Abstract:

The principal focus of the project has been the production of a time- sharing system to demonstrate the potential of interactive computing in the Thai environment. In addition to the production of the resource-sharing system, activities included the development of a system for Thai transliteration, operation of the computer and its associated service bureau, production of utility programs, and production and maintenance of hardware and software for attaching the various consoles. The system of Thai transliteration was developed to determine the extent to which transliteration can be performed by a computer, given only a Thai word as input, the work was divided into orthographic research and computer programming. Problems of maintaining the computer, training operators, and handling documents were solved by methods standard in the United States, although the Thai environment required more personal attention to users problems and considerably more time in teaching.
