Project Cybersyn

Based on an episode from the podcast 99% Invisible, this four-part series explores the story of Project Cybersyn, an experimental system used from 1971 to 1973 in Chile under President Salvador Allende. The goal of the project was simple: find a way to make socialism work more successfully than before, with the help of a sophisticated computer system. Each book tells a different story, examining the project’s inception, the technology employed, the mysterious operations room, and the military coup that led to Cybersyn’s destruction.
