One of the first Soviet scientists who realized the future of science and cybernetic bravely defended her, became professor of the Department of Computational Mathematics, Moscow State University Alexei Lyapunov. Its significance in the history of Russian cybernetics unique. Suffice to say that in 1996 (posthumously), he was awarded the most prestigious award global computer community - Medal «Computer Pioneer» with the wording: "Creator of the operator method of programming, and the founder of the Soviet cybernetics programming. "In 2011, the scientific community will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the outstanding Russian scientist Alexei A. Lyapunov, which, according to contemporaries, the "father of the Soviet cybernetics and programming."
