Claude Shannon (1916 - 2001)
In 1936, graduate student Claude Shannon arrived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the best tradition of grad. students, Shannon was short of money, and happy to be recruited by his professor, Vannevar Bush , to tend the unwieldy entrails of Bush's mechanical computing device - the Differential Analyser. The Differential Analyser, while a marvel of scientific engineering for its time, was a lot of hard work to maintain. Basically an assembly of shafts and gears, the gears themselves had to be manually configured to specific ratios before any problem could be ‘fed’ to the machine - a boring, laborious (and extremely messy) business. ("I had to kind of, you know, fix [it] from time to time to keep it going".) Encouraged by Bush to base his master's thesis on the logical operation of the Differential Analyser, Shannon inevitably considered ways of improving it, perhaps by using electrical circuits instead of the present cumbersome collection of mechanical parts. Not long afterwards, it dawned on Shannon that the

Claude Shannon
My prediction (remember, you heard it here first) is that the name of Claude Elwood Shannon (1916- ) will be a household word 250 years from now. Historians of the future will hail Shannon as the father of the Information Age, much as we now see Newton as the author of the Scientific Revolution, some 250 years previously. Both Shannon and Newton created a solid mathematical foundation for the key technologies of their age (Shannon for information and communication theory, Newton for mechanical physics), thus turning them into true sciences and unleashing vast changes in knowledge, industry, and society. Shannon's master's thesis (MIT, 1937) investigated the use of electrical circuits to model logical statements. Shannon was one of the few people of his day familiar with both electrical engineering and the mathematical logic of Boolean algebra. He showed how electrical switches could be used to carry out calculations and detailed instructional procedures, thus foreshadowing the electronic computer. After MIT, Shannon joined Bell Telephones in 1941 as a research mathematician. In 1949, with the strong urging of his colleagues, he published

    shannon, claude Elwood (1916). US mathematician who founded the scienceof information theory. He argued that entropy is equivalent
    Shannon, Claude Elwood US mathematician who founded the science of information theory. He argued that entropy is equivalent to a shortage of information content (a degree of uncertainty), and obtained a quantitative measure of the amount of information in a given message.
    Shannon reduced the notion of information to a series of yes/no choices, which could be presented by a binary code. Each choice, or piece of information, he called a 'bit'. In this way, complex information could be organized according to strict mathematical principles. He also wrote the first effective program for a chess-playing computer.
    His book The Mathematical Theory of Communication 1949 was written with W Weaver (1894-1978).
    Shannon was born in Gaylord, Michigan, and studied at the University of Michigan and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). From 1941 he worked at the Bell Telephone Laboratories, but he also held academic positions at MIT from 1956, and in 1958 he left Bell to become professor of science.
    As early as 1938 Shannon began examining the question of a mathematical approach to language. His methods, although devised in the context of engineering and technology, were soon seen to have applications not only to computer design but to virtually every subject in which language was important, such as linguistics, psychology, cryptography, and phonetics; further applications were possible in any area where the transmission of information in any form was important.

    At noon on a beautiful day in early November, approximately two hundred members of the University of Michigan Community attended the dedication of a Eugene Daub statue of Claude Elwood Shannon at the west entrance to the EECS Building on the North Campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Claude E. Shannon was a University of Michigan graduate BSE EE '36, BSE Math '36. His legendary 1948 paper, "The Mathematical Theory of Communication" unveiled the vast potential for digital communications and inspired virtually all of the work in digital communications that followed. He is also famous for his work on cryptography, the sampling theorem, and the discovery of the relevance of Boolean algebra to logic circuit design. He is considered to be one of the people most responsible for ushering in the digital age. To learn more about Shannon and his work, consider these

Here are some photos of Claude's juggling machines Here is a rare movie of Claude demonstrating his two most famous juggling machines (from the 1985 Canadian Broadcasting Company program, "The Nature of Things." quicktime movie Claude Elwood Shannon 1916-2001. Survived by his wife Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Shannon, a son, Andrew Shannon, and a daughter, Margarita "Peggy" Shannon. Many Jugglers have heard about the juggling robot invented by Claude Shannon, and jugglers of a mathematical bent will know of Shannon's juggling theorem. However, among mathematicians and computer scientists, Claude Shannon is a legend, widely recognized as one of the most brilliant men of the twentieth century. It is impossible to overstate his importance in the early development of computers and digital communication. In 1990, Scientific American called his paper on information theory, "The Magna Carta of the Information Age." In the 1980's Claude quietly showed up at a computer science lecture (after having been away from the field for many years). One attendee said, "It was as if Isaac Newton had showed up at a physics conference." When people realized who he was they pushed him on stage. He gave a very short speech, then juggled a bit. Afterwards, attendees lined up to get his autograph.

