Automation and Society. The Georgia-Reliance Symposium.
Scott, Ellis L., Ed.; Bolz, Roger W., Ed.
In order to explore the status of technology and its relationships with areas of social concern, nearly 50 leading authorities in social organization, automation technology, education, and business met for this symposium. Among the 12 articles in this report are position papers prepared for each of the four areas, in advance of the conference by Clifford E. Evanson (technology), Grant Venn (education), Herbert Kleiman (business and the economy), and Frederick L. Bates (social cultural dimensions of automation). As a result of the symposium, The Center for the Study of Automation and Society was established in Athens, Georgia, co-sponsored by the University of Georgia and The Reliance Electric Company. (BH)
