Description

Information Technology Serving Society focuses on the potential roles of information technology in shaping society, including advances in the capabilities of computers, progress of processes in information transfer, and implementation of information technology control measures.
The selection first discusses information transfer, as well as the benefits and risks of the relationship of computers and human, the need for information policy, and challenges in information technology. The book then takes a look at information policy and technology in transition. Topics include developments in information policy and technology, applications of computers to social functions, and use of data bases in time-sharing services. The publication examines the combination of computing power and human ingenuity, including the value of communications, role of automation, and voice command recognition. The text also underscores how the use of computers has improved the processes of information gathering, sharing, and retrieval in the congress and senate. The need for the government to impose regulations on information technology is emphasized.
The selection is a must for readers interested in the developments and applications of information technology.
