Norbert Wiener was the founder of the science of cybernetics, concerned with revealing the common principles in the workings of computing machines and those of the human nervous system.
Accepting the mechanization of the human brain, Wiener equated it with automation, which emerges as a force for either good or evil. It is desireable that automation should replace man’s drudgery and release him for more creative and rewarding pursuits, but such advancement could simultaneously lead to the dehumanization of life.
