A weekly programme about work in the world of science
Control without Men by Christopher Strachey
The great revolution of the past two hundred years has been the production of power. The new revolution that is upon us is concerned with the control of that power. Indeed the study of control, both in machines and in animals, is one of the most exciting developments in present-day science.
The most versatile controlling machine yet made is the large electronic computer and in Science Survey this week and next Christopher Strachey talks about the study of control in animals and machines—or, as it is usually called, cybernetics.
