Pub. Date: 03/19/2009
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This collection of original essays by distinguished computer scientists celebrates the achievements of research, and speculates about the unsolved problems in computer science which require future investigation. Since the subject stretches from new technology in the field, through engineering design to foundations in mathematics, there is a wide variety of concerns and approaches among the authors.It will be stimulating reading because it represents the views of prominent authorities who have had a significant impact on the direction of computer science in a country which has a long history of innovation, research and development in the subject.
