Q: Do you think (super) computers are important? Why?
Dr. Parker: “Absolutely important! Supercomputers will manage our data and connections in the future and probably already manage much of them at the present time. Everything we do is managed electronically – banking, finance, health information, business contact information. I am a teacher so all of my grading, student information, assignments, faculty information is handled electronically. In 1982 [when I began teaching] we had no computers available for record keeping. I appreciate greatly the positive effect computers have had on my life.”
