continued leadership in science and engineering, (2) ensure that resources meet community needs, (3) aid the scientific community in keeping up with the revolution in computing, and (4) sustain the infrastructure for advanced computing.
