Information Technology at NASA: Accepting the Challenge of Excellence

Kenneth Ford
NASA Ames Research Center


Humans are quintessentially explorers and makers of things. These traits, which identify us as a species and account for our survival, are reflected with particular clarity in the mission and methods of space exploration. This is an exciting time to be a computer scientist at NASA -- our work is at the crossroads of these two human traits -- we are making computational machines to extend human reach further than ever before. GenevaIn this talk, I will describe the current and future research directions of NASA's expanding information techology effort.
