In a recent article on the website, National Science Foundation, the announcement of a $13 million award was discussed. These awards will aid the advancement of cyber-physical systems. These systems are geared toward the integration of computational and physical pieces that improve output, efficiencies and the quality of life. Researchers in in technical fields like engineering will partner with counterparts in fields such as urban planning and music to find solutions too many of society’s problems. How do you thing people form differing backgrounds will work together? What type of solutions do you think they will find? How will society benefit from this integration?
