Featured in this issue is a report by a top Soviet computer expert to the First All-Union Conference on Programming. Topics covered are: the 5-year programming gap, hardware design shortcomings, and repetitive research. A photo-feature tracing the history of teaching machine use identifies prominent figures in the field and describes an array of hardware, from simple machines to complex computer-controlled classrooms. Two articles review problems of the computer industry, demanding stringent collective use systems. Other articles include organizational detail of the Central Economic Mathematics Institute; a survey of computer use in Armenia and Belorussia; two pieces on the BESM-6 computer, one that details its use in linear acceleration experiments; an overview of neurobionics; a discussion of training programming teachers; and an examination of cybernetics in the scientific revolution.
