A Look into the Future of Information Processing
October-December 1990 (vol. 12 no. 4)
pp. 241-251

The computing center of the Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremburg in Germany, was inaugurated on November 29, 1968, with the installation of a Control Data 3300. In this invited address given in celebration of the event at that time, the attempted to forecast the future of information processing during the 20 years to follow.
