Cybernetics Or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine

Author: Norbert Wiener
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 026273009X
Release Date: 1965
Genre: Computers

"This book represents the outcome, after more than a decade, of a program of work undertaken jointly with Dr. Arturo Rosenblueth. The author and Rosenbleuth, as well as other scientists, became aware of the essential unity of the set of problems centering about communication, control, and statistical mechanics, whether in the machine or in living tissue. They were also hampered by the lack of unity of the literature concerning these problems, and by the absence of any common terminology. They decided to call the entire field of control and communication theory, whether in the machine or in the animal, by the name cybernetics. This book focuses on cybernetics, from its earlier history with computing machines to its more modern uses. This second edition includes both the first edition from 1846 and supplementary chapters from 1961"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).

Die Beiträge des Sammelbandes befassen sich mit zentralen Themen der Kybernetik: Was ist Kybernetik überhaupt? Wie können wir sie nutzen und wo können wir sie einsetzen? Die Autoren zeigen, dass unser Digitalzeitalter von umfassenden technologischen Neuerungen, komplexer Vernetzung und schnellen Innovationszyklen gekennzeichnet ist, die sich klassischen Beschreibungsmodellen und traditionellen Regelungsmechanismen entziehen. Immer vielfältiger interagierende Strukturen erfordern neue Methoden, um diese Komplexität zu beschreiben und zu gestalten. Hochkarätige WissenschaftlerInnen verschiedenster Fachgebiete erläutern die Kybernetik aus Sicht ihrer jeweiligen Disziplin.

Cybernetics Warfare and Discourse

Author: Anthimos Alexandros Tsirigotis
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319508474
Release Date: 2017-03-10
Genre: Political Science

This book critiques mainstream beliefs about cyberwarfare and forges a new path in the way of defining this largely misunderstood concept. Rather than outlining cyberspace as a new technology applied in military operations, here, Tsirigotis rallies against this technocentric account and establishes how cyberspace, first and foremost, should be categorized as a new way to understand war and military power in the Information Age. Using genre analysis and Corpus Linguistics, the author scrutinizes how cyberspace has changed the way the UK comprehends war and military power, and how the cybernetisation of war has manifested itself in Britain's approach to national defense and security.
