Ideas and information : managing in a high-tech world by Arno A Penzias( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in 7 languages and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one short human generation, the primary work of the world has moved from the use of muscle to the use of machines, machines that move information rather than goods. We live in the age of the information revolution. That revolution centers upon the computer, a machine of unquestioned power but questionable intelligence and competence. At heart, after all, computers are nothing more than souped-up pocket calculators which can push their own buttons. As such, they provide an electronic means for speeding up the basic operations of arithmetic -- simple operations which enough pencils and paper could handle. Speed makes all the difference. And yet this speed has altered the world. Arno Penzias has written this book to demystify the computer and to explain the relationship of human beings and the human brain to the new electronic world
Harmony : business, technology & life after paperwork by Arno A Penzias( Book )

What tasks lie ahead for our evolving workforce? While today's products and services are markedly better than past offerings, shortcomings abound: These new gizmos are often hard to use, incompatible with each other, and a burden on our natural environment. The solution to these problems lies in the huge task of harmonizing the outputs of our technology. We are entering the era of harmony, a system of marketplace value that will emphasize ease of use, true systems integration, and environmental renewal. This new competitive challenge will occupy the workers who seemed to be the first casualty of the information age

As information networks extend individual reach into unfamiliar territory, we need to enhance human skills such as questioning and estimation.

A personal information processing strategy is called for: a long-term plan to profit from the world's most powerful information tool, the human mind

Cosmos, Bios, Theos contains the varied and exciting replies of 60 leading scientists (including 24 Nobel prizewinners) to the following six questions: What do you think should be the relationship between religion and science? What is your view on the origin of the universe: both on a scientific level and -- if you see the need -- on a metaphysical level? What is your view on the origin of life: both on a scientific level and -- if you see the need -- on a metaphysical level? What is your view on the origin of Homo sapiens? How should science -- and the scientist -- approach origin questions, specifically the origin of the universe and the origin of life? Many prominent scientists -- including Darwin, Einstein, and Planck -- have considered the concept of God very seriously. What are your thoughts on the concept of God and on the existence of God?
