Definition Edit

Cybernetics (from the Greek word κυβερνητική (kybernētēs) "steersman, governor, pilot, or rudder") is "the scientific study of control and communication in the animal and the machine."[1]

Overview Edit

"Cybernetics is a broad field of study, but the essential goal of cybernetics is to understand and define the functions and processes of systems that have goals and that participate in circular, causal chains that move from action to sensing to comparison with desired goal, and again to action. Studies in cybernetics provide a means for examining the design and function of any system, including social systems such as business management and organizational learning, including for the purpose of making them more efficient and effective."
