Bruno Buchberger, Round Table Discussion at the European Congress of Mathematicians, Barcelona, 2001: "Many mathematicians (in particular many of those who call themselves "pure") have a very limited view on the essence of the computational aspect of mathematics. This is not only in sharp contrast to the comprehensive view of mathematicians in earlier centuries but is also a serious obstacle to having mathematics accepted as the core technology for the present information and communication society."
