Abstract:

The basic ideas of cybernetics are popularly expounded as the science of the general principles of control. Primary attention is allotted to technical cybernetics, questions of the control of technical processes, and the creation of artificial controlling systems consisting of devices for perception, transmission, storage, and processing of information. Elementary information from information theory is given as well as that on automatic adjustment and electronic computers. The possibilities of fulfillment by the latter of different logical functions are considered. A considerable quantity of practical applications of cybernetic technology is described both in the field of automation of control, calculation and planning, as well as in the field of simulation of physiological processes in living organisms. Broader materials are represented regarding information-logical machines, information converters, self-organized systems, and bionic methods of improving cybernetic technology.
