Presents a tribute to Claude Shannon. The IEEE Information Theory Society launched a global initiative to commemorate Claude Shannons centenary in 2016. This was part of an IEEE effort to pay due tribute to accomplished names whose venerable contributions have shaped our profession. Practically speaking, the world we live in today owes a lot to Shannon. Shannon greatly influenced technology and digital communications in such a way that has rightfully earned him the nickname, the "father of the Information Age." This man gave the world machine learning and information theory. His work paved the way for the creation of the knowledge-intensive societies we live in today. He put together the fundamental theoretical basis for how we communicate, store, secure, analyze, and measure information in the digital world.
