2. Computer Science - discipline
  • What is Computer Science?
  • Studying algorithmic mechanisms of computational
    processes independently of the application
    domain, i.e. how to solve problems of a society
    by means of computers.
  • It has often been said that a person does not
    really understand something until he teaches it
    to someone else. Actually a person does not
    really understand something until he can teach it
    to a computer, i.e. express it as an algorithm.
    Donald Knuth

2. What Computer Scientists do...
  • Design and implement algorithms in forms of
    software
  • Design/implement algorithms using programming
    languages as a way of communications with
    hardware
  • Design, implement, test and maintain a marketable
    product called software, i.e. software
    manufacturing

13
2. Computer Scientists include...
  • Software Engineers
  • Model, analyze, design and maintain software
  • Systems Programmers
  • Develop and maintain system software
    assemblers, macro assemblers, compilers, and
    operating systems
  • Systems Administrators
  • Administer computer systems and local area
    networks
  • Computer Network Specialists
  • Design and implement computer networks, Internet
    and Intranet software systems

14
2. Computer Scientists include...
  • Information System Programmers
  • Analyze, design and maintain information systems
    for business, management, and process control
  • Object Technology Specialists
  • Model, analyze, design and maintain software
    built in the object technology (Java and C)
  • Database System Specialists
  • Model, analyze, design and maintain
    decision-support and expert systems based on
    database machines

15
2. The future of computer science is in
  • Multi-windowed user interfaces with multimedia
    systems
  • Large databases (data warehouses)
  • Local and global area networks
  • Parallel, distributed and real-time computing
  • Highly complex system specifications
  • Group efforts (in software development)
  • Effective communication of results

16
2. Future agenda... software engineering
  • Design languages that permit programmers to
    operate at more productive levels
  • Software engineering environments and databases
    that provide automated support (CASE tools)
  • Graphics and human interfaces that facilitate
    human understanding of large software systems
  • Design for reusability that would allow software
    created for one application to be adopted to use
    in another
  • Automated systems for program specifications,
    verification and testing to ensure systems
    correctness
  • Techniques for system maintenance that facilitate
    error correction, security and system evolution

17
2. Future Agenda ... Parallelism
  • Component Design processors, memory systems,
    interconnection, networks optimized for parallel
    operation
  • Architecture how to organize components in ways
    that maximize their programmability
  • Languages and Language Implementation automatic
    extraction of parallelism inherent in serial
    code developing natural languages for parallel
    programming
  • Algorithms and Applications limits on parallel
    computation effective parallel algorithms
  • Distributed Computing how to manage loosely
    coupled and geographically separated processors
