Norbird Weiner (Norbert Wiener)

American mathematician, pioneer Cybernetics

Born November 26, 1894, his father's name Leo (Leo wiener), and mother Bertha (Bertha Kahn), both Jews who emigrated from Poland and Germany respectively.

Leo is a professor of Slavic language and literature at Harvard University. He taught Weiner since he was young, believing it in the teaching methods he developed, whether because of teaching techniques or special care from his father, but that turned Weiner into a child. Genius from a young age

In 1906, Weiner graduated high school at the age of 11 from Ayer High School, then continued to attend Tufts College, now a university in Massasusette.

1909 completed a bachelor's degree in Tuft College in Mathematics at just 14 years old.

1910 moved to Cornell in Philosophy

1911 Graduation

In 1913, he completed a doctoral degree from Harvard at age 19, completed a thesis on logic science “a comparison of the work of Ernst Schröder with that of Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell,” featuring Karl Schmidt as a consultant professor.

In 1914, he departed to Europe and had the opportunity to study with Bertrand Russell and G. Hardy (G. H. Hardy at Cambridge University and listened to lectures by David Hilbert and Edmund Landau at the University of Gottingen.

1915 was a philosophy professor at Harvard and worked as an engineer for General Electric, while he helped write the Encyclopedia Americana Encyclopedia.

In 1916, during the First World War, Weiner volunteered to train for military preparation, but he was not selected for office with the army due to the unenlisted sight.

In 1918, Weiner was invited to take part in a missile research project at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, where Weiner took office shortly.

February 1919, Weiner was discharged from the army because the world war ended.

Weiner took office as a math instructor at MIT.

In the 1920s, Weiner made the most important work in the mathematics industry, such as Wiener process, which is part of the stochastic process, Brownian motion theory, Paley-Wiener theory (Harmonic analysis).

1926 married Margaret Engeman, a German native. She was an assistant professor of language at Juneta College. Juniata college) They have two daughters together.

1933 was elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences, but no longer, he resigned.

In 1939, during the Second World War, Weiner worked on the development of weapons that needed to target moving targets. His concept was later developed as Extrapolation, Interpolation and Smoothing of the Stationary Time Series. Ndrey Kolmogorov (Andrey Kolmogorov)

became a member of the China Aid Society.

He also studied the concept of information theory, which led Weiner to think about Wiener Filter.

1948 wrote the book Cybernetics: Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine

1963 was awarded the National Medal of Science.

1964 in March, Weiner died in Stockholm (Stockholm) from a heart attack.
