Claude Shannon's 100th Birthday
doodler: the artist Nate Swinehart
Last Saturday, 30 May, Google celebrated the 100th Anniversary of Claude Shannon with an interactive Doodle. The creative Doodle by Nate Swinehart celebrated the brilliance and lightheartedness of the father of modern digital communication.
Claude Elwood Shannon is often described as the father of the information age who created the term "bit", short for binary digits.
It's impossible to overstate the legacy of Claude Shannon. The paper he wrote for his master’s thesis is the foundation of electronic digital computing.
His most famous work is A Mathematical Theory of Communication (1949) in wich Shannon introduced information theory, the branch of mathematics focused on transmitting digital data.
It was in this masterpiece that he coined the term "bit", the fundamental unit of information wich relates to digital certainty: true or false, on or off, yes or no.
