What can we learn from Cybernetics to help us in post-Covid recover?

We are delighted to announce that Raul Espejo, the pioneer of Cybernetics and Cybersyn system will give our annual Cybersalon Xmas Lecture in person.  We will gather in Newspeak House, in Shoreditch, to discuss what Cybersyn pioneers would say about our chances of ‘bouncing back better’. To optimise or to re-boot, this is the question (or one of many).

From Stafford Beer,  Janos Kornai to more modern Viable Systems Model, cybernetics can all point at solutions for our current predicament.  How do you balance  rapid adaptation to new circumstances with making sure you don’t fall over is the question for 2022.

Raul Espejo worked on the original Cybersyn in Chile in 1971-1973 during presidency of Salvador Allende. He has escaped safely and then has bee lecturing world-wide on the future of systems. Raul is currently based in Lincoln University.

After the talk we will host a discussion on future of systemic adaptation to Climate Change with Raul Espejo, Dr Richard Barbrook, (Westminster University) Eva Pascoe (Cybersalon.org)  and Edward Saperia (Dean of Newspeak House)
