Abstract:

Corbató discusses computer science research, especially time-sharing, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Topics discussed in the first session include: Phil Morse and the establishment of the Computation Center, Corbató's management of the Computation Center, the development of the WHIRLWIND computer, John McCarthy and research on timesharing, cooperation between International Business Machines (IBM) and MIT, J.C.R. Licklider and the development of Project MAC. Topics discussed in the second session include: timesharing, the development of MULTICS by the General Electric (GE) Computer Division.

IBM's reaction to MIT working with GE, the development of CTSS, the development of UNIX in cooperation with Bell Labs, interaction with the Information Processing Techniques Office of the Advanced Research Projects Agency, interaction with Honeywell after they purchased GE's Computer division, the transformation of Project MAC into the Laboratory for Computer Science.
