Abstract : Soviet efforts in designing third-generation computers are discussed in two featured articles, which describe (1) the development and production of integrated circuits, and their role in computers, and (2) the use of amorphous chalcogenide glass in lasers, infrared devices, and semiconductors. Other articles discuss production-oriented branch research institutes at universities reorganization of higher education along U.S. lines, and economics of computer centers. Hardware discussed includes the Minsk-32, a multi-processor with multimachine capability; teletype-input CRT display for the BESM-6; the Alpha structural mechanics computer; speech recognition by the BESM-3; remote-process control via telegraph line; and a heuristic approach to checker-playing on an M-20.
