Norbert Wiener made contributions across several disciplines during his lifetime. Many of these were immediately relevant, and influenced theories and production during his day. Others were long-term, and only in recent years has it been possible to test their relevance. Separately, Wiener predicted the social impact of robotic, cybernetic and other technologies on the future of society, and after several decades his writing retain their relevance.
In recent years Wiener’s work has been coming to the fore in several fields, from control theory to science, technology and society. This conference will provide an opportunity to look at the full range of Wiener’s contributions, particularly those on the boarder of multiple disciplines that he valued much.
CSI through the Division II [Software] is one of the supporting organizations for this conference.
