HiPEAC calls for ‘next Web’ moonshot programme and European computing institute
HiPEAC is calling for a moonshot programme to develop the next Web and a major European computing institute

The core consists of advanced orchestrators, which are called “Guardian Angels”, loyal to their users, placed at the interface of the physical and virtual world, to orchestrate in a safe and secure way the various services provided by the “next web”. The Gaia-X high performance computing programme would fit into this.

The report points out that Europe has many national competence centres with a leading international reputation in computing such as imec, CEA, CWI, Fraunhofer,etc but lacks sufficient international competence centres such as CERN for physics or the ESA for space research which is facing a major shakeup.

HiPEAC recommends the creation of such a well-funded European competence centre in computing so that Europe is able to retain and attract top talent, to set its own ambitious research agenda, to attract large investments, and to form the core of a network of regional competence centres. Such a network will be crucial for defending Europe’s position as a scientific powerhouse. It will also the entry point of an innovation pipeline, and there are moves to drive this already in Slovakia for AI and machine learning.

The recommendations in its 2021 vision report are complex, covering Cognitive Cyber and Predictive Physical System of Systems (CCPPSS) or CPS2. A second set of recommendations cover key non-functional requirements: Sober, Secure, Safe, Straightforward and Sustainable (5S).
