Norbert Wiener in the 21st Century conference has value for Academics, Industry Experts, Researchers and Students working and interested in multidisciplinary fields from control theory to science, technology and society. Norbert Wiener's work has applications in Industry, Biology, Art, Medicine, Computer Science and Automation. Several important application areas of Norbert Wiener's work are expected to dominate at least the next decade, as the unpredictable nature of these application domains can potentially result in near break down conditions such as traffic jams, stock market crashes and wars to mention a few.Cybernetic methods are relevant for addressing challenging problems arising in these domains and must be refined and expanded to meet the changing needs of the 21st century from a disciplinary to an adaptive multidisciplinary approach. This conference, therefore, aims at bringing together the methods that will require further research and development in order to appropriately address these application domains, and as such offers methods of studying and applying the works of Norbert Wiener in holistic-oriented, system-of-systems (SoS) based decision-oriented practices. Conference chair Dr. Greg Adamson is intereviewed here by Adam Ford.
