Major trends in computer development since World War II are briefly surveyed. Microelectronics, artificial intelligence, and computer systems and architecture are identified as the principal disciplines that will lead to a new generation of machines. Also discussed are limitations of present systems, exploiting parallelism through VLSI and multiprocessor architectures, and the current piecemeal approach to speed.
