Claude Shannon

Claude Shannon

Claude Elwood Shannon (1) was an American mathematician and an electronic engineer, known as the father of information theory. Less know to the public, Shannon was also a great juggler. Known as Shannon’s theorem, the equation (F+D)H=(V+D)N reveals the basic principle underlying a successful juggle ! F: time with ball in the air, D: time with ball in hand, H: number of hands, V: time with empty hand, N: number of balls. Shannon was not only juggling with information bits !

James Gibson

James Jerome Gibson (1904-1979) is an american psychologist having played a crucial role in the science of visual perception. Rejecting first behaviorism in The Perception of the Visual World (1950) then classic cognitivism in The Ecological Approach to Visual Perception (1979), Gibson created a radically new ecological theory of perception.

Gibson created and popularized important concepts such as affordances, perception-action coupling, control laws  for action. Multiple contemporary theories in robotics, cognitive sciences, social sciences, medical sciences, or movement sciences, have their roots in Gibson’s original concepts.
