  • respondents
  • To gauge the opinions of everyday Americans on this relatively complex and technical subject, the survey presented respondents with four different scenarios in which computers make decisions by collecting and analyzing large quantities of public and private data. (pewinternet.org)
  • THE COMPUTER THREAT TO SOCIETY Respondents were mixed in their feelings about the threatening nature of computers. (atariarchives.org)
  • Reflecting a rather positive shift in attitude, only 37% of the adult respondents agreed with this statement and 50% disagreed compared to the percentages of 54% agreement and 40% disagreement just four years ago in the AFIPS/Time survey. (atariarchives.org)
  • But perhaps in some of these more sophisticated applications in which the computer takes over some of the human decision-making function, youthful respondents are more fearful of computers and less optimistic than adults. (atariarchives.org)
  • software
  • The process of development and management of computer hardware and software might not be the most exciting part of the process, but it is one that is incredibly crucial to the final outcome. (allaboutcircuits.com)
  • H. Kent Frewing, a spacecraft software engineer, would manage the engineers responsible for each computer system and up to four programmers would work together on the project at once. (allaboutcircuits.com)
  • Applications of the mathematical models of motivations and attitudes in software engineering are demonstrated. (igi-global.com)
  • Laura Beckwith, a new computer science Ph.D. from Oregon State University, and her adviser, Margaret Burnett, believe that examining and altering software programs may be the key to attracting more women to the computer science industry. (umsl.edu)
  • strongly
  • Reflecting a more optimistic, perhaps somewhat naive view that one can drop out and avoid anything one doesn't approve of, only 67% of the young people felt they could not escape the influence of computers and 18% strongly disagreed with the notion that computers couldn't be avoided.

  • 2000
  • The importance of female participation in the development process only highlights the importance of strengthening the dwindling numbers of women choosing to earn degrees in computer science, which decreased by 70 percent between 2000 and 2005. (umsl.edu)
  • interaction
  • The small size, mobility, easily shared screen, handwriting recognition, wireless connections, and powerful processing and recording capabilities of tablet PCs make them less intrusive than traditional desktop computers to doctor-patient interaction and potentially more useful to physicians and patients than PDAs or smartphones.

  • Measures
  • Stereotypes of people with physical disabilities and speech impairments as detected by partially structured attitude measures. (pitt.edu)
  • data
  • Million dollar corporate computers have to be fed data around the clock to justify their investment and there is a growing army of midnight shift programmers and operators. (atariarchives.org)
  • In other words, young people see the computer doing a wide variety of things beyond simply data processing, numerical machine tool control, and telephone switching. (atariarchives.org)
  • Learn about the brains of the spacecraft: the command, data, and attitude control computer systems. (allaboutcircuits.com)
  • The computers at the heart of their operations consisted of three systems, each with dual-redundancy, that worked together to enable the probes to journey to Jupiter, Saturn, and beyond: the Computer Command System (CCS), the Flight Data Subsystem (FDS), and the Attitude and Articulation Control System (AACS).

  • Source
  • Persuasion and social perception of human vs. synthetic voice across person as source and computer as source conditions. (pitt.edu)
  • Process
  • Interactions and relationships between motivation and attitude are formally described in real-time process algebra (RTPA). (igi-global.com)
  • test
  • From brain to pencil to calculator: An exploratory test of the effect of technological evolution on attitudes. (pitt.edu)
  • Laboratory
  • The Viking CCS was the first redundant computer system implemented by JPL (NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory), with a relatively simple design that enabled much greater computing power. (allaboutcircuits.com)

  • image] [image] *** UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE OF COMPUTERS This issue was examined from two directions: what types of jobs are suitable for a computer and what will be its effect on human employment (or unemployment)? (atariarchives.org)
  • important
  • Despite the growing presence of algorithms in daily life, the U.S. public expresses broad concerns over the fairness and effectiveness of computer programs making important decisions. (pewresearch.org)
