  • Charles Babbage’s vision of computing has largely been realized; we are on the verge of realizing Vannevar Bush’s Memex; but, we are still far from passing the Turing Test. This article outlines a set of fundamental research problems that broaden the Babbage, Bush, and Turing visions. They extend Babbage’s computational goal to include highly secure, highly available, self-programming, self-managing, and self-replicating systems. They extend Bush’s Memex vision to include a system that… CONTINUE READING
