#2318: Dynamic Entropy

Dynamic Entropy

[One panel only with text and a few lines and arrows. There are two columns each with a heading. Beneath each heading is a quote written on four lines. Below the quote, in grey font, and indented, starting with a hyphen, with the text aligned to the right of this are five lines of text. This explains who the quote belongs too and where it was stated (in brackets at the end). From the bottom of each of these two gray text paragraphs gray curved arrows goes down to two gray lines. Below each of these two lines are one large word per line. They are again in black text.]


“It’s impossible to use the word ‘dynamic’ in the pejorative sense… Thus, I thought ‘Dynamic Programming’ was a good name.”


“You should call it ‘Entropy’… No one knows what entropy really is, so in a debate you will always have the advantage.”
