Abstract:

Fein discusses his involvement in establishing computer science as an academic discipline. In 1955 he joined Stanford Research Institute as a computer consultant and was asked by Frederick Terman and Albert Bowker to design a computation curriculum. He describes the difficulty in establishing computer science's autonomy from engineering programs. Fein also describes his contacts with the University of California-Berkeley, the University of North Carolina, Purdue, and other institutions. He recalls his 1962 International Federation for Information Processing presentation on computer science departments, and how his plans were accepted at many academic institutions in the United States and Europe.

Fein concludes with his views on the future of computer science, which entail a name change to "synnoetics" and a corresponding conceptional redirection to the interaction among intelligent beings, including humans and computers.
