Cal-(IT) 2 – The Impact on San Diego and the High Tech Coast Invited Talk for the University of The Third Age University of San Diego San Diego, CA January 24, 2001 By Larry Smarr, Director, Cal-(IT) 2
The Emerging Concept of an Information Power Grid
Wireless Access--Anywhere, Anytime Broadband to the Home and Small Businesses Vast Increase in Internet End Points –Embedded Processors –Sensors and Actuators –Information Appliances Highly Parallel Light Waves Through Fiber Emergence of a Planetary Computer The all optical fibersphere in the center finds its complement in the wireless ethersphere on the edge of the network. --George Gilder The Emerging Information Power Grid A Mobile Internet Powered by a Planetary Computer
The Internet is Poised to Move Throughout the Physical World Radio (1940s) Internet (1990s)
UC San Diego and UC Irvine California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology 220 Faculty and Senior Researchers New Funding Model (4 Years) –State $100M –Industry $140M –Private $30 M –Campus $30M –Federal $100-200M –Total $400-500M One of Three Awarded www.calit2.net
