Companies and institutions have a hidden secret. They are leading a Revolution in our Infrastructure. We want to help expose that secret to the world.
Tomorrow's infrastructure will blend traditional physical-infrastructure (transportation and transit systems, buildings, pipes, power grid, concrete and steel) with cyber-infrastructure (computers, networks and sensors) in ways that are just emerging. A wealth of companies, universities and institutions exist that are inventing many of these emerging technologies that will build or re-build the world's transportation, civil, manufacturing and other infrastructure. We will bring those organizations together to leverage and highlight this hidden secret.
These technologies will also need a new generation of employees to design, operate and maintain these new cyber-physical infrastructure systems. The SII would be an important step toward exposing this secret.
