  • Understanding of cyberspace using cybernetics: An imperative need for cybersecurity of enterprises

    Cyber-security continue to be at the center stage due to the ever increasing growth in automation and growing cyber attacks in cyberspace of business enterprises. Though cyber-security is at center stage the approaches to deal with it are of fragmented nature. There is a need to gain knowledge and understand the cyberspaces' influences on enterprises cybernetically in order to deal with cyber-security effectively for enterprises' survival, success and further growth. In this paper, we propose a cybernetics approach to study the cyberspace of any enterprise. Demonstrated its usefulness to improve the awareness and understanding of the influences of cyberspace on enterprises to build credible cyber threat detection capabilities and develop effective cyber-security solutions for enterprises.

  • Organization-wide innovation management, a cybernetics approach

    Firms are recognizing the need to distinguish between R&D and Innovation. Innovation is becoming a distinct management function in the lines of marketing, HR, etc. Businesses need to be ambidextrous in their thinking taking into account capabilities of both right (creative) and left (analytical) side of the brain as challenges faced today requires integral solutions. The need is to work in cross functional teams, develop deep understanding of customer role, collaborate and more importantly address customer needs that may even not known to them; rather than just apply branding or fancy design styling. Fundamentals to integral approach are collaboration, embracing multidimensionality, systems thinking and applying cybernetics principles. The integral approach should involve users, designers, customers and suppliers. One need to understand the user based on fieldwork study, reach insights into user role and discover unarticulated needs. We normally measure innovation in terms of its technical strength and its utility value. In many cases this may not be enough. Innovation is a renewal process in that it prepares one for the future. It involves investing in the development of competence of the people, developing capabilities in them, nurturing customer relationships, and organizing knowledge bases. The point where technical innovation gets done is at the core of all these activities. The Balanced Score Card (BSC) has aroused considerable interest in the last two decades in business performance measurement. The reason could be that the managers are finding something more than the short term revenue reports that are prevalent. In the similar way the innovation can be looked not just at the point of idea creation but should be viewed as a staged process in the organization for the innovation to see the light of the market in a concerted way. This paper explains a cybernetics approach of modeling the innovation activities along the lines of Balanced Score Card (BSC).The principles of cybernetics may considered to be useful in `how we design” innovations as much as in “what innovations we design”.

  • A cybernetics paradigms framework for cyberspace: Key lens to cybersecurity

    There is no denial on the growing importance of cyber-security in today's ever increasing globalized world. Yet nations, enterprises and even small organizations still face difficulties with external and internal threats due to the approaches to cyber-security that are reductionist in nature. Dealing with cyber-security at the international, national and enterprise level needs approaches that works across many disciplines and are holistic. Cybernetics is one such promising approach that will aid cyber-security at all levels due to its multidisciplinary nature. But there have been no significant efforts or studies to use cybernetics for cyber-security. In this paper, we propose a generic cybernetics paradigms framework for cyberspace that will be useful to study various mechanisms of cyberspace from economics, engineering, software and social perspectives. It is argued that holistic understanding of cyberspace is the key for effective diagnosis and design of cyber-security of a nation or enterprise or small organization.

  • Systemic assessment of risks for projects: A systems and Cybernetics approach

    The current and past success rate of software projects is poor. This is mainly due to the reductionist/ analytic methods used in project risk assessments. The risk assessment practices adhered today based on standards or otherwise are non-systemic. These assessments cannot provide or deal with the systemic view of Project risks. They handle the project context and complex issues in Projects inadequately. The issue with reductionist thinking is that it leads to reductionist approach to problem solving and history has shown us Project failures continue to happen. This paper explains the Systemic Assessment of Risks (SAR) methodology that is proposed for assessment of project risks by considering Project as a system. This methodology uses the Cybernetics Risk Influence Diagramming (CRID) technique for identification of probable interconnected, interrelated and emergent risks. SAR's application in a software development project in a telecommunications enterprise demonstrates the methodology with the project risks assessed systemically.

  • The Cybernetics of Human Cognition and Adult Language Learning

    Language is composed of rules of ideas and thoughts using which one can express himself or herself in performing one's activities. Human beings are blessed with thoughts emanating from one's mental movements which they bring forward to express. Otherwise, these mental movements would stay as unstructured insensibility (a vague but definite one). Thoughts are nothing but actions from mind directed and triggered by sensations and feelings. These sensations remain somewhat shapeless without their definite configurations as thoughts and ideas. These configurations come out as speech when one wants to communicate with others, otherwise they remain within one-self as mere configurations. These configurations have sound characteristics which are known as sounds of thought familiar to everyone. This paper reviews the key concepts of human cognition and language and its cybernetics, particularly from the point of view of illiterate adults (a big societal challenge across the world as one third of the population is illiterate) learning a language. This paper discusses the key application areas which has driven the progress of technology called Computer Based Functional Literacy (CBFL) to address adult learning based on theory of language, communication and cognition.

  • Human-computer cybernetics and online documentation

    In human relations management, the experts have continuously expounded that the three most important skills are communication, communication and communication. This has been found to be no less true in the field of human- computer interface management. Effective cybernetics are crucial if computerized systems are to have a tangible impact on the results an organization achieves.

  • Fuzzy differential inclusions in atmospheric and medical cybernetics

    Uncertainty management in dynamical systems is receiving attention in artificial intelligence, particularly in the fields of qualitative and model based reasoning. Fuzzy dynamical systems occupy a very important position in the class of uncertain systems. It is well established that the fuzzy dynamical systems represented by a set of fuzzy differential inclusions (FDI) are very convenient tools for modeling and simulation of various uncertain systems. In this paper, we discuss about the mathematical modeling of two very complex natural phenomena by means of FDIs. One of them belongs to the atmospheric cybernetics (the term has been used in a broad sense) of the genesis of a cyclonic storm (cyclogenesis), and the other belongs to the bio- medical cybernetics of the evolution of tumor in a human body. Since a discussion of the former already appears in a previous paper by the first author, here, we present very briefly a theoretical formalism of cyclone formation. On the other hand, we treat the latter system more elaborately. We solve the FDIs with the help of an algorithm developed in this paper to numerically simulate the mathematical models. From the simulation results thus obtained, we have drawn a number of interesting conclusions, which have been verified, and this vindicates the validity of our models.

  • Governance of IT and cybernetics

    Ongoing project failures led to the development of an international standard for the governance of IT. Decades earlier, the science of Cybernetics established theorems and laws for organizations to be effective under changing environments. This paper examines the common areas of governance of IT and Cybernetics, and proposes directions for future development.

  • Application of Managerial Cybernetics in Interorganizational Coordination in Condition of Environmental Uncertainty: An Empirical Study

    By the application of managerial cybernetics, including the law of requisite variety and viable system model, this paper analysis manufacturing interorganizational coordination, and interorganizational information system (IOS) under environmental uncertainty by a typical case study in automobile company. The results show that the fit between environmental uncertainty, interorganizational coordination, and IOS can determine the performance of coordination significantly, and performance is better when coordination is active and IOS is frequently used under the condition of high environmental uncertainty. This paper testifies validity of managerial cybernetics' application in organizational research, and it also can show management implication for interorganizational managerial practices
