    New Order from Old: The Rise of Second-Order Cybernetics and Implications for Machine Intelligence

    The following manuscript holds an overview of cybernetics from a personal perspective, including detailed sections on:

    • differences between the worldviews of cybernetics and artificial intelligence
    • contrasts between input/output systems and the "through-looping" of cognitive systems
    • entailment meshes as models of dynamic knowledge
    • the architecture of conversations.

    Intended for an audience with some familiarity of cybernetic concepts, this text was based on a keynote given at the American Society for Cybernetics Conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada in 1988. It remains to be revised and completed.
