Abstract : The objective of this report is to describe the technological opportunities for intelligent CAI (ICAI) that are expected from new developments in software and hardware technology. The recent advances in software for intelligent CAI are reviewed, followed by a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of trying to implement ICAI on time-sharing computers, personal computers, and LISP machines. (LISP is a symbol manipulation programming language used in artificial intelligence applications.) The prices of the component parts of a LISP machine are projected over a 10-year period, using trends that have been in effect in microelectronics for the last decade.
