Description - Computing Tomorrow by Ian Wand
This collection of original essays by distinguished computer scientists celebrates the achievements of research and speculates about the unsolved problems in computer science which require future investigation. Since the subject stretches from new technology in the field, through engineering design to foundations in mathematics, there is a wide variety of concerns and approaches among the authors. The book's purpose is to show that long-term research in computer science is crucial and that it must not be driven solely by commercial considerations. The authors do not shirk the difficult aspects of their topics, but try to expose them in the simplest terms possible without diluting them, in order that the reader can understand the issues involved. Thus the book also represents a broad overview of much of the current state of knowledge and future expectations of computer science, illustrating that it is much more than a technology and is now a fully-fledged and growing intellectual discipline with its own engineering principles and its own scientific concepts and models.
It will be stimulating reading because it represents the views of prominent authorities who have had a significant impact on the direction of innovation, research and development in computer science.
