Professor J.C.R. (Lick) Licklider (left) and Lecturer Albert Vezza,
Head of the Programming Technology Research Group, discuss a
display output of their Dynamic Modeling System. Professor
Licklider's research interests are in computer graphics, computer
networks, modeling and simulation as well as man-computer
interaction. He has been a pioneer in the evolution of time-shared
systems both as a faculty member and former director of the
Laboratory and as head of the Information Processing Techniques
Office of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). Mr. Vezza's
research interests are in knowledge-based pattern recognition
systems, in message systems, applications of data base systems,
and in software/hardware applications of Computer Science.
Professor Michael Hammer heads a research group in the design and
analysis of very large data bases. He is also interested in
programming languages and compilers, especially as they relate to
As a data base becomes very large, numerous problems emerge, such
as maintainability, reliability, currency, and cost to access and
update. Professor Hammer and his research group seek to understand
and address these problems through the study and design of novel
data-base system organizations.
Two Programming Technology researchers discuss a procedural
problem on the Dynamic Modeling System.
