Lars Löfgren

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lars Löfgren is a Swedish cybernetician. He was awarded the Wiener Gold Medal by the American Society for Cybernetics in 2008.[1]

Lars Löfgren was involved in extending the logical and linguistic approaches to various problems raised by early cybernetics. His work helped develop a more consistent conceptual base for cybernetics through a holistic approach to second order cybernetics.[1]

He was one of the internationally renown cyberneticians invited by Heinz von Förster to the Biological Computer Laboratory,[2] but he did most of his work while professor at Lund University.
