Strategies for development of fifth-generation computers in Japan, the United States, and Western Europe are compared and contrasted briefly in a short introductory article. Individual approaches are then explored in depth in a series of short articles. The discussion covers the activities of Japan's Institute for New Generation Computer Technology (ICOT); the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's new Strategic Computing and Survivability (SPS) program, the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corp. (MCC), and university-industry-government joint research, all in the United States; and efforts by Great Britain and the European Common Market.
