THE PRESIDENT said the meeting had heard the presentation of a most illuminating paper on the use which Engineers could make of that remarkable modern scientific development-the electronic brain or computer. What had impressed him was the astonishingly wide scope of the electronic computer extending from the solution of the most intricate arithmetical problems to playing a game of draughts against the operator. Incidentally this latter faculty might offer the operator one method of using some small part of the immense saving in time resulting from the use of the computer which it was claimed could solve in an hour numerical problems which would take a human brain three months to solve. Dr. R. K. Livesley
