    Radio Specials The Computer History Museum Presents SRI: Innovating the Future -- SRI International's pioneering contributions to computing are legendary, from the invention of the computer mouse and interactive computing in the 1960s, to the first internetworked and wireless connections in the 1970s. In 2010, SRI created the first-generation virtual personal assistant, and sold Siri to Apple. John Markoff of The New York Times will explore SRI, beginning with a conversation with William Mark, vice president of information and computing sciences. Mark and his researchers are working on next-generation textbooks that use artificial intelligence, and human-machine interfaces that anticipate your moves. SRI's President and CEO Curt Carlson will also join the conversation to offer a unique definition of innovation and discuss its importance in government policy, education, and U.S. competitiveness. How does SRI do it, while many powerhouse corporate research labs have disappeared?
