A new conception of humans emerged and spread from the 1940s to the 1960s. It was linked to a cybernetic vision of man-computer symbiosis and to the conviction that communication was fundamental to the problem-solving process. This vision inspired an influential group of patrons and researchers to set a new agenda for computing.

5. Because the postwar exponents of operations research, cybernetics, systems theory, decision theory, game theory, control theory, artificial intelligence, and early programming all conducted mathematical, behavioral analyses of system functions, recent historians have come to label this constellation of fields the systems sciences.
6. J. von Neumann's, "First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC" originally appeared 30 June 1945. It was reprinted with typographical corrections in the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, vol. 15, no. 4, 1993, pp. 27–75.
