Konrad Zuse

Konrad Zuse

German inventor, one of the founders of modern computing. Best known as the creator of the first programmable (and Turing complete) computer in the world.
Of course, we knew that the official reports were sketchy, if not falsified. But, in terms of information theory, this is precisely where the problem lay: How were we to reconstruct reality from incomplete or false reports? It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false. On the contrary, most news is completely correct, albeit tendentiously slanded; it is just that certain information is suppressed. One can adjust for the political slanting of the news, but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.More Konrad Zuse quotes [07/06/2011 09:07:50]
