Abstract

In the history of the art of measurement, computer type instruments have been in existence for a very short time. They can still be considered by-products of the computer technology, but there is no doubt that computer type instruments will in a future have the same importance for the human welfare and the evolution of sciences as electronic computers have to-day. In this article two examples are described, related to paper industry and nuclear physics research.
