  • When at the close of the 20 ~ Century, I am supposed to talk about Computing Science, I am immediately faced with the question "Which Computing Science?" In my personal case I can narrow it down to "European CS or American CS", but with 32 years of European and 26 years of American employment as a computing scientist, I cannot eliminate the dilemma. (As an aside, don' t add the two numbers I gave you, for there was some overlap.) To summarize my position with respect to that transatlantic… CONTINUE READING
