       *_Convergence, Ambient Technology, and Success in Innovation
       <>_* an interview with Terry Winograd

Terry Winograd is Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University,
where he directs the program on human-computer interaction. His SHRDLU
program done at the MIT AI Lab was one of the early explorations in
natural language understanding by computers. His book with Fernando
Flores, Understanding Computers and Cognition, critiqued the underlying
assumptions of AI and much of computer system design, and led to
completely new directions in those fields.   He was a founder and
national president of Computer Professionals for Responsibility. His
remarks, made in 2002, are as relevant today as they were when first spoken.
