How do you adapt to change?

This week, we’re celebrating the life of computer pioneer, systems scientist and IEEE Fellow, Jay W. Forrester. Although he is best known for his invention and development of coincident-current, magnetic-core memory, he made many other fundamental contributions to the organization, design, reliability, and the use of digital computers. Forrester later became head of the largest division of MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory, which was responsible for the design of the SAGE air defense system. He was the recipient of the IEEE Medal of Honor in 1972. IEEE Awards
