Abstract:

This collection of technical papers represents an expansion of ideas presented at the conference Technology Assessment Estimating the Future held at UCLA on September 5 and 6, 1990. The goal for the conference was to identify the major strategies and most promising practices for assessing technology. The papers present perspectives from computer science, cognitive and military psychology, and education. The authors, representing government, business, and university sectors, help to set the boundaries of present technology assessment practices. The papers are organized into three groups Models and Syntheses, Assessment of Software Strategies, and Examples of Training and Assessment Technologies. The groups reflect the specific emphases and research interests of the authors within the broad area of technology assessment.
