IEEE 2014 Conference on Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century

250 0

Overview

On the 120th anniversary of his birth and 50th anniversary of his death, the IEEE is gathering scientists and engineers from around the world to a conference commemorating his life and work.

Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century is a program of activities, including the IEEE 2014 Conference on Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century initiated to reintroduce him to a younger generation.

During his life, Dr. Norbert Wiener influenced mathematics, philosophy, science, technology, ethics, biology, prosthesis, education, manufacturing and many other fields. Cyberspace is named after his multidisciplinary approach, “cybernetics”, a transdisciplinary approach for exploring regulatory systems, their structures, constraints, and possibilities. He was an early practitioner of diversity and social inclusion, and an advocate of social responsibility in the development of technology. This conference will look at his ideas and the influence they have today. It is part of a renewed interest in Dr. Wiener’s work, an interest that is being reflected in research, writing and practice, and in both old and new media.
