    Natural languages, when regarded as codes for the transmission of information, are essentially structured like error-detecting or error-correcting codes. This principle has been used to write a program that, by random choice, is capable of constructing several billion different English sentences from a dictionary of less than a hundred unprocessed words. Applications to artificial intelligence and... View full abstract»

    IC testing has evolved from the patterns established some years ago in the production of semiconductors. Since manual testing cannot meet the complex needs indigenous to IC manufacture, highly sophisticated instruments and test systems have developed that are automatically programmed by computer, tape, or printed-circuit card. This article focuses on many of the problems encountered and techniques... View full abstract»

    Amid the tumultuous confusion and complexity of modern events, it is difficult to acquire the general historical perspective so important to the scientist and the engineer of pioneering nature. Yet a broad vision of the past is a most valuable asset to the workers and inventors of today. It forms a foundation for further progress and suggests roads to even higher goals than we have thus far reache... View full abstract»

    The future air-pollution control system that is described in Parts I and II of this article will be equipped with sensors to monitor the current status of local air pollution and meteorological factors such as wind, stability, or mixing depth. The system will be furnished not only with data on the location and strength of pollution sources and synoptic weather conditions, but with any other inform... View full abstract»

    Derived from a report of the Ad Hoc Committee To Assess U.S. Economic Conditions in the Electrical, Electronics, and Related Industries, this article reports on the group's principal findings for the 1970s. Their study sees a slowing of the demand for engineers with the rate increasing at about 2 percent a year, with supply and demand for electrical engineers reasonably in balance Government spend...
