Abstract

Computer science, a new addition to the fraternity of sciences, confronts its older brothers, mathematics and engineering, with an adolescent brashness born of rapid, confident growth and perhaps also of enthusiastic inexperience. At this stage, computer science consists less of established principles than of nascent abilities. It will, therefore, be the aim of this essay to sketch the major new possibilities and goals implicit in the daily flux of technique.
