Abstract. It may be centuries before there is a well developed Universal
Automated Information System for Science and Technology, but such a
system is starting to grow even now. We consider various aspects of such
a system.
Let us try to look ahead a few hundred years and imagine what we may find.
Surely there will be computer-based information sources which can be used as
aids in answering questions from all realms of mathematics, science, applied sci-
ence, and technology. Just as those searching for information on the web today
tend to regard "the web" as one monolithic information source, those who use
these information sources of the future are likely to think of them as comprising
a Universal Automated Information System for Science and Technology. What
will this system be like? One possibility is that it will be a huge kluge of sys-
tems designed by specialists from various fields using whatever techniques and
programming methodologies they found most immediately convenient. Another
