Presidential Innovation Fellows, Sokwoo Rhee and Geoff Mulligan,
have convened a SmartAmerica Challenge to "bring together organizations with cyber-physical system technology and testbeds to demonstrate the potential to improve safety, sustainability, efficiency, mobility, and overall quality of life."

At the December 12, 2013 White House meeting,
we formed a healthcare-related challenge group called Closed-Loop Healthcare: From Home to Hospital to Home. The group comprises collaborators from academia, industry, and government.
The Closed-Loop Healthcare Group met for a hackathon in the MD PnP Lab on March 18-20, 2014, to work on a demonstration for the June 2014 SmartAmerica Challenge Expo.
