Über diesen Titel


In one human generation, the world's work has moved from muscle to machines that move information rather than goods. Driving the information revolution is the computer, a machine of unquestioned power but questionable intelligence. Arno Penzias, whose Bell Laboratories stands at the center of electronic innovation, explores here the relationship of human beings to the new electronic world. What, for instance, is information besides an assemblage of symbols, of numbers and words and pictures? When processing this information, how do machines extract meaning? How close can a machine come to human competence? How smart are computers likely to become? What does this mean for the human role in modern economic life? These are cutting-edge questions of technology and society answered here by the author, who shared the 1978 Nobel Prize in physics.

From Library Journal:

This is a positive, readable book about computers and people, not as in Sherry Turkle's best-selling The Second Self ( LJ 6/15/84), but told historically, and through anecdote. The author, a Nobel Prize winner and Bell Labs vice president, reveals the most through the insightful and diverse examples he gives. He talks about the computer's origins, workings, applications, limitations, management, artifical intelligence, and super capabilities. Penzias emphasizes that "the world's most powerful information tool will continue to be the human mind." This is a rare title to be enjoyed by the technical and nontechnical reader alike.
