    Selecting or even designing a computer architecture is at best as much a black art as a science. The problem is particularly difficult when one tries to choose an architecture meant to serve a very broad range of users whose present and future requirements are poorly understood. This article describes the activities of a joint Army/Navy Selection Committee, which was charged with the task of selec... View full abstract»