    Communication Theory
    In the late 1940s Claude Shannon, a research mathematician at Bell Telephone Laboratories, invented a mathematical theory of communication that gave the first systematic framework in which to optimally design telephone systems. The main questions motivating this were how to design telephone systems to carry the maximum amount of information and how to correct for distortions on the lines.
    His ground-breaking approach introduced a simple abstraction of human communication, called the channel. Shannon's communication channel consisted of a sender (a source of information), a transmission medium (with noise and distortion), and a receiver (whose goal is to reconstruct the sender's messages).
    In order to quantitatively analyze transmission through the channel he also introduced a measure of the amount of information in a message. To Shannon the amount of information is a measure of surprise and is closely related to the chance of one of several messages being transmitted. For Shannon a message is very informative if the chance of its occurrence is small. If, in contrast, a message is very predictable, then it has a small amount of information-one is not surprised to receive it.
    To complete his quantiative analysis of the communication channel, Shannon introduced the entropy rate, a quantity that measured a source's information production rate and also a measure of the information carrying capacity, called the communication channel capacity.

    El matemático Claude Shannon murió el Sábado 22 de Febrero, a los 84 años de edad, luego de una larga lucha contra el mal de Alzheimer. Pero su legado intelectual perdurará mientras la gente se comunique usando el teléfono y el fax, la Internet, o simplemente hablando de "información" como un recurso que puede ser medido en "bits" y enviado de lugar en lugar. Sigue aún vigente el enfoque de la información y la comunicación que Shannon estableció en su revolucionario trabajo "A Mathematical Theory of Communication" (Una Teoría Matemática de la Comunicación) publicado en el Bell System Technical Journal (Revista Técnica de los Sistemas Bell) en 1948, y vuelto a publicar virtualmente exacto en el panfleto "The Mathematical Theory of Communication" (La Teoría Matemática de la Comunicación), que escribió junto a Warren Weaver el año siguiente (publicado por la Universidad de Illinois). (Observe el cambio de artículo -"La" por "Una"- de la versión Shannon-Weaver). Shannon nació en Michigan en 1916. Luego de obtener títulos en Matemáticas e Ingeniería en la Universidad de Michigan, ingreso al MIT (Massachussets Institute of Technology) para continuar estudios de postgrado en Matemáticas. Aqui hizo contacto con muchos de los hombres que estaban creando las bases para revolución de la información que explotaría a finales de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, en especial, con el matemático Norbert Wiener (quien más adelante acuñaría el término "cibernética" para parte del trabajo que el mismo, Shannon y otros en el MIT y otras partes), y Vannevar Bush, el decano de Ingeniería en el MIT (cuya máquina conceptual "Memex" prefiguró la moderna World Wide Web y entre cuyos logros subsecuentes se incluye el establecimiento de la "National Science Fundation" -Fundación Nacional de la Ciencia-).

    Claude E. Shannon, 1916-2001
    Posted 26 Feb 2001 by schoen (Master) According to Dave Farber, Claude Shannon is dead Readers of my diary will remember that I remarked over the weekend that Dr. Shannon was still alive which may have been true at the time. Shannon was one of the greatest scientists of this century and was particularly responsible for our modern concepts of Boolean algebra for logic synthesis, bits, bandwidth, information, signal and noise, and error detection and correction (as well as important work in cryptography). He is the single most important pioneer of modern communications theory. He was an avid juggler and wrote a paper on the mathematical theory of juggling which is still read by modern juggling researchers. Everyone who designs a logic circuit or uses telecommunications owes something to Shannon. Some people also believe that Shannon's information theory has a very deep relevance to physics; a lot of current studies of thermodynamics focus on the relation between Shannon entropy and thermodynamic entropy. The lab in New Jersey which does research in information theory is called the Shannon Lab in his honor.

  • IF you are reading this while on your way to Gatwick, or any other holiday airport, good luck, particularly at about 9.30am. There will be more holidaymakers flying off for summer this morning than at any other time of the year, so checking-in could be slower than breakfast service in tourist class on the Trans-Siberian Express (tea in Omsk, toast by Tomsk, as you asked). It is the week that tour operators and airport owners earn their biggest profits — and the various consumer bodies receive their biggest postbag of complaints. Lost bags and flight delays lead the way and, as we report on page 4, it isn’t getting any better. So it is perhaps not so surprising that friends, colleagues and the vaguest acquaintances of the Times Travel desk, of which there are many at this time of the year, have been more eclectic and adventurous in their requests for inside travel tips and information.

    Claude Shannon
    Shannon founded the mathematical theory which underlies the current revolution in communication. He first defined information, and then showed how to transmit information fautlessly over a noisy channel by suitable encoding. The requirements for a good code have guided the search for codes ever since, and we can see that communication in the natural world is governed by the same model. Information is defined as 'that which removes uncertainty'. The measure of an item of information is the amount of uncertainty it removes. Shannon chose entropy as his measure of uncertainty. Entropy had entered physics through the thermodynamics of heat engines. In thermodynamics it serves as a measure of disorder, complexity, or the quality of energy. The second law of thermodynamics tells us that entropy does not decrease. The mathematical expression of entropy goes beyond its physical origins. We now see it as a measure of the size of a space. The information necessary to specify a point in any space is equal to the entropy of the space. So, if we think of the english language as a space of, say, one million words, we may say that the entropy of english is one million per word, and the transmision of one english word conveys one million units of information.
