In a blockbuster paper published in 1948, Claude Shannon introduced the notion of a “bit” and laid the foundation for the information age. His ideas have influenced such diverse fields as communication, linguistics, genetics, computing, cryptography, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cosmology. Mixing contemporary interviews, archival film, animation and dialogue drawn from interviews conducted with Shannon himself, this documentary tells the story of an overlooked genius who revolutionized the world, but never lost his childlike curiosity.
