Description: In March, 1997, the Association for Computing Machinery will celebrate the next 50 years of computing. To understand what an extraordinary last fifty years the computer has had, you need only look around you -- probably no farther than your desk. Computers are everywhere: in our cars, our homes, our supermarkets, at the phone company office, and at your local hospital.

So the computer revolution is done, right? Not a chance. As the sixteen contributors to this volume make clear, the scientific, economic and social impact of computers is only beginning to be felt.
-- Microsoft's Gordon Bell and Jim Gray describe "The Revolution Yet to Happen"--how current trends will ultimately bring us computers that understand speech, anticipate our needs by observing our behavior, and control implanted sensors and effectors for virtually every part of the body.
-- Edsger W. Dijkstra tells us some things that won't happen: the pace of human adaptation to technological innovation, for instance, won't increase.
-- Paul Abraham describes "The World Without Work" and asks whether this is what we really want.
-- Donald Norman writes on "Symbiosis, or Why It's Good That Computers Don't Work Like the Brain".
-- Sherry Turkle describes how children relate to computer simulations of life.

This brilliantly eclectic collection, commissioned to celebrate a major milestone in an ongoing technological revolution, will fascinate anybody with an interest in computers and where they're taking us.
