Abstract:

Electronic information handling is a rapidly developing technology. It is parasitic upon, host to, and symbiotic with many other technologies. Like all other technologies, it is presumably dependent upon a body of fundamental scientific disciplines and knowledge. Advances in information technology can only come in three ways by specific R and D efforts in information handling per se by exploiting fortuitous advances in ancillary technologies and, by improvements in fundamental understanding. The emphasis of the paper is on the last of these, with emphasis on epistemology, intelligent automata, pattern recognition from visual to semantic, self-organization, and computer organization and programming.
