National Commission on Technology, Automation and Economic Progress, Washington, DC.
Twelve studies dealing with the problems of applying technology to unmet human and community needs are presented. "Urban Planning and Metropolitan Development--The Role of Technology," examines the possibilities of the computer and other modern planning tools. "Technology, Automation, and Economic Progress in Housing and Urban Development" describes innovations in the housing field. "Technology and Urban Needs--A Report of the Engineering Foundation Research Conference on the Social Consequences of Technology" summarizes the conclusions of the 60 participants. "The Four Aerospace Contracts--A Review of the California Experience" reports on feasibility studies of the application of aerospace industry skills to problems of urban transportation and solid waste control. Another paper analyzes the same studies to determine the usefulness of the systems approach to large-scale social problems. "Technological Change As It Relates to Air Pollution,""Water Pollution Control," and "Report on the Solid Waste Problem" describe the problems and suggest alternative solutions. Other papers treat (1) transportation policy, (2) life sciences, (3) social, political, and economic models and simulations, and (4) techniques to assure the proper use of government developed technologies. Other appendixes to VT 003 962 are VT 003 960, VT 003 961 and VT 005 795-VT 005 797. (EM)
