Abstract

Gordon S. Brown The New York Club of the MIT Alumni Association held a dinner meeting at Longchamps Restaurant in New York City on the evening of February 2, 1955. The topic for the evening was ";Automation, What Is It?"; Over 500 alumni and friends braved the zero cold and falling snow to attend. Norbert Wiener and I were invited to tell about a few things that were going on at MIT in relation to automation. At that time Wiener was professor of mathematics, and I was professor and head of the Department of Electrical Engineering.
