A statement of information needed for a realistic attack upon the questions of predicting the future impact of computers on society, the social and moral implications, and the actions that might be taken to alter some of the possible consequences. Among the topics are the implications for invasion of privacy, improper manipulation and control; the influence of information feedback and overload; and the problem of obtaining individual treatment in a computer-based selection system. What values do we wish to foster? And how fast can corrective action become effective?
