Friday Brain Food: Claude Shannon — Father of the Information Age

 

Here’s a short video on mathematician Claude Shannon the father of information theory for your weekend.

Shannon was also an early developer of artificial intelligence and robotics, and was a transhumanist thinker who somewhat controversially stated, “I visualise a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans. And I’m rooting for the machines.” (Claude Shannon interviewed in Omni Magazine 1987)
