"Norbert Wiener" (November 26, 1894 – March 18, 1964) was an American mathematician and philosopher. He was Professor of Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology/MIT.

A famous child prodigy, Wiener later became an early researcher in stochastic processes/stochastic and noise processes, contributing work relevant to electronic engineering, electronic communication, and control systems.

Wiener is considered the originator of cybernetics, a formalization of the notion of feedback, with implications for engineering, systems control, computer science, biology, neuroscience, philosophy, and the organization of society.
