A Special 30-Minute Briefing by Robert E. Kahn, President & CEO, Corporation for National Research Initiatives

The Computer Science Technical Reports Project and the Digital Object Architecture
The Digital Object Architecture originated from work done at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) on mobile programs in the 1980s, and represents the architecture without mobility. In addition, some of the security notions inherent in the architecture trace their origins to the work on wireless networking (this was a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA] project known as packet radio in the 1970s). Another DARPA supported effort to digitize, archive and make accessible computer science technical reports (CSTR) from several leading universities in the early 1990s resulted in the formulation of the Digital Object Architecture and the implementation of its components. This project, known by its acronym CSTR, pioneered the work in digital libraries in the United States. In the talk, the work in the CSTR will be reviewed briefly along with the progress achieved in evolving and implementing the Digital Object Architecture.

Robert E. Kahn is Chairman, CEO and President of CNRI, which he founded in 1986 after a 13 year term at the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). CNRI was created as a not-for-profit organization to provide leadership and funding for research and development of the National Information Infrastructure. Dr. Kahn is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences, and he is a member of the State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Communications and Information Policy.

The New ABCs of Research: Achieving Breakthrough Collaborations


Solving the immense problems of the 21st century will require ambitious research teams that are skilled at producing practical solutions and foundational theories simultaneously – that is the ABC Principle: Applied & Basic Combined. Then these research teams can deliver high-impact outcomes by applying the SED Principle: Blend Science, Engineering and Design Thinking, which encourages use of the methods from all three disciplines. These guiding principles (ABC & SED) are meant to replace Vannevar Bush’s flawed linear model from 1945 that has misled researchers for 70+ years. These new guiding principles will enable students, researchers, academic leaders, and government policy makers to accelerate discovery and innovation.

Ben Shneiderman is a Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science, Founding Director (1983-2000) of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory, and a Member of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). He is a Fellow of the AAAS, ACM, IEEE, and NAI, and a Member of the National Academy of Engineering. His contributions include the direct manipulation concept, clickable highlighted web-links, touchscreen keyboards, dynamic query sliders for Spotfire, development of treemaps, novel network visualizations for NodeXL, and temporal event sequence analysis for electronic health records.
