American Computer Scientists
Stay current with our up-to-date research --
just a few samples of the more than 2000+ projects:
Geodesic Space Environmental Designs for Students and the Public. Education
Advanced Research Centers on the Web and on membership premises, sponsored
for breakthroughs in science and technology.
Public Advocacy and Consumer Concern response system for the good of
Technology-directed activities that have a pro bono angle. Supercomputing,
Microminiaturization, Advanced Semiconductors, High Speed Computing, Advanced
Internet Technologies, Space Computation, Molecular, DNA and Biological
Computing, BioMetric and Neurolinking Computation, Artificial and Natural
MBNA Affinity Credit Card programs for Computer Scientists and the Public.
AIG International Insurance of all kinds for ACSA members.
HGr3. Research in reclamation of contaminants from
topsoil using computer controlled mobile systems.
Ed Bogdan, Lead Investigator.
The Native American Projects: Catching the Bureau of Indian Affairs in its
own lies, supporting the intervention in the poverty and human rights
deprivation cycle on behalf of fellow citizens that happen to be of Native
American origin, using science, technology and public education as a tool to
intercept the ongoing vectors of deceit that have damaged the Native American
Community for 500 years and longer.
Virtual Court. Visualization and implementation of
the future all electronic courtroom. Mike Sproule and
Mike Leavy, Esqs., lead investigators.
All Electronic Library (Library Project Articulum).
Advances in 3D imaging, remote access and virtual libraries.
Learning Disabilities and Autism. A project to examine
the benefits of using computer technology for education for
the learning disabled and educationally challenged.
Consumer Concerns ® - the complaints and research
section which makes a difference - helping consumers obtain
better quality products. Complaint investigations have ranged
from as simple as a faulty design on a hard disk drive, to
a major computer company allegedly involved in substantially
and materially false TV Advertising and deceptive Selling
practices. Virtually all projects have had a successful
impact in improving a vendor's awareness of the problems
with a particular strategy or product, and nearly every
complainant has had their Consumer Concern resolved.
Toxicity ARD. (Auto-immune Retrogression Disorder) The
use of electronic components - can it repress the immune
system? Dr. Wilson Clemens, lead investigator.
Matran Logic. The study and practical application of
the school of transfigural mathematics devised by the
mathematics genius of Lere O. Shakunle, a Nigerian
mathematician living in Berlin.
ACSA Academy. Development of an entirely new means for
Computer Science Education - to be completed within five
years and made available to grades K through 12th Grade and
Universities throughout the world. Professor Rogers
Maxwell, Project Supervisor.
ACSA Speaking Engagements. Places where children never
get a chance to learn about life - can sometimes be within
a college or high school. ACSA arranges for keynote
speakers to address student bodies - for example, in 1995,
the head of Capital Markets at Prudential Securities was
sponsored to address the Rutgers Business School LIBOR.
Computers Can Educate. Inspired by experience working
with youth interns with juvenile delinquency backgrounds,
ACSA is developing plans and efforts to enhance the
"detention center" and "juvenile hall" experience for future
criminals of America, by giving them exposure to advanced
PC Multimedia intended to show them the alternative to
a criminal existence, through education. Assistant Chief
John R. Kroboth, Law Enforcement Liaison.
ACSA Museum of Computer Science. Gathering computers,
photos, historical fact and examination of historical
fictions, the MCS is chartered to spend five years and
then open its doors as a formal museum at the turn of the Millenium.
Massive Parallel Hypersystems - the Sentient Machine.
Working with some of the worlds most renowned theorists
on advance hypersystems, ACSA is hosting the development of the SM, and its
semiotic, human enhancing components.
GENCOM - On-Line CompuServe. Offering a place to go
and chat, a place where our researchers can engage in
scientific conversations on-line, an EMAIL center, a
Library of documentation and interesting topics and a
location to contact the Public, CompuServe Information
Systems has sponsored a forum for ACSA on its on-line
service, replacing our former Internet Conference Web Site.
Workgroups and Seminars will be regularly offered through
CompuServe's substantial Conference Auditorium.
Mr. Scott Cress, CompuServe Coordinator [CIS:SCOTT].
And, many, many other programs, designed to contribute to and lead to a
greater quality of life for ALL LIFE on the Planet.
ACSA became a non-profit, charitable research and education organization under IRC 501(c)3 during 1993. Prior thereto, its membership consisted of three organizations: the American Computing Association (formed in 1970), the American Certified Computer Consultants Associations (formed in 1980); and the American Certified Computer Scientists Association (formed in 1990). As a result of becoming a non-profit charitable association, ACSA ceased charging fees for membership in 1994, and made the 58,000 plus computer science and 1800 plus technology company membership life members. Since that time, ACSA has operated without any substantial professional fund raising and has managed to organize research, educational programs, academic programs, public awareness and pro-bono activities without receiving a single dollar of grant or donor moneys. Virtually all ACSA activities are contributory and the officers, trustees and staff are voluntary. Supportive efforts are donated as services, equipment, material or facilities. These donations remain the property of the donor until their use and when expended, the donor receives an acknowledgment certificate for its efforts. This novel approach eliminates administrative errors and costs. Used or new Computer Equipment donated to ACSA is held in escrow and then transferred either to the Museum curator or to a needy educational organization ranging from Public to Private Schools.
ACSA does not release a budget report to the public, however it maintains appropriate records with the appropriate regulatory agencies.
ACSA Award Programs
ACSA issues an Award to several notable individuals and companies each year, usually in May of each year. The nomination committee receives anonymous nominations through the months of December and January and announces its reward in Press statements, and a letter and/or floppy disk containing the inscription of the award by mail to the recipient. Also, the CD Journal of American Computer Science publishes the award winners names and a pr?is about them.
