Dr. Forrester recently visited our SDM‘s System Dynamics class, taught by Brad Morrison: It was very inspiring event having the founder of System Dynamics and pioneer of computer memory talking about new world challenges for upcoming system dynamicists.
Jay W. Forrester is Professor Emeritus of Management System Dynamics at MIT
A pioneer in early digital computer development and a member of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Jay Forrester invented random-access magnetic-core memory during the first wave of modern computers. He also pioneered the growing field of system dynamics. He has researched the behavior of economic systems, including the causes of business cycles and the major depressions; a new type of dynamics-based management education; and system dynamics as a unifying theme in pre-college education. Forrester has received numerous awards for his books and has been awarded nine honorary degrees from universities around the world. Source: MIT Sloan School of Management
