I could not tie the various threads together; from distributed data processing to building with storm water pipes. There has to be a focus on something with a plan.
The proposal is still very much a work in progress. The scope of the A2R challenge is broader than any Colab effort to date and to weave the many potential STEM, socioeconomic, policy threads together will be difficult. What you are reading, at this time, is more of a white board exercise in system of systems thinking.
Thanks for the note,
