Abstract:

Traub discusses institutions in computing. He begins by discussing why computer science has developed as a discipline at some institutions, but not at others. Institutions that are highlighted include: Stanford, Berkeley, the Moore School of Electrical Engineering, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Carnegie-Mellon. Traub describes his experiences as chairman of computer science departments at Carnegie-Mellon and later Columbia.

Other topics include: industrial and government funding of computer science departments (in particular the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense); the relationships between academic centers, such as MIT, Stanford, Columbia, and Carnegie-Mellon; and the importance of educational institutions to regional centers of industrial computing. At the end of the interview, Traub returns to a topic in his earlier interviews: his experiences at Bell and Watson Laboratories.
