With Norbert Wieners Cybernetics or Control and Communication in the Animal and the Machine (1948) Technology starts to play with life. Since these early days of Cybernetics technology has made great progress. We no longer just try to explore the common processes of life and technology but to technically alter the processes of life and vice versa biologically control technical processes.

The seminar presents a general view of the developments since Wiener’s and puts relevant researches, and current projects and literatur up for discussion.
