November 20 is the twenty-second meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario.
With her long experience in systems and cybernetics communities, Allenna Leonard will lead a discussion on current thinking reflected in the 16th Congress of the World Organization of Systems and Cybernetics, as well as some of the historical context dating back to the 1970s.
On systems and cybernetics in the present, the discussion will center on Allenna's keynote address at WOSC, "Seeing Around Corners: Stafford Beer's Continuing Legacy"
On systems and cybernetics in the past, the discussion will benefit by an October 2014 article on the history of Project Cybersyn, and the relevance to Big Data, today.
See the suggested prereadings at http://wiki.st-on.org/2014-11-20.
The planning committee looks forward to feedback for future sessions.
