Abstract : The place of the manager in the computer age is surveyed with respect to two specific parts of the economy--general industry and the federal government. The capabilities and potentialities of present-day computers as decision makers are compared with some of the early predictions of Turing and Wiener. A result of this analysis is a more realistic view of the computer's role in management decisions of today and the future. (Author)
