    About the title: in the early days of the computer industry acronyms seemed to pop up everywhere. Their disappearance in these days of emphasis on corporate image is lamentable. This paper uses an acronym, a familiar set of letters, not only to pay tribute to tradition but because "SOS" has the right sound and sets the right mood. Thoughts about the future are speculative, and any speculation is a... View full abstract»

    When I talk about a subject like this one, I find myself discussing a world in which one hand is filled with ill-defined problems while the other hand overflows with solutions in search of a problem, a world in which the only thing wrong with a solution is the problems it creates. It is this world I want to talk about, not whether we can build electronic note pads, read our newspaper on a video sc... View full abstract»

    When the IEEE Computer Society was founded twentyfive years ago, the transistor was a laboratory curiosity, and operating computers were assembled from relays or vacuum tubes. Today, a single integrated circuit far surpasses the capability of those early computers, and further progress seems inevitable. The development of semiconductor devices has depended upon a synergism with computers. This is ... View full abstract»

    Twenty-five years ago computers were a collection of boxes in a room, with input, output, memory, and central processor. Programs could be stored and manipulated just like data. Although computers in those days were used mostly for numerical calculations, it was clear that the sorting functions could be used for non-numerical applications. The notion of higher-level languages was around. Some of t... View full abstract»

    Computer hardware has evolved from huge machines requiring rooms full of equipment and highly skilled operators to computers on a chip that are accessible to an ever-increasing circle of users. Below, photos of ENIAC and Intel's newest single board computer (held by one of its youngest users) suggest the extent of that evolution. View full abstract»
