Epilogue

Given the rapid pace of change in the computer industry today, it is clear that the details of the computer-related issues in this report will continue to evolve quickly. Advances made in algorithmic design will inexorably lead to scientific progress that will then bring other challenges to the forefront. The panel has thus attempted to articulate only general strategies that relate largely to machine-independent issues and that are based on today's scientific standard. The opportunities outlined in this report indicate possible future directions, each of which involves many intricacies that will become clear only as progress is made. Thus, any specific actions taken as a result of this document must be reviewed and adapted on a continual basis.
