Abstracts "The Power of Systems: Although the interest in the cultural and political histories of cybernetics is growing, the notion of scientific prediction, which is central to cybernetic control, is insufficiently examined.
However, this talk proposes that prediction is not a mere technical cog in the epistemology of the future, but a complex concept. It discusses Norbert Wiener's epistemology of cybernetic prediction, arguing that the cybernetic culture of prediction emphasizes the role of uncertainty and does not replace materiality with information.
Wiener's writings on cybernetic prediction, therefore, contain useful lessons for the future oriented practices in the broad fields of contemporary science, governance and politics. Cybernetics in Britain " My topic is the history of cybernetics, this strange science that grew up in the s and 50s, reached an apogee in the s- not coincidentally, the time of the counterculture- then disappeared into obscurity and which, more recently, has been making quite a comeback in the humanities and social sciences.
I describe why cybernetics interests me now, and gesture towards its political potential, which is much argued about.
Developments in AI and robotics are very rapid and are accelerating. The possibility of robots overtaking humans in capability is very real. Some very grand claims have been made about robots AI and our future. This talk describes and compares human evolution with robot development.
The cases of humanoid robots and driverless cars are briefly covered. The case of robot vision is addressed with a brief look at my own research in this field. In some fields the capability of technology far exceeds that of humans, in some aspects the technology has many years to go before it reaches that of humans.
Developments in control theory and communications seemed to have solved the challenges of robot capability exceeding that of humans, whilst the current capabilities of computation in software and hardware still lag far behind, but are catching up fast.
The technologies are exciting but will be disruptive. How to Act in Situations of Uncertainty and Complexity in a Climate-Change World" This talk shows how to do systems thinking and translate that thinking into praxis theory informed practical action.
