  A Computational Foundation for the Study of Cognition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A careful analysis of computation and its relation to cognition suggests that the ambitions of artificial intelligence and the centrality of computation in cognitive science are justified.
A physical system implements a given computation when there exists a grouping of physical states of the system into state-types and a one-to-one mapping from formal states of the computation to physical state-types, such that formal states related by an abstract state-transition relation are mapped onto physical state-types related by a corresponding causal state-transition relation.
The thesis of computational explanation holds because computation provides a perfect language in which to specify the causal organization of cognitive processes; and the thesis of computational sufficiency holds because in all implementations of the appropriate computations, the causal structure of mentality is replicated.

The store is a store of information, and corresponds to the human computer's paper, whether this is the paper on which he does his calculations or that on which his book of rules is printed.
The reader must accept it as a fact that digital computers can be constructed, and indeed have been constructed, according to the principles we have described, and that they can in fact mimic the actions of a human computer very closely.
The digital computers considered in the last section may be classified amongst the 'discrete state machines' these are the machines which move by sudden jumps or clicks from one quite definite state to another.

 Business Wire: Association for Computing Machinery -ACM- Files... @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Led by Princeton University computer scientist Edward Felten, the plaintiffs are asking the court to rule portions of the DMCA unconstitutional, arguing that its broad prohibitions on disseminating information and technology restrict speech protected by the First Amendment.
As a leading society of 75,000 computer scientists, educators, and other professionals, ACM has filed a declaration in support of Professor Felten and the other plaintiffs to help the court understand the practical effect of the issues at stake in this case.
ACM is also concerned that, in addition to harming the progress of research, the risk of legal liability under the DMCA threatens the ACM's publication and sponsorship of professional computing conferences that might include scientific papers assessing the strengths and weaknesses of computer and data security measures.
