Nikolai M.Amosov – 102 Years since his birth on 6th of December, 2015
In 2013 Ukraine marked a centenaryof Nikolai M.Amosov. An excellent documentary film was made and shown on TV on the life and work of the outstanding scientist. His books were published again – a real intellectual multivolume treasure, filled with his biography, thoughts, summary of his scientific work.
Nikolai M.Amosov’s website has been updated as well: to begin with his two short thoughts -on sense of life and on the future of Ukraine.
On December 6, 2015 Nikolai M.Amosov might be 102 years old.

A glitch in time
Steven Johnson on what the Victorian computer pioneers Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage can teach us about innovation - and time travelling.
Оn July 8, 1835, an English nobleman, the 8th Baron King, was married in what was, by all accounts, a pleasant wedding, though it was a much smaller affair than one might have expected, given the groom's title and family wealth. The intimacy was due to the general public's fascination with his 19-year-old bride, the beautiful and brilliant Augusta Byron, now commonly known by her middle name of Ada, daughter of the notorious English Romantic poet, Lord Byron (1783-1824)......

Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in the period of Chornobyl tragedy.
There were practically no publications in mass media relating the work done by the employees of the Academy of Science of Ukraine on liquidation of Chornobyl disaster–no words but work done mattered. And in many cases this work verged on true heroism similar to those shown during the Second World War. There are many evidences of it…...

2013 December the 6 - Centennial of Amosov Nikolay Mikhailovich
2013 December the 6 - Centennial of Amosov Nikolay Mikhailovich - genuine surgeon-innovator, talanted writer, biocybernetician and the founder of the National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery in Ukraine.

NIKOLAY AM0SOV: Heart Surgeon and Public Servant in the U.S.S.R.
The initial drive to develop heart surgery was a worldwide effort, with doctors in North and South America, Europe, the U.S.S.R, and elsewhere all pushing towards open heart surgery and techniques to correct many forms of heart disease. In the former Soviet Union, Dr. Nikolay Amosov became one of the leading surgeons of his day. In a recent interview, Amosov remembered his introduction to medicine and his early days as a surgeon.
"I had been interested in medicine since my childhood," Amosov said......

Gennadi A.Mikhailov "When computers were big"
On Mai 2013 departed from life Gennadi A.Mikhailov, a veteran of the Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics, professor, Doctor of technical science, a famous specialist in the field of computer engineering, the Lebedevprize laureate. He was the founder of the "ZEM-1" computer – the first in the Soviet Union consecutive operation computer. He participated in development of the "Dnepr" computer, the first mass-produced computer of broad function. Under his guidance there was developed the first in Ukraine digital interpolator of "Avangard" system (Nikolaevshipyard). Read "Heroic deed of youth. Essay about Gennadi A.Mikhailov"…...
Cybernetic techniques
The term "cybernetic technique" proposed by B.Malinovsky was established in 1978. In the "Encyclopedia of Cybernetics" (1976, editor – V.Glushkov) this term is not mentioned. Unlike the computational techniques, cybernetic technique became an important direction of science, connected with the task of facilities creation for control, measuring, automatic and automated systems and devices with a use of computers......
On the 6-th of December 2012 Nikolai Amosov would be 99 years old
The sphere of interests of outstanding surgeon Nikolai Mihailovich Amosov included not only medical problems, but also general human cognition problems. General system approach to understanding human nature have been reflected in the scientific directions initiated by N.M.Amosov in various areas of cybernetics: modeling of physiological functions of human organism (physiological biocybernetics), modeling of cognitive and psychological human functions (psychological biocybernetics), modeling a man as a social creature (sociological biocybernetics). All these research directions have been represented in the Department of Biocybernetics founded in the Institute of Cybernetics by V.M.Glushkov and N.M.Amosov in 1961. Nikolai Mikhailovitch Amosov was the scientific leader of the Department since 1988....

Creator of the ternary computer

Creator of the ternary computer Being a senior student at the Moscow State University and working on his graduation diploma project, the future creator of the first and the only in the world ternary computer Nikolay Brusentsov (born in 1925 in Dneprodzerzhynsk, Ukraine) bumped into necessity to calculate the complex tables. By that time he had already got to know numerous calculating methods and composed the diffraction tables on elliptic cylinder (know as Brusentsov tables). Thus, the base for his activity in the field of computer engineering at the Moscow state University was formed.

Mykhail Kartsev. Late recognition

M. Kartsev (1923–1983) is one of those scientists, whose profound achievements got official and whole recognition, unfortunately, only after death. The academic elite didn't award him with high ranks.
Computer science and technique was his calling. He devoted to it all his time – at work, at home, on vacation.
Mykhail Kartsev was born in Kiev on March 10, 1923. Before the war his family moved to Odessa. At the first days of the Second World War he was drafted to the army. After discharge he studied at the radio technical department of the Moscow Energy Institute.

Opening word, or the shortest history of Ukrainian IT
In 1951, the Institute of electrical engineering of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR under the supervision of S.A. Lebedev created the Small electronic computing machine (MESM), the first of its kind in continental Europe.
At that time, Ukraine lacked scientific research organizations, manufacturing facilities, and specialists in the area of computer design, with the exception of Lebedev and his team.
In other words, the establishment of IT as a new branch of science began with one primitive computer, which was only capable of performing 50 operations per second...
