In this report, the OTA examines four specific areas of research in computer and communications technologies as case studies: computer architecture, artificial intelligence, fiber optics, and software engineering. It discusses the structure and orientation of some selected foreign programs. Finally, it examines a set of issues that have been raised in the course of the study: manpower, institutional change, the new research organizations that grew out of Bell Laboratories, and implications of trends in overall science and technology policy.
