Abstract:

Part 1 opens with a brief resume of the dynamic and structural assumptions underlying the cybernetic model, and it continues with a survey of the conditions that need to be satisfied in order to design rather than intuit a machine capable of maintaining stable interaction with a human operator. The remainder is concerned with describing and interpreting the experiments actually conducted. Part 2 considers the implications of these findings in greater detail, and with special reference to the problem of designing a practicable group tuition system. Because of the need for dynamic interaction, special emphasis is given to the possibility of devising a group system in which students and teachers alike can all be provided with this facility in controlled form.
