From Computer History Museum Events: In a blockbuster paper in 1948, Claude Shannon introduced the notion of a "bit" and laid the foundation for the Information Age. His ideas ripple through such diverse fields as communication, linguistics, genetics, computing, cryptography, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cosmology. In later years, he constructed a mathematical theory of juggling, rode unicycles, wrote the first paper on computer chess and built a flaming trumpet!

Join us for a screening of The Bit Player, a film that combines interviews with leading scientists, archival film, inventive animation and compelling commentary from Shannon himself to tell the story of an overlooked genius who revolutionized the world but never lost his childlike curiosity. After the film, there will be a Q & A with the director Mark Levinson (Particle Fever).

John G. Linvill Distinguished Seminar on Electronic Systems Technology

Internet of Things and Internet of Energy for Connecting at Any Time and Any Place
Abstract / Description: 

In this presentation, I would like to discuss with you how to establish a sustainable and smart society through the internet of energy for connecting at any time and any place. I suspect that you have heard the phrase, "Internet of Energy" less often. The meaning of this phrase is simple.
