MetadataShow full item record
Computing and information science and its technologies have properties of a "meta-science": they accelerate discovery in all branches of inquiry. Computing technology has created a new branch of science and engineering in which computer simulation leads to new discoveries and designs. Information technology has altered the means of scholarly communication and research. Proof technology has made it possible to use computers in creating and confirming mathematical results to unprecedented levels of certainty. CIS has its own identity as a discipline. It is concerned with computation for its intrinsic value and includes the mature discipline of computer science. CIS is concerned with dynamic digital information resources such as the Web and includes the emerging discipline of information science. CIS is concerned with building virtual realities that have aesthetic as well as practical value and includes graphics, animation, and interactive entertainment.
