  • the mouse Claude Shannon's clever electromechanical mouse, which he called Theseus, was one of the earliest attempts to "teach" a machine to "learn" and one of the first experiments in artificial intelligence
  • Slide 9
  • The Ultimate Machine sole function was to switch itself off it is perhaps the most perfectly pointless machine conceivable.
  • Slide 10
  • Other invention, theories,etc.. Boolean theory A Mathematical Theory of Communication (book) Information entropy/ information theory Communication theory of Secrecy Systems Sampling theories Rocket- powered flying disk Motorized pogo stick Flame throwing trumpet A device that could solve the Rubiks Cube puzzle
  • Slide 11
  • A Rubric on Rubiks Cubics RRespect your cube and keep it clean. Lube your cube with Vaseline. Beware the dreaded cubist's thumb, The callused hand and fingers numb. No borrower nor lender be. Rude folk might switch two tabs on thee, The most unkindest switch of all, Into insolubility. [Chorus] In-sol-u-bility. The strangest place to be. However you persist Solutions don't exist. by:Claude Shannon
  • Slide 12
  • Mathematical theory of communication There is only one known project Shannon received help with ; The Mathematical Theory of Communication. The Mathematical Theory of Communication is a book co-authored by Warren Weaver.
