White House Releases Strategic Plan for NSCI Initiative

Posted on July 29, 2016

It’s been a year since President Obama issued an Executive Order to create the National Strategic Computing Initiative or NSCI.

NSCI was created to ensure the United States continues leading in the computing field over the coming decades. This week the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released the Strategic Plan for NSCI. Here are the five strategic objectives for government collaboration with industry and academia:

  • Accelerate the successful deployment and application of capable exascale computing
  • Ensure that new technologies support coherence in data analytics as well assimulation and modeling
  • Explore and accelerate new paths for future computing architectures and technologies, including digital computing and alternative computing paradigms
  • Holistically expand capabilities and capacity of a robust and enduring HPC ecosystem
  • Establish an enduring public-private collaboration to ensure shared benefit across government, academia, and industry

During FY 2016, agencies will implement the strategy through previously planned HPC research, development, and deployment activities. Agencies are also preparing for future activities that will support the principles and objectives of the NSCI. The President’s Budget for FY 2017 supports NSCI investments across the Federal Government, including key investments within DOE ($285 million) and NSF ($33 million).
