Information theory is rapidly approaching its 70th birthday. What are promising future directions for research in information theory? Where will information theory be having the most impact in 10-20 years? What new and emerging areas are ripe for the most impact, of the sort that information theory has had on the telecommunications industry over the last 60 years? How should the IEEE Information Theory Society promote high-risk new research directions and broaden the reach of information theory, while continuing to be true to its ideals and insisting on the intellectual rigor that makes its breakthroughs so powerful? These are some of the questions that an ad hoc committee (composed of the present authors) explored over the past two years. We have discussed and debated these questions, and solicited detailed inputs from experts in fields including genomics, biology, economics, and neuroscience. This report is the result of these discussions.

A teoria do Design Inteligente (TDI) tem no seu arcabouço teórico a informação complexa especificada (o DNA, como um dos sinais de inteligência detectado na natureza). E a biologia do século 21 é uma ciência de informação... E a nova teoria geral da evolução lançada em agosto de 2015 não contemplou esse aspecto da TDI? Pode isso, Arnaldo?
