Report calls for an end to attempting to build the fastest supercomputer and instead spending money on health IT, cybersecurity, energy- and transportation-related IT, large database data analytics coupled with privacy protections, social computing, and computer-enhanced interaction with the physical world.

InformationWeek: The President's advisory panel on science and technology has issued a 104-page report calling for $1 billion in new spending on IT research projects. Much of the report focuses on supercomputing. It urges the U.S. to get out of the "arms race" over who can build the fastest supercomputer and instead focus on supercomputing innovations like novel system architectures, high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnections and reliability in massively parallel systems.

The panel also calls for more research into health IT, cybersecurity, energy- and transportation-related IT, large database data analytics coupled with privacy protections, social computing, and computer-enhanced interaction with the physical world.
