Cybernetics: the comic (part 2)

The second edition of my new Cybernetics comic strip. Norbert Wiener describes the impact of his works (“Cybernetics: or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine” and “The Human Use of Human Beings”) for the scientific community. He identifies ‘feedback’, ‘information’ and ‘automata’ as notions that have lost their novelty. According to Wiener, they are overused and have become cliché as scientific subjects. This, however, does not mean that these notions are insignificant. On the contrary,  the integration of information technologies within our contemporary society have brought about ‘new’ social dangers.
