    new technology in front of the right people It would take an investment of 400 billion over a 10 year period to repair America s crumbling water infrastructure Sufficient data and advanced digital technologies can be deployed to detect and pinpoint breaks repair leaks test and purify water recycle and reclaim waste and conserve usage by an order of magnitude Here is a recent New York Times article of interest Water Is Broken Data Can Fix It Within the last 2 years I have seen a surge of innovation in the water industry as never before from start ups to mid sized companies to major players like GE and Cisco We now have the technology to modernize the system but the government needs to allocate the funds and that takes public support Without that we will continue to go crisis to crisis and can expect more disasters like what happened this year in Flint In the tradition of American ingenuity engineers scientists and innovators in the public and private sector are developing new digital analytic systems sensors and software that can revolutionize the water industry much like innovation has revolutionized energy efficiency and renewables phones electronics communications transportation healthcare and banking In an era when we are probing space for signs of water we are well served to also focus on what we need to survive here on Earth The water industry was slower to adopt new technologies because of its complex nature and the fact that the responsibility falls under every level of government none of which can call the shots By convening scientists engineers entrepreneurs software developers utility managers policy makers government leaders and CEOs for decades we are now finally coming out of the dark ages and entering the digital era hopefully in time to avoid catastrophe To be successful any approach to fixing America s complex water delivery system including wastewater reclamation must not only be comprehensive but informative In an election year when some candidates are on national television dismissing the critical role of the EPA and the Clean Water Act without which America s water would not be safe it is important to educate the public on why investment in our water infrastructure should be a priority Social media and advanced communication tools can play an important role in raising awareness among the general public and also in sharing data and best practices among water professionals in an urgent and timely manner Becky Scott of Cisco works to maximize the power of media technology for water related information transfer The situation in Flint for example was brought to the public eye because of a concentrated effort in social media by concerned members of the public and journalists she said And with a more connected water industry these situations could be unearthed and addressed before they become a crisis Today people can get instant data on all aspects of their lives including personal devices that can monitor every move and vital sign There is no

Individual Member The annual Individual Membership fee is 100 Let s make 2016 the year we change the numbers of our most undervalued resource NanoBCA Encourages Your Response to NNCO OSTP Request Posted on February 23rd 2016 in Uncategorized No Comments The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association NanoBCA encourages all members of the nanotechnology community to respond to this request from the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office NNCO and the Office of Science and Technology Policy OSTP The following information was presented on the White House blog by Michael Meador Director of the NNCO at the White House National Science and Technology Council and by Lloyd Whitman Assistant Director for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials at the White House OSTP Identifying Commercialization Success Stories from the National Nanotechnology Initiative By Michael Meador and Lloyd Whitman Twitter Facebook Email Summary The White House is seeking examples of commercialization success stories stemming from U S Government funded nanotechnology research and development Today the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office issued a Request for Information RFI seeking examples of commercialization success stories arising from Federal investments in nanotechnology research development since the inception of the National Nanotechnology Initiative NNI in 2001 Under the NNI the U S government has invested more than 22 billion in fundamental and applied research in nanotechnology the development of world class user facilities for fabrication characterization and modeling simulation of nanomaterials and the responsible development of nanotechnology The purpose of the RFI being released today is to gather information to better understand how these investments and resources have been utilized to successfully transition nanotechnology based products from the lab to the market In his 2014 State of the Union Address President Obama said Federally funded research helped lead to the ideas and inventions behind Google and smart phones and can unleash the next great American discovery whether it s vaccines that stay ahead of drug resistant bacteria or paper thin material that s stronger than steel Nanotechnology researchers and entrepreneurs are making these innovations plus many others a reality For example pioneering nanotechnology research by two 2015 National Medal of Science and one National Medal of Technology and Innovation recipients has found its way into multiple commercial products Quantum dots developed by Dr Armand Paul Alivisatos can now be found in energy efficient solid state lighting and high resolution video displays and televisions Novel nanofabrication techniques developed by Dr Joseph DeSimone are being put to work producing highly effective platforms for the controlled delivery of vaccines and therapeutics Fin FETs which are 3D nanometer scale transistors co invented by Dr Chenming Hu are used extensively in the latest computer chips And there are dozens of companies involved in creating products that take advantage of the incredible electrical and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene such as data cables that are up to 70 lighter than traditional copper cables and fibers that have more than 20 times the specific strength of steel While not every nanotechnology lab to market success can be recognized by the President we are sure that there are many exciting examples out there that we have yet to learn about And we suspect that many of these have been supported or helped along by Federal investments under the NNI Have you been involved in the successful commercialization of a nanotechnology enabled product Was this success aided by Federal funding through a research grant or contract collaboration with a scientist or engineer at a Federal lab access to one of the many nanotechnology user facilities or based in some way on intellectual property arising from Federally funded R D If so tell us your story by responding to today s RFI CLICK HERE to submit your examples of commercialization success stories stemming from U S Government funded nanotechnology research and development Michael Meador is the Director of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office at the White House

    a new type of computer that can proactively interpret and learn from data solve unfamiliar problems using what it has learned and operate with the energy efficiency of the human brain While it continues to be a national priority to advance conventional digital computing which has been the engine of the information technology revolution current technology falls far short of the human brain in terms of both the brain s sensing and problem solving abilities and its low power consumption Many experts predict that fundamental physical limitations will prevent transistor technology from ever matching these twin characteristics We are therefore challenging the nanotechnology and computer science communities to look beyond the decades old approach to computing based on the Von Neumann architecture as implemented with transistor based processors and chart a new path that will continue the rapid pace of innovation beyond the next decade There are growing problems facing the Nation that the new computing capabilities envisioned in this challenge might address from delivering individualized treatments for disease to allowing advanced robots to work safely alongside people to proactively identifying and blocking cyber intrusions To meet this challenge major breakthroughs are needed not only in the basic devices that store and process information and the amount of energy they require but in the way a computer analyzes images sounds and patterns interprets and learns from data and identifies and solves problems Many of these breakthroughs will require new kinds of nanoscale devices and materials integrated into three dimensional systems and may take a decade or more to achieve These nanotechnology innovations will have to be developed in close coordination with new computer architectures and will likely be informed by our growing understanding of the brain a remarkable fault tolerant system that consumes less power than an incandescent light bulb Recent progress in developing novel low power methods of sensing and computation including neuromorphic magneto electronic and analog systems combined with dramatic advances in neuroscience and cognitive sciences lead us to believe that this ambitious challenge is now within our reach The Federal government is driving many of these initial advances through programs such as Expeditions in Computing and Robust Intelligence at the National Science Foundation NSF Computational Cognition and Machine Intelligence Nanoscale Computing Devices and Systems DARPA SyNAPSE DARPA UPSIDE and DARPA STARnet a public private partnership with the Semiconductor Research Corporation at the Department of Defense and MICrONS at IARPA Some of the problems to be addressed by this grand challenge are highlighted in a recent report sponsored by the Semiconductor Industry Association and Semiconductor Research Corporation with support from NSF and white papers released today by the IEEE and the Computing Community Consortium Over the coming months Federal agencies professional societies industry groups and non profit organizations will be coming together in workshops and other forums to determine the best path forward to address this grand challenge with the first Department of Energy study group roundtable discussion planned for next week Information about agency activities and other
