cybernetics

The study of control and regulatory mechanisms in both natural and artificial systems. The term was coined by mathematician Norbert Wiener in the 1940s.  The more modern fields of complex systems and artificial intelligence owe some of their concepts to the study of cybernetics in the 1940s and 1950s.
