It is now common knowledge that the announcement of the Japanese Fifth Generation Computing Programme in 1982 led to the announcement of a number of national and international programmes in Information Technology, including the Esprit programme. These are popularly considered as being in response to the Janpanese initiative. However, the Esprit and the UK Alvey programmes had been preceded by some years of discussion between industrial and government representatives. They, therefore, overlap rather than follow the Japanese Programme and tend to cover a much wider range of subjects. The Esprit Software Technology Programme 1985 is described, followed by a report on the Japanese Fifth Generation Conference. A comparison between the approaches of the two programmes is then made.
