To date, many of the successful results of Computer Science
research have been obtained through experimentation with computer
programs. In a new field such as this, the presence of adequate
computer resources is deemed essential. The Laboratory is fortunate
in having a variety of resources, about to be linked by a local data
network. These resources consist of three PDP/10 computers,
including a powerful PDP-10/80 system, and several smaller
machines comprising a total of seven million bytes of primary
memory and almost one billion bytes of secondary memory. The
machines are accessed by terminals located within the Laboratory
and by terminals within MIT or in other parts of the world through
direct telephone lines and through the ARPA network. In addition,
Laboratory members have access to the Multics time-sharing system
based on a Honeywell 6180 computer with one billion bytes of
secondary memory. This system is a nationwide resource, managed
by MIT's Information Processing Center.
